I've browsed the configuration page for slapd and it mentions that,
for starting from version 2.3, "The LDAP configuration engine allows all
of slapd's configuration options to be changed on the fly, generally

What is the user and password required to update the LDAP configuration
I'm using slapd 2.4.23-7 on a Debian Squeeze (testing). I've tried using
the admin user (cn=admin,dc=...,dc=...) and it fails. This link
mentions using the cn=admin,dc=config account and a password found in
ldap.secret. I've not found that file and don't know what is the
password for the cn=admin,dc=config account.
The rootdn of the cn=config database, like any other database. By
default, it's cn=config.
