RE: OpenLDAP not listening on port 389
Thanks for your reply. db_recover made no difference, slapd still finishes
slapd startup: initiated.
backend_startup: starting "dc=ukstokes,dc=com"
I will try with the different versions of Berkeley DB and OpenLDAP. Just so
you know, the reasons I chose those specific versions is I am trying to
configure a server for Open Exchange, and I know these versions are
compatible with it. Well, according to the HowTo's I am following anyway.

As noted repeatedly on the list, you use BDB 4.3 with OpenLDAP at your own
risk. The recommended version of BDB to use with OpenLDAP is BDB
4.2.52+patches. I will also note that BDB 4.3.29 is the current BDB 4.3
release (although I still wouldn't use it). BDB 4.4.20+patches has shown
good results so far in testing, but is not widely used at this time, if you
don't want to use BDB 4.2.52.
I also note that the current stable release of OpenLDAP is 2.3.19, and the
current release of OpenLDAP is 2.3.20. 2.2.26 is quite old, and the entire
2.2 branch has been deprecated for some time.
In your case, I would try recovering the BDB database while slapd is
stopped (see db_recover) command, and see if that allows slapd to fully
start. I would highly recommend upgrading your OL software to the current
release (2.3.20) and using either BDB 4.2.52 or BDB 4.4.20.
