Re: Newbie Startup Problems

In slapd.conf (mine is in /usr/local/etc/openldap) look for the line

rootpw                   password-here

as the comments above it explain, cleartext should be avoided (but will
work).  There are many utilities that will allow you to set an encrypted
password instead -- you should already have slappasswd -- give it a try.
