RE: Problem with OpenLDAP 2.0.25


I have in fact followed the admin quick start guide, and I still have
the same problem.  I have installed LDAP, created an syntactically
correct ldif files and added them with "ldapadd -x -D
"cn=Manager,dc=mydomain,dc=com" -f mystuff.ldif.  That is where the
debugging output comes from, and no, the dbb files do not exist in the
folder.  And using slapadd gives me "slapadd: could not open database."

But it's also telling you one of your database files doesn't exist. It
can't exist until you've added basic data (at very least the DSA suffix)
with an ldif file and ldapadd or slapadd.

But your debug is telling you they do not exist, isn't it? Can't you see
for yourself? (ls -l in the db directory).

That last is useless, since thes files are specific to your own

I can't understand why people don't just follow the admin guide
quick-start to get started, at least. All the difficult parts come
*after* that.
