Broken PHP Code : "Allowing Slashes in the URL Path With Apache"

I had a problem where I needed to pass an LDAP URL with two forward slashes 

in some PHP code. I couldn't get it to work but I found out how to fix it: 

I had to configure Apache to allow encoded slashes with AllowEncodedSlashes Onin the relevant vhost by adding :
       AllowEncodedSlashes On
    # ...
Into the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf config file. I then ran 
sudo service apache2 restart
And the problem was fixed.
