I recently did an upgrade from debian wheezy to debian jessie (testing). After the upgrade ejabberd doesn't start anymore if LDAP is enabled.

Has anybody experienced the same problem? Or some ideas on how to fix that problem?

Thank you very much in advance,

I haven't changed my config, so it should be ok:

%% Authentication using LDAP
{auth_method, [ldap, internal]}.
%%{auth_method, [internal]}.
%% List of LDAP servers:
{ldap_servers, ["localhost"]}.
%% Encryption of connection to LDAP servers (LDAPS):

%%{ldap_encrypt, tls}.

%% Password to LDAP manager:
%%{ldap_password, ""}.
%% Search base of LDAP directory:
