I have just installed a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.10 Server and would like to setup an LDAP server. Can someone please assist me to what I need to install prior to slapd and ldap-utils. The server is a private server and does not require a domain name for the internet.

I am using phpldapadmin and can login with with cn=admin,dc=nodomain but then on the left side it says:

Logged in as:

        This base entry does not exist.Create it?

I click on create and nothing happens.

you can follow this guide from the ubuntu server team :

This server guide is only working if you have a domain like example.com in your /etc/hosts defined. It must be like this during installation: hostname.example.com hostname.

Since I only have a local installation without a domain name this example.com DN is not created and I have the same problem as David.
