i'd amend that process slightly:

Not quite there yet...

Make a habit of always running the slap tools as the user & group
slapd runs as, so you'll never screw up file ownerships for slapd.
I.e.   slapd -u ldap   vs   su ldap -c 'slapcat'.

1. stop slapd

1.5. su ldap
     Might as well do umask 0077 while you are at it.

2. slapcat -b 'cn=config' -l config.ldif
3. mv slapd.d slapd.d.bak
4. mkdir slapd.d
5. edit ldif as desired
6. slapadd -n 0 -F slapd.d/ -l config.ldif
7. slaptest -F slapd.d/

8.   exit      # from 'su'

9. start slapd

     I.e.  slapd -u ldap -F /whatever/slapd.d/

the order of a few of the steps could vary slightly depending on
personal preference, and technically, slapd doesn't necessarily have
to be stopped so early on, but for the sake of those to which this
topic applies, it keeps things simple.
