I had the same issue, little know and it seems undocumented bug. Try rebooting the server after the you do the install. Worked for me.

You can do this using the Packet Filter Plugin, which is available by default in the Plugins section of the OpenFire admin. Using this plugin you can block messages between users of the Staff group from chatting with or seeing each other. I'd post a screen shot and detailed instructions, but it seems like Ignite Realtime's site is down at the moment. I'll ...

I had to manually set the password, the setup page didn't save it. Restarting the server didn't help. If you are using the embedded db on Windows, this will be in embedded-db/openfire.script: INSERT INTO OFUSER VALUES('admin',NULL, ... Change the NULL to your password. Then restart your OpenFire server.

I would use at least an m1.small or better an m1.large Instance. The micro-instance really is for development only, because the 613MB may soon not be enough even with zero users. Besides that, you will most likely see a lot of CPU steal time and your Server will not react some time after you had a small cpu peak. That is very annoying. I would try to get ...

Long story short: Got a look at another (working) installation elsewhere. Turns out there is a value called <setup> that resides in the file openfire.xml of a working installation as follows: ...(XML snipped) <minConnections>5</minConnections> <maxConnections>25</maxConnections> ...

AWS will work for what you intend without any problem, things to be aware though of an EC2 implementation You'll lose CPU cycles when the underlying node is under high load, be ready for your machines to sometimes not deliver enough CPU juice Disk I/O will be a bit slower than a regular machine Apart from that Openfire does have a clustering solution, ...

Beejive is quite awesome, and in open beta for Windows Mobile. http://www.beejive.com/winmo/

Sounds like your Java VM isn't installed. OpenFire is Java-based, so no Java, no OpenFire. If it is installed, then link your java executable via softlink to that location, i.e.: ln -s /path/to/binary/of/java /opt/openfire/jre/bin/java

Do you have shell access to the server? As silly as it sounds, openfire likes to be restarted once in a while. For Linux: service openfire restart or /etc/init.d/openfire restart For Windows: Go into services.msc and restart OpenFire services. Some report that a full server reboot works better.

In your openfire directory, if you edit the conf/openfire.xml file and change the value in the <setup> tags (usually at the bottom of the page), from true to false, it will force you to go through the installation process again. Good for resetting your admin password if you forgot it. If you want to get rid of the plugins loaded, remove things from ...

On your new OpenFire server where you know the admin password, use MySQL to do your SELECT query and see its hashed password (I believe its the encryptedPassword column, been awhile since I had OpenFire set up). Copy that entire hashed password to your clipboard, then flip over to the old OpenFire server's MySQL DB and do an: UPDATE ofUser SET ...

Don't use micro instances for production due to their unpredictable CPU throttle. It is more cost effective to run everything at single instance, but if you are planning to grow and scale it is better to design and develop your application in several instances.

It says Connection refused in the first log. Try telnetting from your Openfire machine to the SQL server port and see if you can open a connection. If not then you might want to check the firewall rules and allow incoming connections. The second log is merely telling you that the connection string is invalid, and it doesn't know where or how to connect.

IIRC you simply don't configure the features you do not want - I believe it just configures itself to deliver local services by default.

some promising flags here, specifically xmpp.server.outgoing.threads and xmpp.server.processing.threads. The default sets the number of threads to the number of processors in the machine.

The issue here isn't Pidgin or OpenLDAP - it's Openfire (which I'm inferring you're using based on your tags). It doesn't support making changes to external LDAP users in any way; direct password changes only work for locally defined users. See here: Openfire treats the LDAP directory as read-only.

I restart openfire nightly with a cron, so you should also be able to use this: sudo -u other_username /home/openfire/bin/openfire start

Is your SQL server configured to accept network connections? Or, is it on a non-standard port (1433 is default)? Or, is there a host-based firewall enabled on the server? From that error message, it appears that the OpenFire server could resolve the name, but the attempt at connection was actively refused. OpenFire takes a jdbc connection string, so it's ...

This is kind of a lame way to do it, but if you're having problems finding the file when it's offline (which I can't explain): You can take a backup of a live hsqldb as long as a checkpoint has not occurred during the backup. A checkpoint will occur every time the log file fills up. There is a setting in the embedded-db's properties file: ...

Did you figure this out? I notice in my new install of openfire (windows service, using the build in hsqldb.) That when I log into the admin panel is shows what users are online, but spark shows users as offline. We can still chat with each other, but have no indication of who is online. A work around is to have the users log off and log back in and re-add ...

Your best bet is to use the Global Catalog (ports 3268/9). According to MS: "Because the global catalog is the forestwide location of the membership of all universal groups, access to a global catalog server is a requirement for authentication in a multidomain forest." ...

We install and deploy OpenFire on Ubuntu fairly regularly. Here is a PARTIAL quick cut/paste from our internal company Wiki. We also pre-install webmin and/or virtualmin on some servers just to make things easier later on: Pre Install sudo -s apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade mkdir /home/kpwadmin/openfire-install mkdir ...

Using Group Policy But just to be sure, you want to deploy a chat client to servers???

Edit conf/openfire.xml to use a port on a host or IP other than localhost. 1st result for Google: openfire conf.

I've done this before with a star cert, and it was horribly painful. If I recall correctly, I had to manually import it into the Java keystore using the java certificate tools and add my CA cert in the same way. I believe the correct certificate format is PEM for this.

I believe you will find that the JVM won't start if you set the memory too high on your system (something like "Could not reserve enough space for object heap") How many users are you planning to have? If it's just a few, openfire should run alright with 128MB or so. If you are planning to have more than a dozen active at any one time, you really should ...

Do not allocate so much as to go into swap. Allocate enough so that the application does not run out of memory. Unless you have lots of activity, further tuning probably won't be very relevant. Other than that, you will have to strike a balance between devoting memory to Java (I believe the default garbage collector is the nonincremental one, so more memory ...

If you use the debug window to take a peek at what Pidgin is requesting, it doesn't seem to include the logged in time. I would assume due to the open nature of the XMPP protocol such a request is possible. Example: (10:38:07) jabber: Sending (ssl): <iq type='get' id='purple36ba35f' to='XXX'><vCard xmlns='vcard-temp'/></iq> (10:38:07) ...
