I had the problem that I used an password containing the character “<“. This works fine for the 389 directory server, but you cannot login with that password through the Kolab Webadmin interface, because PHP does not handle that character “<” in POST data: if the password is “test<1234”, it only assumes “test”. Therefore the login will fail.

Update: Aleksander has now fixed this: https://git.kolab.org/T1232. Thank you!
