If Lost - Is there any way to retrieve the changes which i made?
"As far as the OpenLDAP Project is concerned, conversion from slapd.conf
to slapd.d is a one-way trip. Migrate everything else forward."
For backing up you dynamic config: You can slapcat the config database
(slapcat -n 0 -l config_current.ldif), keep it like that or change
whatever and slapadd it back while the server is offline (slapadd -F
/etc/ldap/slapd.d -n 0 -l config.ldif). You could also manually convert
it to a slapd.conf (it should not be that difficult), although this is
not encouraged. You may also want to read:
Since OpenLDAP is progressively moving away from slapd.conf, admins
should progressively adapt to dynamic config. Nevertheless,
experimentation is not prohibited!
Changes are never lost. Just backup/store/handle your config(s)
