any ideas?

Your slapd.d configuration should have been based on a slapd.conf file,
possibly included within your OS/Distro package (I'm assuming you didn't
compile it yourself).

You can use slapcat to obtain local access to your data. Use 'slapcat -n0'
to obtain the configuration database. If necessary, you can replace your
configuration with 'slapadd -n0'.
