i hope you guys can help me...

i've realized that there's something wrong with the entries and so i've decided to do it all over again:

Looking at these entries the look ok. You don't really need the objectclass organization in the root-entry. And if you bind as Manager or User you probably want to have some objectclass which supports the userPassword attribute.

dn: dc=bidster,dc=com
objectclass: dcObject
objectclass: organization
o: bidster
dc: bidster

dn: cn=Manager,dc=bidster,dc=com
objectclass: organizationalRole
cn: Manager

dn: cn=User,dc=bidster,dc=com
objectclass: organizationalRole
cn: User

newbie that i am, i'm having trouble deleting these entries.i've tried

   ldapdelete -D "cn=Manager,dc=bidster,dc=com" -W "dc=bidster,dc=com"

and mostly some other variations of that. however i only get

Delete Result: Operation not allowed on non-leaf (66)
Additional info: subtree delete not supported

OpenLDAP cannot automatically delete the subtree of the entry (subtree: below the entry there are some others).

It should work when you specify the "-r" option (delete recursively).

Or take a look at gq, it supports subtree-delete and it's an UI (*urks*)

how should this be done, or is there a quick way to do this, like, just deleting a file or something?

If you want to drop the whole database and there are a _lot_ of entries you will be much faster to stop ldap, delete the database-storage (look at the directory-statement in slapd.conf) and restart ldap. Now your database is empty.

If you run replication it is probably better to delete the entries with
ldapdelete than logging on at every server and delete the database
locally - depends on how much servers you have ;)

thanks in advance for the help. :)
