Re: openldap does not want to write log files?

you are missing local4.debug in your syslog.conf, syslog messages are
logged at DEBUG level by default, unless you say otherwise.

"       -s syslog-level
	      This option tells  slapd	at  what  level  debugging  statements
	      should  be  logged  to  the syslog(8) facility.  The value "sys-
	      log-level" can be set to any value or combination allowed by the
	      "-d" switch.  Slapd logs all messages selected by "syslog-level"
	      at the syslog(3) severity level "DEBUG", on the  unit  specified
	      with "-l".

dont know why the other log is not working, perhaps check you are not
writing logs as the ldap user or you need to --enable-debug during
configure ?.
