Empty admin page can be solved by using the workaround in Bug 234860

Next problem (I really would appreciate tips):
I can now see the web interface, but nog log in. It says:
 Could not bind to LDAP server: Invalid credentials

from /var/log/messages:
Unable to bind to `cn=manager,cn=internal,dc=local,dc=alvin,dc=be', LDAP
Error = `Invalid credentials'

I found a script kolab_bootstrap and ran it.
