You should probably include more detail on what you are attempting to do.
It seems you want to store accounts for some web-based service in LDAP. This
is relatively easy to do. All popular web scripting languages (perl, php,
python, ruby) have LDAP support, and some web application frameworks also
have LDAP support (e.g. Catalyst, with Plugin::Authenitcation::Store::LDAP
You should never really need an LDIF file. You don't give much detail on what
the mysql is to be used for. I typically put web application *data* in an
RDBMS, but credentials in a directory (LDAP).
