Re: ldap newbie again

Hi,You need to find binary file slapd for your specific installation, which
actually starts openldap.
After my last unsuccessful try and many months of sulking I am trying
LDAP again on a stand alone machine with Mandrakelinux release 10.1
(Official) on AMD 2600+ XP machine.
I am very very new to Ldap and after my last trust with it am lacking in
confidence on ldap. Can someone suggest how do I start with it? I have
no specific requirement but a shared address book would be a nice idea.
How do I start with it? I have installed,
# rpm -qa | grep ldap
There is no ldap binary I can find or a slapd.conf file.
Please tolerate these questions and suggest where do I start?
If it had started openldap on boot, you can verify it using ..
# ps -A | grep slapd
As you see, it starts a process slapd.
If you have not edited slapd.conf edit it first.
It can be either in /etc or /usr/etc or /usr/local/etc depending on your
You can atleast find if it exists or not..
# ls / -R | grep slapd.conf
I suggest you install Berkeley DB by sleepycat as backend for LDAP. You
can also use gdbm or ldbm as backend.
I have openldap installation instructions here but not sure if it will
help you as it assumes you are installing from source.
But It explains bare minimum configuration for openldap.
