Do you realize that most of the directives in your slapd.conf are
back-bdb specific, and thus meaningless when using back-sql?  Do you
realize that back-sql is NOT a transparent replacement for back-bdb?
How did you define the LDAP to SQL mappings in the database?  Did you
read <http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/978.html>?  Did you
ultimately read <http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/378.html>?

Short answer to your specific problem: back-sql needs specific mapping
between LDAP and SQL data to allow writing (in that case, adding an
entry).  Probably, you didn't provide any.
