|OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : OpenLDAP Software FAQ : Configuration : SLAPD Configuration : Backends : 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.
