I have a working ldap db (lbdm) which works just fine for what I am doing
now. It is very simplistic, though, and in learning how to do what I
want, I have been looking at some Faq-o-Matic pages, e.g. :
http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/1005.html This is
I have downloaded the .conf file listed and try to use that as my
slapd.conf file and get an error.
Info as as follows:
Fedora Core 1
The first few lines of the slapd.conf taken from the Address Book Example
# minimal database
index objectClass eq
When starting slapd as follows:
slapd -d -1 -f /etc/openldap/slapd.conf (That's -"one" debugging level)
# slapd -d -1 -f /etc/openldap/slapd.conf
@(#) $OpenLDAP: slapd 2.1.22 (Oct 23 2003 10:23:24) $

line 3 (suffix "dc=example,dc=com")

Can someone please let me know what is wrong with the suffic statement? I
would think this example would work. And other potions of the
documentation show this type of construction.
