Hi there, ⁣:slight_smile:
I have a problem with my installation.
I installed Passbolt on an Ubuntu 20.04 with the desire to configure the LDAP.
On the documentation, it is written that it is necessary to execute commands in this directory:


But for me, this directory does not exist.
I tried a full reinstallation, thinking it was an installation issue, but I still have this issue.
Do you have any idea where it could come from?
Thanks for your Help :slight_smile:
Ubuntu 20.04
2 core processors.

Hello @Kira1N, welcome to the forum :slightly_smiling_face:

It seems that you followed this documentation
Indeed, when “/var/www/passbolt” is mentionned it is related to the from source installation.

Installing Passbolt with package will be saved in /usr/share/php/passbolt for the source code and /etc/passbolt/ is formerly /var/www/passbolt/config

LDAP is a Passbolt Pro feature, do you have a Passbolt Pro subscription?
If so, please contact us at

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your quick reply,
and no, I don’t have Passbolt Pro.
Do I need Passbolt pro to use LDAP?

Yes, LDAP is a Passbolt Pro feature, you can have a look at our pricing page which contain a comparison of all our features.

If you plan to use Passbolt within your company and if you are interested you can proceed to request a free trial

Have a great day :slightly_smiling_face:

Ok, thanks you very much.
I had another question.
The data base works with Mysql Db right ?
Can you tell me where the database containing the user information is located and if it is possible to retrieve it via a RestAPI or with a node JS script ?
This would allow me to recover information while waiting to consider taking the Passbolt Pro version.
Thank you.
