Quick Start - More On Installing
For users of Symas’s older OpenLDAP 2.4 “Symas OpenLDAP Gold”
packages, the strategy for installing and maintaining OpenLDAP 2.5+ is
different. And simpler. Instead of going to the Symas Download Portal
and downloading a package, now you register Symas’s Public Repository
with your package manager (
apt, etc.). Then you install it exactly
like any other package in your server stack. And update it when you
update the rest of the server’s stack.
There are some minor considerations which are documented on the Symas repository. But OpenLDAP 2.5+ is completely binary (on-“disk”, in-memory, over the wire) so upgrading is just as easy to 2.5+ as to 2.4.x.
