RE: Problem with OpenLDAP 2.0.25

To answer Pierangelo and Ian's questions...

The folder exists, slapd is currently running under the root account,
which owns the folder.  I have also made the folder read/writeable by
all users, just to see if that is the problem.

what userid your slapd runs under? Does that userid
have write permission to the directory/files the db
is expected to reside?
