Re: Help needed to install openLDAP

How did your schema files come to be corrupted? The sysconfdir option you supplied should have resulted in an /etc/openldap directory, with a schema subdirectory, being created.

As for SASL, SSL, and BDB 4.2, the results of "./configure --help" show the way. All are automatically configured if the appropriate software exists on your system, though you may need to set CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS for correct resolution by the linker. I create build scripts around my packages so the configuration can be recreated:

lauterbur{6}# more build-it.sh

## BDB was built with prefix=/usr/local, so no FLAGS are needed.
env CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/ssl/include -I/usr/local/include" \
    LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/ssl/lib -L/usr/local/lib \
             -R/usr/local/ssl/lib -R/usr/local/lib" \
    ./configure --disable-cleartext --enable-crypt --with-tls


Note that, by default, Berkeley installs itself to /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2 for some reason. The path of least resistance is to configure the BDB install with --prefix=/usr/local:

lauterbur{13}# more /root/newpkgs/db-4.2.52/build_unix/build-it.sh

env LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib -R/usr/local/lib" \
    ../dist/configure --with-pam --prefix=/usr/local

    I am newbie installing openLDAP-2.2.24(using
SOURCE) in Redhat 9 and while installing i used
"--sysconfdir=/etc" along with "./configure" so my
schema files got corrupted and so next time when
configuring i just used "./configure" then all my
files where in "/usr/local/etc/openldap".

   I want my configuration files in /etc....? so what
may be my options to be used along with "./configure"
and to enable SASL,SSL and Berkeley DB 4.2.

Thanks in advance.
