I found Gosa to work extremely well. See their site for setup and usage instructions.

Definitely agree Gosa is an excellent admin tool - but for not ideal for lower-level debugging - phpldapadmin? – symcbean Sep 7 '10 at 12:09
As of 2015 the project seems to be dead. – Adobe Oct 16 '15 at 8:27

Well, I'm not sure what the best is - that's a rather subjective question.

I've used phpLDAPadmin in the past, and it's worked quite well.

I use Apache Directory Studio, and I am very pleased with it.

I just want to +1 ADS for it's ease of use and full feature set. Some things I like: using an existing entry as a template for another, ease of creating any new entry from scratch, schema viewing, cross platform. – Tim Bielawa Sep 12 '10 at 18:41

Best free option - phpLDAPadmin.

But if you have some budget - better to buy It has a lot of good things: like self service (users will have possibilities to change password themselves), tree view as phpLDAPadmin has. It cost ~250 euro.

As I know phpLDAPadmin and LDAP Account Manager are projects of the same developer. And have the same bugs too :)
