I have a brand new fresh, minimal installation of CentOS 7 on a VM. Downloaded and installed the Openfire 3.9.3 RPM package. I had to install java and libstdc++.i686 as well, but other than that and openfire nothing else is installed on the system. Install reported success and “service openfire status” reports it is running.
However, I cannot access the admin page to perform the initial setup. Checking “ss -l”, I don’t see anything listening on port 9090.
I found this 7-year old thread https://igniterealtime.jiveon.com/message/157174#157174 with a similar issue, but aside from its age and the fact that these versions are very different, the solution also seemed to just be “wait”. Well I left the server on all night and nothing changed.
