RE: Internal Server Error

I checked my log messages after posting this and I've noticed that everytime
my program crashes the ldap server, This is logged to the messages log:

ldbm: ==> put: attempt to modify a read-only tree

I'm modiying the userPassword attribute.  Is it really read-only?  What does
this error message mean?

Thanks for any insight,

Matthew Hoskins

Turn on debugging (see the Admin Guide
http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin/index.html ) and then take a look at the
debug log to see what your client programming is sending and how OpenLDAP is
interpreting it.
