13.4. OpenLDAP Configuration Files

OpenLDAP configuration files are installed into the /etc/openldap/ directory. The following is a brief list highlighting the most important directories and files:

  • /etc/openldap/ldap.conf — This is the configuration file for all client applications which use the OpenLDAP libraries such as ldapsearch, ldapadd, Sendmail, Evolution, and Gnome Meeting.

  • /etc/openldap/slapd.conf — This is the configuration file for the slapd daemon. Refer to Section 13.6.1 Editing /etc/openldap/slapd.conf for more information file.

  • /etc/openldap/schema/ directory — This subdirectory contains the schema used by the slapd daemon. Refer to Section 13.5 The /etc/openldap/schema/ Directory for more information.

Note Note

If the nss_ldap package is installed, it creates a file named /etc/ldap.conf. This file is used by the PAM and NSS modules supplied by the nss_ldap package. Refer to Section 13.7 Configuring a System to Authenticate Using OpenLDAP for more information.
