Hi all;

A very stupid question, i have read the admin guide in http://www.openldap.org. I could not understand what's the exactly means of the index types (pres eq approx sub none)?

Could anyone pick me up?
Sorry for the stupid question.


About half-way down I talk about what the different indexing types mean, if that helps.

Just a nit - presence indexing is not included in equality indexing. There was a desire to do this at one point in back-bdb's design but that was abandoned.

The indexing types were chosen to correspond to the available search filters defined in the LDAP protocol. You should read more about LDAP basics if you don't understand what the filters mean.
