I am new to ldap and really just need some basic tutorial-paced info. I have
this Wrox book Implementing Ldap, but it doesn't seem so good. Anyone know of
an OpenLdap-specific tutorial that goes into more detail than the quick start
guide? I can't get anything to work beyond installation and starting the
server. I imagine this is just because of my lack of understanding. I keep
getting invalid credentials and object not found error messages. I'm trying to
import an ldif file like the one in the quick start guide, but it says object
not found. See, I don't even know what object it means. I'm just following the
guide and typing what it says without understanding what the fields in
slapd.conf REALLY mean and what the arguments to ldapadd mean. It really bugs
me to just copy something without understanding it.

Anyway, sorry to take up space in this list. newbie@openldap.org list perhaps
is needed? But if anyone can point me to some newbie info, I'd be very
grateful. Thanks.
