Admin console blank!

Just installed Openfire 3.6.0 on my Internet server, but when I try to launch the Admin Console, the page is blank. It does not load the console interface.

The log file says that the “Admin Console is listening at”.

Any ideas?


Welcome to Openfire! Lets start off with some basic questions. Are you trying to access the webpage from a browser running on the same server? If you are accessing it over the network, do you have a firewall blocking your access? Are you sure that openfire is running on the server? Do you see any other messages in any of the log files?


Yes, I am remoted in on the server when trying to access the Admin Console.

There is nothing in the error log, debug log or warn log.

The Openfire executable window opens and displays the version, date and the console is listening at…, but when I press the LAUNCH ADMIN button, the webpage that opens is blank.

I’m having the same problem.

Installed version 3.6.0 with no errors. It runs fine reporting:

Openfire 3.6.0 [Sep 25, 2008 5:04:51 PM]

Admin console listening at

Admin website opens a blank white window…

I’m logged in as admin on the server box itself.

Running Windows Server 2003 Std Edition w/ SP2

IIS is installed and running

Firewall is not turned on

Any ideas out there?

When Launching from the Openfire control panel “Launch Admin” button, the URL is incorrect: is incorrect

You need to type in the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). If you are running the console from the same machine OpenFire is installed on (which would be the case if you used the “Launch Admin” button, you need to use http://localhost:9090/index.html
