I just ran across openfire today, it looks great, and is exactly what I was looking for, I am very excited to use it. I have been struggling all day, trying to get 3.6.4 to work, but keep getting this message:
Login failed: make sure your username and password are correct and that you’re an admin or moderator.
I have tried all the various fixes I have found in the forums, including adding authorized users in the conf file, restarting openfire multiple times, etc, to no avail. Then I ran across the update, from Sept 2009 mind you, that says its a known bug and will be fixed in the next release. I was just about ready to give up, when I noticed the beta for 3.7 show up, which wasn’t there a couple hours ago. So I’m thinking about my good fortune, uninstall every remnant of 3.6.4, reboot my server, install 3.7 and it’s the exact same message.
Obviously, people are able to get it working, can someone please advise?
I am running a CentOS 5.4 server with very little else on it. Using the embedded db, trying to keep it as simple as possible. This really is maddening…
