I’ll try to get as detailed as I can. Im not a coder or anything so, it might not be as deep as needed.
But I’ll start with the issues in order as 1st mentioned and see where that gets us.
AMD64x2 4200+ AM2, 2GB DDR2 & 20GB Seagate EIDE HHD(what Openfire runs from*)
No other OS’s or virtualizers running
Issue#1- Multiple MUC Services:
As described. The issue here is If I created an additional service for MUC’s aside from the default “conference” one. Everything will run fine for a few days. But later on, the extra chat service I created will disappear. And a few of the rooms that were on it merge with the ones on the conference service. Theres no major tweaks or configs I do to this(or anything*). Most I’ll do is set 2 mods and 3 rooms for it. Each room set to display in list, be moderated and allow users to register to them.
Im not sure exactly what to look for as far as the logs go. They are setup & running. But when I look them over in the admin console. It always looks the same. As if nothing ever happened. Any errors that do pop up seem to keep aiming at some mortbay or jetty mess.
Issue#2- Packet Filter2.0.2 Plugin:
This plugin setsup without any problems. And it will actually operate fine for days on end. Catching a few banned words here n’ there. But as of late, there has been users that have discovered this feature and made it a personal quest to see how “detailed” it was. 1st time was accidental then curiousity. 2nd time was blatant. 3rd time was blatant to show other new users(dont worry, those guys ARE banned*).
I have the filter setup to catch racial slurs & derrogatory comments. Its not too highly detailed but the idea was that we’d add more with time. So, this aroused curiousity and the lousy reason to test and see why some words are blocked but others are not. Even though our ToS says “not to use them anyways”. The plugin was 1st set to allow the packets through but mask them. Then IM the admin including the packet. 2nd setup after the 1st crash was that I then BLOCKED the packets and setup a warning message. I left the notifier on to alert the admin and add the packet. 3rd crash & final crash. I just turned it completely off and gave up.
The crashes are very low key. We never realize they happen until I see no activity in a chat. Nor does anyone respong ti my PM’s or IM’s. I can look and see everyone connected in the console. But its like all activity has frozen. No one mentions being offline. Just the fact that activity stops. So, to correct it. I turn off the filter plugin and reboot the machine. As restarting Openfire does’nt do anything except send you back through the initial setup again. When you surf into the console.
We really wanted that working to help ease the mod’s duties. But, it looks like we’ll be handling things old skool for now^^
