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