Since it's ldap_bind that's complaining, you can eliminate myldif.ldif
as the cause.  It's likely that the rootdn is not within the subtree
defined by database suffix or that you are not using the rootdn with
ldapadd (-b option) or you are not connecting to the server you think
you are connecting to (use -h).  If the inconsistency is not evident
to you, I would suggest enabling logging and examining it's output
to obtain more detail as to the problem.  Or you might post details
(slapd.conf, exact ldapadd command enterred, it's output, and relevant
sections of the log).
