I have narrowed the conditions under the server does not start. I can start the server if I only use the ldap protocol. Nevertheless, I compiled with support for ldaps (--with-tls option) I have created a Certificate Authority as well as a certificate for my server using openssl .

  If I attempt to start slapd using a URL with ldaps , it just dies. Any idea where I could look for log messages?

Subject: slapd does not start, where do I find the error?


I got the sources (2.2.8), compiled and installed OpenLDAP in RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 ( 64-bit.) (I also got the sources and compiled  BerkeleyDB 4.6)


Now, I am trying to start the server. I don’t get any error message in the console.

In Ubuntu, the errors would show up in /var/log/syslog


Where could I find what is wrong when I invoke slapd? Where do the errors get logged ?
