A puppet module to install and configure LDAP Account Manager (LAM), a webfrontend for managing entries stored in an LDAP directory.


A working PHP installation as well as a properly configured webserver are required.

Both puppet-php as well as puppetlabs-apache are highly recommended to setup a functional environment. This task is beyond the scope of this module.


Basic usage

The minimum configuration should at least specify the desired version:

class { 'lam':
  version => '7.3',

This will install and configure LAM. You should use the symlink target (which defaults to /opt/lam) as the document root when setting up the webserver.

LAM needs write access to several directories, so if your webserver runs with a different user account, you should specify the following additional parameters:

class { 'lam':
  group   => 'wwwgroup',
  user    => 'wwwuser',
  version => '7.3',

The module maintains a dedicated data directory for LAM, so configuration and runtime data is not lost when upgrading. The location of this directory can be customized:

class { 'lam':
  datadir => '/path/to/lam-data',
  version => '7.3',

Pro edition

In theory the Pro edition of LAM is supported by the $edition parameter. You need to download it from the customer portal and place the archive on a local mirror, which should later be specified by using the $mirror parameter.

However, due to the lack of a test license this feature is untested.

class { 'lam':
  edition => 'pro',
  mirror  => '',
  version => '7.3',


Classes and parameters are documented in
