Corrupt HSQLDB?

We had a power outage on one of our dev servers. On coming back up, openfire refuses to start. It’s using the internal HSQLDB. The error messages include:

2007.09.04 21:20:05 org.jivesoftware.database.ConnectionPool.<init>(ConnectionPool.jav a:111) Failed to create new connections on startup. Attempt 2 of 3

com.mysql.jdbc.CommunicationsException: Communications link failure due to underlying exception:

  • BEGIN NESTED EXCEPTION **

java.net.SocketException

MESSAGE: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused

Followed by this a little further…

Any idea how to debug this?

Hi,

are you using Linux or Windows?

Is it possible that OPENFIRE_HOME is not found / set correctly and thus Openfire fails to find the database.

You may have a bin/extra/ directory with embedded-db-viewer.sh (or bin\extra\embedded-db-viewer.bat) which should allow to view the internal database.

I don’t think that the database is corrupted. You should have 200 MB free space in the embedded-db directory, as HSQLDB needs space for it’s checkpoint if your openfire.log file is large.
