3.10 "Home not found"

Excited to see 3.10!

When going to the web set up at “” I’m getting the following error:

“Home not found. Define system property “openfireHome” or create and add the openfire_init.xml file to the classpath”

#I’m not sure if the following helps, but I extracted the openfireHome section to display here.

ps axw | grep openfire | grep openfireHome


This is new to me. Any suggestions?

java -version

java version “1.7.0_79”

OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.5.5) (7u79-2.5.5-0ubuntu0.14.04.2)

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.79-b02, mixed mode)

Anybody, please? This is a month old, and I’m still at a loss? Just upgraded to Java 1.8. No Help

I grepped the openfire folder and the only place I could find that “Home not found…” message is in the following files. But oddly, even if I move those files completely and restart openfire, that message keeps appearing. What’s going on here?

openfire/resources/i18n/openfire_i18n_en.properties and
