I'm trying to add an ACL to my DIT and I get the following:

Enter LDAP Password: 
modifying entry "olcDatabase={0}bdb,cn=config"
ldap_modify: No such object (32)
        matched DN: cn=config

This is the content of the acl.ldif file:

dn: olcDatabase={0}bdb,cn=config
changetype: modify
add: olcAccess
olcAccess: to attrs=userPassword by dn="cn=Manager,dc=site,dc=com" write by anonymous auth by self write by * none
olcAccess: to dn.base="" by * read
olcAccess: to * by dn="cn=Manager,dc=site,dc=com" write by * read

And what ldap command are you using. Looks like you're not binding the cn=config database. – Stéphane Chazelas Jan 24 '13 at 19:31
