OpenLDAP on Centos

Post by masipuzo » 2020/07/07 08:05:10

I am new to OpenLDAP and would like to know whether it is possible to install OpenLDAP in a different directory than "/etc"
The problem with /etc is that I can't install it in the original filesystem. This would require a very long explanation but I have to install it on /mnt.
So, I can't touch /usr or /var for this matter.
I don't even know if that is feasible.

Katelyn McKinley looked in the mirror and was surprised that the woman looking back at her looked so fresh and pretty. Katelyn was tired most of the time these days, and taking care of herself was often last on her list. Raising her precocious six year old daughter, Carly and three year old twin sons, Colin and Connor, pretty much drained her of most of her energy. But tonight, the woman in the mirror looked attractive and glowing. She had gained a lot of weight when she was pregnant with the twins, but by the time they were mobile she had lost all of it and then some. At 5'6" and 122 pounds, her figure looked slender and sexy. Tonight was her 32nd birthday and she was having the opportunity to not only go out, but to go out alone with her husband Mike, something that rarely happened anymore. Her friend Becky had volunteered to come over with her four year old son and baby sit, so that Katelyn and Mike could go celebrate the big 3-2.

"You look pretty, Mommy." It was Carly peeking in the doorway. "Can I wear some of your perfume?"

Katelyn sighed, "Yes, Honey if you promise you won't decide it smells yucky and make Miss Becky wash it off."

"Ok," Carly said and came into the room to receive a spritz. "Thanks, Mommy," she said, wrinkling her little freckled nose as she sniffed her wrist. Then she gave Katelyn a big squeeze around her middle and skipped out of the room. ... ent-sites/
Katelyn turned back to the mirror. At 32, she looked at least 5 years younger. Her skin was very fair, and she had a sprinkling of freckles across her nose---just like her daughter. Her hair was dark brown and lustrous, falling in waves to her shoulders, and her eyes were huge and a deep blue. She fumbled with her pierced earrings, almost jabbing one through the not- so -open hole on her earlobe. Getting dressed in the morning was a quick and thoughtless process these days, and Katelyn rarely took time to put on her jewelry. It's not the only thing that doesn't go into a hole easily in me, she thought to herself as she struggled with the stubborn earring. She surprised herself by thinking that---about Mike's erect penis struggling to enter her because she usually wasn't very wet. And that was just when they had sex, which they usually didn't. Katelyn just wasn't in the mood anymore, and Mike was incredibly patient with her, hoping secretly that this was just a temporary phase and that when the kids got a little older he'd have his sexy wife back.

Back in college, when they'd met, Katelyn and Mike couldn't keep their hands off each other. Katelyn would spend the night in Mike's dorm room---even quietly riding his erect penis in the upper bunk while his roommate slept below. And when they had the room to themselves, they would have sex all night and then fall into an exhausted heap in Mike's small bed. Early marriage had followed in almost the same pattern, but once they had children, it all seemed to change.
As Katelyn walked out of her bedroom, she didn't look like a woman who didn't want sex. She wore an extremely tight, little black dress that hugged her 34C breasts sensuously. Katelyn always thought her breasts were too pointy, but tonight they looked just right in the dress with a diamond necklace, a birthday gift from her parents, falling just above the slight cleavage that showed. Her heels clacked on the tile as she walked to the family room to greet her friend.

1. CentOS base repository does provide openldap RPM-packages. If you can't install them, then you probably can't install or update anything, which means that the system is unmaintainable.

2. What are you going to do with openldap? Server?
Red Hat has deprecated (their support for) openldap-server; RHEL 8 does not have one.
There are other LDAP server implementations. If you are new, then you should learn one of those instead.
