SYNOPSIS

/usr/local/etc/openldap/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION

The LDIF backend to slapd(8) is a basic storage backend that stores entries in text files in LDIF format, and exploits the filesystem to create the tree structure of the database. It is intended as a cheap, low performance easy to use backend, and it is exploited by higher-level internal structures to provide a permanent storage.

CONFIGURATION

These slapd.conf options apply to the LDIF backend database. That is, they must follow a "database ldif" line and come before any subsequent "backend" or "database" lines. Other database options are described in the slapd.conf(5) manual page.
directory <dir>
  Specify the directory where the database tree starts. The directory must exist and grant appropriate permissions (rwx) to the identity slapd is running with.

ACCESS CONTROL

The LDIF backend does not honor any of the access control semantics described in slapd.access(5). Only read (=r) access to the entry pseudo-attribute and to the other attribute values of the entries returned by the search operation is honored, which is performed by the frontend.
