When the authentication method is set to LDAP, you also need to
make sure the [LDAP] section is set up appropriately.
Assuming the settings are correct, you might find it useful to
add some debug statements to the authentication process in web/sys/authn/LDAPAuthentication.php
to pinpoint exactly where authentication is failing. This can often give you
clues about whether the problem has to do with your LDAP settings or something
else (like network security). One common LDAP problem involves the way
OpenLDAP validates security certificates – see http://old.nabble.com/LDAP-td28621491.html
for more details.
Depending on how your local LDAP is set up, it is also possible
that VuFind’s LDAP implementation won’t map exactly to your local needs. Hopefully
once you have done some debugging, you’ll know more about how to work around
any such differences. Feel free to share your findings and ask more questions

It's like an user who has account can login and track the
book and request for that particular book if it's Checked-out.
The [Authentication] section in our system looks like
method = LDAP
Is there anything I'd work on.When I try to access with the account I've,it
responded me saying "We cannot log you in at this time. Please try again

What do you need to use for authentication? VuFind comes with several
different authentication options, and you can select which one it uses in the
[Authentication] section of web/conf/config.ini. If you need to build
something custom, you can add a new authentication module to the web/sys/authn
directory; if you look at an existing methods, you should have a fairly good
model for building your own.
Please let me know if you still have questions -- and sorry if I'm
misunderstanding what you need.
