(Answer) (Category) OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : (Category) OpenLDAP Software FAQ : (Category) Configuration : (Category) SLAPD Configuration : (Category) Backends : (Answer) What is a database?
A database is an instance of a backend, i.e. of a storage type; think of a variable declaration:
    int i;
where int, the type, is the backend, and i, the name, is the database.

Configuration directives appearing after a

    database <type>
directive refer only to that instance of that backend type.

See What is a backend? and slapd.conf(5) for details.
