slapd-ldif (5oldap)

Name

slapd-ldif - LDIF backend to slapd

Synopsis

/etc/openldap/slapd.conf

Description

SLAPD-LDIF(5oldap)                                          SLAPD-LDIF(5oldap)



NAME
       slapd-ldif - LDIF backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS
       /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.
