H1: Backends
Backends do the actual work of storing or retrieving data in response
to LDAP requests. Backends may be compiled statically into {{slapd}},
or when module support is enabled, they may be dynamically loaded.
If your installation uses dynamic modules, you may need to add the
relevant {{moduleload}} directives to the examples that follow. The
name of the module for a backend is usually of the form:
> back_<backend name>.la
So for example, if you need to load the {{hdb}} backend, you would configure
> moduleload

You'll notice that when compared to examples below, there is no:

directive. This is because {{back_ldif}} is always built in by default as it is
used by {{slapd-config(5)}}, which again is built in by default.
If we add the {{dcObject}} for {{dc=suretecsystems,dc=com}}, you can see how this
is added behind the scenes on the file system:

This has to be one of the shortest configurations you'll ever do. In order to
test this, your {{F: slapd.conf}} file would look like:

> database null

The first two directives are only applicable if you've enabled module support and
haven't "built-in" {{slapd-null(5)}} support (why would you?).
{{bind on}} means:
{{"Allow binds as any DN in this backend's suffix, with any password. The default is "off"."}}
