Stopping OpenLDAP

This is most dumb but useful post. How to turn off slapd.

You know how to start the slapd:

 #/usr/local/libexec/slapd  [-option..]

however, pkill slapd is not the correct way to turn off slapd.

Here's how you turn it off:

 #kill -INT `cat /usr/local/var/`  

This will send appropriate signal to slapd process, and will store any cached data and close gracefully.
