Re: instalation configuration: i am loosing my hairs

It doesn't keep it inside the service itself, it has a local database file of sorts, OOTB. You can always hook it up to postgresql or other database system.

"backend" = "database" of some sort...

What is the different between "backend" and "database" terms ?

Dear list members,

i am reading the OpenLDAP Software 2.3 Administrator's Guide. I saw
that for this version, OpenLDAP keeps its configuration inside Ldap
service itself.

I could understand how it could be done: It seemed to me an
chicken-egg problem?
After just installation, how could i "tell" openldap daemon server to
access this initial configuration file?
Where do i get this file from? Does it come from the tarball distributed?

Could you give the way i should "walk" ?

write a minimal slapd.conf than execute slaptest -f<path-to-file> -F<path-to-directory>, the diretory name must be slapd.d. man slapd(8), man slaptest(8)
