First you dont change any password in mysql (Ofuser) it will not work , now you need to restore your mysql database from backup in mysql command is below :

Example if you have to mysql backup than run below command :

/etc/iniit.d/openfire stop

#mysql -u root -p -h localhost databasename < mysqlbackup.sql

/etc/init.d/openfire start

Hello ,

I have no backup database before upgrade. This is my false . After upgrade i create backup mysql . Could you give me any other advice place . Thanks for your reply .
