RE: ACL to create a CRUD to OpenLDAP

> Hi, all
> I'm writing a little script to allow some people to manage LDAP users, as a CRUD. I created a user

I believe you've simply switched your '-b' (searchbase) and '-D' (binddn).  Should be:

-D uid=crud,ou=Applications,dc=domain,dc=org  -b uid=ftppinguim,ou=FTPUsers,dc=domain,dc=org
