int ldb_connect ( struct ldb_context *  ldb,
const char *  url,
unsigned int  flags,
const char *  options[] 

Connect to a database.

This is typically called soon after ldb_init(), and is required prior to any search or database modification operations.

The URL can be one of the following forms:

  • tdb://path
  • ldapi://path
  • ldap://host
  • sqlite://path

ldb the context associated with the database (from ldb_init())
url the URL of the database to connect to, as noted above
flags a combination of LDB_FLG_* to modify the connection behaviour
options backend specific options - passed uninterpreted to the backend
result code (LDB_SUCCESS on success, or a failure code)
It is an error to connect to a database that does not exist in readonly mode (that is, with LDB_FLG_RDONLY). However in read-write mode, the database will be created if it does not exist.
