    I read this 50 times about... LDAP


    The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol provides access to X.500 directory
    services. The services may
    be stand-alone part of a distributed directory service. This API
    supports LDAP over TCP, LDAP over SSL,
    and LDAP over IPC (UNIX domain sockets).

    >> what is LDAP for

    In simple term, it's a centralize database to store data where it can be reached from anywhere from anyone or with access restriction to the info.

    >> but I do know what is does , benefit, application

    Most TCP applications are not LDAP-aware, but LDAP can be added to extend the capabilities. As I said, centralize database, you can keep all .htaccess password, ftp logins, qmail account info, address book and all kind of stuffs to LDAP.
