Making and Installing the OpenLDAP Distribution =============================================== This file provides brief instructions on how to build and install OpenLDAP on UNIX (and UNIX-like) systems. More detailed information and instructions can be found in The OpenLDAP Administrator's Guide (available from http://www.openldap.org/doc/). It is recommended that you read, or at least skim through, ALL of the instructions in this file before attempting to build the software. Making and Installing the OpenLDAP Distribution ----------------------------------------------- 1. Unpack the distribution and change directory: % tar xfz openldap-VERSION.tgz % cd openldap-VERSION (replacing VERSION with the appropriate version string). If you are reading this file, you probably have already done this! 2. Type: % ./configure --help to list available configuration options. The configure script also looks for compiler/linker options on the command line and in the environment. These include: Variable Description Example CC C compiler gcc CFLAGS C flags -O -g CPPFLAGS cpp flags -I/path/include -D__FOO__=42 LDFLAGS ld flags -L/usr/local/lib LIBS libraries -llib PATH command path /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin See doc/install/configure for generic configure documentation. 3. Configure the build system: % ./configure [options] [var=value ...] If all goes well, the configure script will automatically detect the appropriate settings. If the configure script fails, you should read the config.log file that it generated to see what it was trying to do and exactly what failed. You may need to specify additional options and/or variables besides those listed above to obtain desired results, depending on your operating system. 4. Build dependencies: % make depend 5. Build the system: % make If all goes well, the system will build as configured. If not, return to step 3 after reviewing the configuration settings. 6. Test the standalone system: This step requires the standalone LDAP server, slapd(8), with MDB support. % make test If all goes well, the system has been built as configured. If not, return to step 2 after reviewing your configuration settings. 7. Install the software. You may need to become the super-user (e.g. root) to do this (depending on where you are installing things): % su root -c 'make install' 8. That's it. Enjoy! See the OpenLDAP Administrator's Guide and the manual pages for the individual applications for configuration and use information. You may also want to edit the configuration files used by the various components. These configuration files are located in the OpenLDAP configuration directory (normally /usr/local/etc/openldap). ldap.conf client defaults slapd.conf Standalone LDAP daemon lload.conf LDAP Load Balancer daemon schema/*.schema Schema Definitions --- This work is part of OpenLDAP Software <http://www.openldap.org/>.
