You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: phpldapadmin slapd

After an upgrade from 9.04 Server to 9.10 Server, after login into
phpldapadmin (with a normal user and also with the admin user) we got
the error message :

"Our attempts to find your SCHEMA for "attributetypes" have FAILED"

Like it is mentioned on the phpldapadmin's FAQ we have to allow
anonymous acess to the schemas.

We can do this by :

1. Add the ACL rule in the frontendDB
"olcDatabase={-1}frontend,cn=config" :

We can edit the file "olcDatabase={-1}frontend.ldif" located in "/etc/ldap/slapd.d/cn=config" and add the line "olcAccess: {1}to dn.base="cn=subschema" by * read" just after
"olcAccess: {0}to * by dn.exact=cn=localroot,cn=config manage by * break"

2. Restart openldap : "sudo /etc/init.d/slapd restart"

Note that after the upgrade I got the version 2.4.18-0ubuntu1 of
OpenLDAP server.

I think it's a bug because :
1. before the upgrade everthing was working fine and
2. we have to manualy add the rule (it's not so easy)
