Installation Guide Not Working

  • The Installation Guide as it stands now doesn't work. I'm getting errors about not being able to listen on ipv6 (Which if there is a configuration I'm missing, would be a missing switch in the systemd unit file - bug?)
  • There is no explanation of schemas or indexes and which to enable or leave out.
  • I'm told to configure the /etc/openldap/slapd.conf file and then I'm told that it is deprecated and should be using slapd.d. Thereafter I'm told to edit slapd.conf, delete all files in slapd.d and run slaptest every time I want to make a configuration change. There is no explanation for directly working with slapd.d.
  • The automated setup script fails to create a working ldap installation. Various "No such file or directory" errors throughout the running of the script. Also puts invalid syntax into slapd.conf.

Yes, this page is outdated or poorly written. Following the examples is not working without issues. I'm currently thinking of reorganizing the whole LDAP section. If you were able to figure out the issues, please correct the sections. --T.ask (talk) 11:51, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
