Hi, I'm a newbie, downloaded a Windows compilation of OpenLDAP v2.4.18

Am having some problems trying to get a client to bind to my setup, the
error is: do_bind: invalid dn

Hope to receive some pointers.   Thanks.  : )

My slapd.conf (i basically used the default, only suffix, rootdn and
rootpw is changed):
database    bdb
suffix        "dc=click,dc=com"
rootdn        "cn=wael,dc=click,dc=com"
# Cleartext passwords, especially for the rootdn, should
# be avoid.  See slappasswd(8) and slapd.conf(5) for details.
# Use of strong authentication encouraged.
rootpw        password
# The database directory MUST exist prior to running slapd AND
# should only be accessible by the slapd and slap tools.
# Mode 700 recommended.

You don't say if/how/what you loaded data into the directory, so the only assumption we can make is that you were trying to connect as Root DN.
Joshua > Hi Buchan, thanks for replying. No data, I've not come to that yet. Yes, I'm connecting as Root DN.
conn=0 op=0 do_bind: invalid dn (wael)

"wael" is not a DN. Most likely, you want to bind as:

For example, if you have ldapsearch available on the same host, something like:

ldapsearch -x -D cn=wael,dc=click,dc=com -h localhost -W -b '' namingContexts
Joshua >  localhost didn't work, i used my pc name and got:
