A great book about installing and administering Openfire has been released: Openfire Administration, by Mayank Sharma (a contributing editor at Linux.com). Some of the topics covered:
- Installing Openfire
- Administration of server settings and users
- Integration with Active Directory and LDAP
- Tuning Openfire for large numbers of users and high performance
- Enterprise features like logging and auditing
- Much more…
So far, I’ve only just started reading through the book in detail. The writing seems to be clear and detailed, while keeping a light-hearted tone. I also love the fact that the author includes lots of pictures – it makes understanding some of the administration tasks much simpler.
We’re thrilled to see the first book about an Igniterealtime Open Source project. If you get a chance to check it out, please let us know what you think.
