Hello Tim,

the "password" you supply won't work, as it is not encoded in base64.

Utter nonsense.

You missed the more obvious problem.

database        bdb
suffix          "dc=example,dc=net"
rootdn          "cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=net"
# Cleartext passwords, especially for the rootdn, should
# be avoided.  See slappasswd(8) and slapd.conf(5) for details.
# Use of strong authentication encouraged.
  rootpw                secret
# rootpw                 {CRYPT}secret

The rootpw line has a leading space.
