SLAPD-LDIF(5)		      File Formats Manual		 SLAPD-LDIF(5)

NAME
       slapd-ldif - LDIF backend to slapd

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

DESCRIPTION
       The LDIF	backend	to slapd(8) is a basic storage backend that stores en-
       tries in	text files in LDIF format, and exploits	the filesystem to cre-
       ate 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  di-
	      rectory  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 de-
       scribed 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
       /usr/local/etc/openldap/slapd.conf
	      default slapd configuration file
