Sometimes LDAP server shutdown unexpectedly and after restart ldap reported the error:
DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
and OpenLDAP can't start.

The recovery procedure is as follows:
  1. Run recovery:
    slapd_db_recover -v -h /var/lib/ldap
  2. Change ownership of the ldap directory back to ldap:
    chown ldap:ldap -R
  3. Start LDAP server and check its status:
    service ldap start
    service ldap status
