NAME

       slapd-ldif - LDIF backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/ldap/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.

FILES

       /etc/ldap/slapd.conf
              default slapd configuration file
