Raised here and here among other places, this bug makes the product unusable by preventing admin console login after the initial setup.
After completing setup and visiting the admin console you should be able to log in with the details entered during setp.
Upon entering those details on the admin console login page you get the following error:
“Login failed: make sure your username and password are correct and that you’re an admin or moderator.”
I get this error in Windows 7 using either the embedded database or MySQL. It also occurs in Ubuntu, among others.
Various workarounds have been suggested, such as restarting the server at the OS level, re-running setup, editing configuration file and tables manually, none of which are working for me at the moment.
I read on the issue tracker that bugs should be reported via this forum, but it’s not clear whether Openfire is under active development. Fingers crossed.
