I restarted the server and now I get
Login failed: make sure your username and password are correct and that you’re an admin or moderator.
I know the password is correct and the username is my AD account. Is there something I am missing? I was adding plugins to the plug in directory and then restarted the server. now I get this error.
I ran into this same issue and was not able to log back into the Admin Console.
The only way I was able to resolve it was to edit the openfire.xml file located in the /Openfire/conf directory. I changed the setup flag from ‘True’ to ‘False’ which kicked off the intial setup again upon launching the Admin Console.
I just kept the same exact settings as before, and even used the exact same Admin user from LDAP. Was able to login right after completing the quick setup as I had been doing previously.
I do not know what caused this to occur. I simply restarted the service and was unable to login.
