I'd put out a couple of weeks ago.  Here it is, I'm going to take his advice and I'll let
you know how it goes:

Difference between SSL and TLS very small. When your use SSL your have SSL connection on specific
SSL port, and, after that, use plain HTTP, or POP3, or IMAP4, ... over this tunnel. When you
use TLS, you, use connection to STANDART port for same service, after that, send command STARTTLS,
after that use SSL connection on standart service port.

supports SSL but this message indicates that you have not set the LDAPTrustedCA and LDAPTrustedCAType

But it not my case.
It fine certificate:
$ sudo openssl verify -CAfile /usr/local/etc/ssl/cacert.pem -verbose /usr/local/etc/openldap/ssl/slapd-free2.mow.crt

/usr/local/etc/openldap/ssl/slapd-free2.mow.crt: OK

And, as I write previously, I get error message, when apache started. WITHOUT ldap-connection
(I look tcpdump in this moment)
