Re: ldap newbie again
It's very nice that u want to jump again in OpenLdap.
Best way to start OpenLdap as a stand alone is to compile it manually
Get the source from OpenLdap.org
untar it in some good location like /usr/local/src
Go in to /usr/local/src/openldap-2.2.26 and run below command.
<This is my settings>
./configure --prefix=/var/ldap \
--with-tls --enable-aci \
--enable-modules --enable-slapi \
--enable-slp --disable-bdb \
--enable-ldbm --with-ldbm-api=gdbm \
--enable-dgngroup --enable-proxy-cache \
You need some extra packages for that, i think u can download it from net.
Then<makedep && make && make install && make test>
If make test run successfully then your open ldap is running successfully.
Now u can find slapd.conf in /var/ldap/etc/openldap/
Now go to /var/ldap/sbin/
You can see junk of log and at last line slapd starting.
That's it enjoy...
Best doc for OpenLdap is
If you have any Q? regarding this revert me back.

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?
With warm regards,
