Also the second part has been completely revisited, to be more concise and more uniform to the original text.
Links to specific versions of the OS are still present. Please, refer to this previous comment for more details. How to fix this?

So, you're saying the we need testers for this configuration before we put it in the handbook as official instructions?

Applied all the modifications suggested by @bcr . Thank you!
The line-breaking were a first attempt to handle too-long lines, your solution is far better. A couple of comments:

Is it planned to address the client side (e.g., nss-pam-ldapd) or just the server?

Correction of the first part. The original text has been restored till the slapd.ldif example. The first section of slapd.ldif configuration has been significantly shortened, and many not necessary flaws have been deleted. If this is ok, the remainder can be modified following the same method.
The whole chapter


is also attached.

  • The old Berkeley DB is deprecated and the file
DB_CONFIG.example

is no more present in the package. The related lines in the guide have been removed. The new example uses an MDB database.
(The error I was having during configuration was about another issue: a clean installation of FreeBSD, openldap-server and MDB perfectly works without `DB_CONFIG.example')

  • Links have been updated about packages and ports. A link to this article is used, which seems very straightforward with respect to the corresponding handbook page.
  • Parts about Certificates have all been revisited, being now more similar to the old Tom Rhodes text; with respect to the previous diff, they have been shrunk as much as possible, according to @remko suggestions. A separated space, also as much concise as possible, has been placed to provide basic information to the user as regards the Certificates creation.

In general, we are getting better and better. Please keep up with that, it is much appreciated!

I do think we need to make the writing a bit more formal. Previous writing was always more formal (not restricted/limited to the ldap section) which makes the handbook more coherent. I'll graw the raw diff and look into that a bit more because that might be easier to read(for me). Phabricator mixes up a bit of the comments and rewrites and places them on the wrong lines for me. I'll get back to you as soon as time permits (hopefully this weekend or early next week).

@remko Thank you for your suggestions.
This is a new diff, which is now based on the last revision of the chapter (50922). This even includes some final modifications I had made before uploading the diff in the bug report, where I had already fixed some typos/errors/bad phrases.
I followed all your advices, except two:
