ApacheDS v2.0 Basic User’s Guide
This guide is primarily for people new to ApacheDS 2.0. If you plan to use the server as is, maybe even for your first LDAP experience, you’ll (hopefully) find all information necessary to do so. Only basic configuration tasks are covered. Learn more about the options you have (and many other things) in the ApacheDS v2.0 Advanced User’s Guide.
LDAP is a complex set of technology, Apache Directory Server is offering more than just LDAP, so it’s good to get a quick grip on the server.
