Re: Newbie question about ldif

"top" is the ancestor of all objectClasses. I do not know why your utility does not work. If it were me, I would test your LDAP setup by using ldapsearch to verify that the entries can be returned before using some other layer:

ldapsearch -h hostname -p port -s base -b 'uid=scarter,ou=people,dc=ceu,dc=hu' '(objectClass=*)' dn

The objectClass (which is an attribute in and of itself) defines what

objectClass attribute for each type of data needed, for example:

dn: cn=bakshi,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: top
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
cn: bakshi
sn: bakshi
userPassword: a_password
description: a user entry

Thanks a lot for your response. It seems that we can use more than one
object class. Though interested to know the objectclass:top.  Shall I
need to do any modification to slapd.conf  ( beside base DN and
Administrative user/Password ) to work with ldap ? I have followed this
sample ldif ( from net ) but phpldapadmin does not show me the entries

dn: dc=ceu,dc=hu
objectclass: dcObject
objectclass: organization
o: CEENET Workshop 2001

dn: ou=people,dc=ceu,dc=hu
objectclass: organizationalUnit
ou: people

dn: uid=scarter,ou=people,dc=ceu,dc=hu
cn: Sam Carter
sn: Carter

objectclass: person
objectclass: organizationalPerson
objectclass: inetOrgPerson

Dear all,

greetings to all.
Hope I have joined the right list to discuss about openldap technology.

I am working with typo3 and openldap. Typo3 is a CMS ( content
management system ) just like Drupal, Joomla etc..
I like to implement an openldap based system where I can have a
organization based structure like department, company etc and can store persons with their name, address, contact along with userid/ password which will be used to authenticate the front end user login in typo3.

To start with I need a well designed ldif file. I have already get some example ldif from internet but those are missing the useris/ password
More over the " objectclass: organizationalPerson " " objectclass: inetOrgPerson " "objectClass: dcObject" "objectClass: organization"
are very much confusing :-(

Could any one kindly enlighten me a little about those "objectcalss"
and which one is best suited for my  requirement ?
A sample  ldif file with little explanation will help me a great.
