--- Comment #2 from Stephane Chazelas <> ---
Confirmed with apache 2.22 and apr-util 1.3.12 (from ubuntu 12.04). ldapi://
URLs don't work. Worse, if you enter ldapi:///, it is (silently) treated as
ldap://localhost:389, that is, the connection is still done over TCP to

You can't use "EXTERNAL" type authentication (whereby the ldap server can
verify the user name that contacts it from the unix domain socket).

To verify, enter a ldapi://%2fvar%2frun%2fslapd%2dldapi/... URL and see the
wrong debug output as in Nikos' case, or enter ldapi:/// and see (with a
network capture or looking at netstat) that it's doing a TCP connection to port
389. You could also disable TCP in slapd to verify that it stops working.
