How to Install a local LDAP¶
sudo apt-get install 389-ds-base
Configure directory server¶
Release 1.3 [old]¶
This is the configuration tool for older releases of 389 directory server. If there is no setup-ds tool in your system you probably have the new release, skip to Release 1.4 instruction bellow.
When requested the server name, answer with the full qualified domain name of the host: hostname.domainname. In the next step you must supply the domain name as base for the configuration. So if your domain name is “foobar.com”, the base will be “dc=foobar,dc=com”.
Release 1.4 [new]¶
From release 1.4 we provide an example configuration file for creating the new directory instance. Review it at t/etc/ds389.conf and use it with dscreate:
sudo dscreate from-file t/etc/ds389.conf
Enable and Start the service¶
sudo systemctl start dirsrv@localhost sudo systemctl enable dirsrv@localhost
Add a LDAP section in the config file¶
The config file usually is /etc/ravada.conf. Add this configuration:
ldap: admin_group: test.admin.group admin_user: dn: cn=Directory Manager password: 12345678 base: 'dc=example,dc=com'
Insert one test user¶
The ravada backend script allows creating users in the LDAP
