OK, I got permission to go ahead with this one (finally), and I'm stuck on
access to * by * read
line 38 (database bdb)

line 42 (access to * by * read)

line 44 (uri ldap://184.108.40.206:389/)
.\slapd.conf: line 44: unknown directive "uri" inside backend database
line 49 (overlay rwm)
overlay rwm not found
slapd shutdown: freeing system resources.
connections_destroy: nothing to destroy.
I tried looking for more info on the database directives in the docs, but
all I could find was stuff on olcdatabase. Changing database type to ldap
(since I want to use that as a backend, and that was originally what was
suggested) also failed, giving me an 'unrecognized database type' error.

(3) I haven't gotten far enough to know for sure, since ldap requires
that the scheme be published (at least, according to LDAP Directories
Explained, by T Howes), can I have OpenLDAP use the published scheme from

With OpenLDAP code you can't. Sysnet developed a module that allows to
query a remote server at startup, and optionally to refresh the query
periodically, so that the local schema is sync'ed. This module has never
been released as it is experimental; you may write something similar (and
simpler) yourself. Something similar was also posted some time ago in the
contrib ITS, but I coulndn't locate it right now.
