Chat History location

This is Ravi,

I have recently installed opnefire3.7.1, I am getting few issues.

  1. Where does users chat history stores?

I have enabled the message audit policy.

Using SPARK on client side.

Spark is saving chat history on a user’s computer (C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Spark\user\user@server\transcripts - xml type files).

Message audit policy will also store chat history on the server’s side (C:\Program Files\Openfire\logs). It is also in xml format and hardly readable without some special parsing.

You can also install Monitoring Service plugin, which will save all chat history into database. But this plugin is knows to have issues and your database will grow huge fast.
