Creating users, MUCs, etc

Hi all,

I’m working on an XMPP based website that is going to use a combination of the JAXL PHP library and openfire to provide real time communitcation. After setting up my openfire server, I see that it’s mysql based. Can I manually add users, MUCs, etc to the openfire server via PHP on my website? I seem to remember reading somewhere that accessing the openfire database externally is frowned upon, but I don’t really see any other solution.

Thanks in advance,



The solution is to use the plugins and their exposed HTTP apis to manage users. Everything else can be done by making a xmpp connection from your PHP code and executing adhoc or plain XEP style commands to the server.
