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 24.6.1, “Editing /etc/openldap/slapd.conf” for more information.
/etc/openldap/schema/ directory — This subdirectory contains the schema used by the slapd daemon. Refer to Section 24.5, “The /etc/openldap/schema/ Directory” for more information.
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 24.7, “Configuring a System to Authenticate Using OpenLDAP” for more information.
