Most so-called tutorials are utter crap; use the official OpenLDAP
sysadmin docs.

What version of OL are you using, did you say?

Which has nothing to do with your base entry as listed below.

It won't work anyway. You must first enter your base entry, then your
child entries, based on your base entry. You can't have base entry
"dc=horvitznewspapers, dc=net" and child entries " dc=somesite, dc=net".

Read the sysadmin guide for your particular OpenLDAP version (should be
2.1, 2.2 or 2.3) and follow exactly that.
