(ITS#6529) slapcat: bad configuration file!

My aim is to regularly backup openldap database, so I created a special
backup-user to do that. But while doing this command: "slapcat -f
/etc/openldap/slapd.conf -b "dc=my,dc=domain,dc=com" -l backup.ldif - I get this
error: "/etc/openldap/slapd.conf: line 77: invalid path: Permission denied
slapcat: bad configuration file!". I watched my conf file and there is
"directory /var/lib/openldap-data/my-domain-com" string in line 77. I looked for
permission rights and all seems to be properly. Don't know what to do...

By the way, the same command under "root" works perfectly.
