I broke access completely to my LDAP after following
the SSL HOWTO (in part because there are 2 sets of
instructions -- one is a Redhat link appearing at the
top of that howto page, which is what I followed and
coincidently broke access with, the other set of
instructions appear on the same page shortly after
that Redhat link and was the correct way I should have
implemented my self-signed certs). I am pretty sure
this has to do with ports since there is some mention
of needing to be at a port above 1024 if installed
root, however I installed and run it as nobody.
Why do you think it has to do with ports? Note that the server can run
as "nobody" and listen to 389 and/or 636, as long as the servers are
_started_ by root (or from init). The server drops privileges after
binding to the ports.
How do I go back in and disable SSL now that I can't
access anything? I can't seem to log in anywhere now
with my directory manager password.
It depends. But you can usually stop the server, edit dse.ldif, set
nsslapd-security: off, save, and start.
Thanks for the assistance.
