|Work in progress|
Unfortunately the Basic User's Guide for ApacheDS 1.5 is not finished yet. We have started to move and revise the content, things you find here are work in progress but should be valid for ApacheDS 1.5.5. In the meantime you can have a look at the ApacheDS 1.0 Basic User's Guide, which is currently more complete.
Getting started. Learn how to download and install ApacheDS 1.5 on different platforms, connect to it with various clients (graphical tools among others), manipulate the data within your directory and integrate ApacheDS with other software. The same sample data, provided as a download, is used through the whole guide.
This guide is primarily for people new to ApacheDS. 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 v1.5 Advanced User's Guide.
We are quite interested to improve the content of this guide. Feel free to provide us feedback:
