BaseDN is empty

Hi All

Digging into linux (I like) I have a problem:
I tried to alter the slapd.conf file and add more ip's that could access, at least that was the idea. However I got error messages when restarting lapd - So I took the backup file and renamed it to slapd.conf, after deleting my experiment. But now I cant access localhost, I get BaseDn is empty.
-- Did I use a wrong editor? (I got odd error messages saying a line had error, and the line showed something else than the offending command (by).
I was trying to add the last line of this:
# Define global ACLs to disable default read access.
access to *
by peername="ip=127\.0\..*\..*" read
by peername="ip=192\.168\.0\.100" read

-- Did the errors ruin my ldap?

I know this isnt much to go by, but i appreciate any help?

Unlikely to be this perhaps but did you alter ownership or permissions of the file when you origionally backed it up. Remote possibility this might be the problem.

Yes, it might have happened, I will look out for that in the future - Since the post I went thru a reinstall.
