Chapter 3. Configuring the LDAP Server
Once the software has been installed and built, you are ready to configure it
for use at your site. All slapd runtime configuration is accomplished through the
slapd.conf file, installed in the prefix directory you specified
in the configuration script or by default in /usr/local/etc/openldap.
This section details the commonly used configuration directives in slapd.conf.
For a complete list, see the slapd.conf(5) manual page. The configuration file directives
are separated into global, backend specific and
database specific. Here you will find descriptions of directives, together with their default values (if any) and
examples of use.
