Morning All,

So I have successfully installed and configured openldap with BerkeleyDB on Fedora 8. I have been for the past couple a months trying without success to configure it with MySQL. I have loaded the backsql files, configured the odbc.ini and odbcinst.init files and have configured slapd.conf. When I run /etc/init/d/ldap start it says [ok] but when I check the status it says [stopped]. when I run /etc/init.d/ldap retart it says [failed]. Below is a sample of the slapd.conf file I configured. I could really use the help cause I need this to be up and running, thanks.

# See slapd.conf(5) for details on configuration options.

# service AND an understanding of referrals.

# The next three lines allow use of TLS for encrypting connections using a
# dummy test certificate which you can generate by changing to
# /etc/pki/tls/certs, running "make slapd.pem", and fixing permissions on
# slapd.pem so that the ldap user or group can read it. Your client software
# may balk at self-signed certificates, however.

# Sample security restrictions
# Require integrity protection (prevent hijacking)
# Require 112-bit (3DES or better) encryption for updates
# Require 63-bit encryption for simple bind
# security ssf=1 update_ssf=112 simple_bind=64

# Sample access control policy:
# Root DSE: allow anyone to read it
# Subschema (sub)entry DSE: allow anyone to read it
# Other DSEs:
# Allow self write access
# Allow authenticated users read access
# Allow anonymous users to authenticate
# Directives needed to implement policy:
# access to dn.base="" by * read
# access to dn.base="cn=Subschema" by * read
# access to *
# by self write
# by users read
# by anonymous auth
#
# if no access controls are present, the default policy
# allows anyone and everyone to read anything but restricts
# updates to rootdn. (e.g., "access to * by * read")
#
# rootdn can always read and write EVERYTHING!

I have ran this config with and without "directory /var/lib/ldap" commented out as I have seen some configs with it commented out.

Thanks.
