Hey everyone,

I just had my server stop responding completely with this error in the admin console:

Error starting the server. Please check the log files for more information.

Server halted

Everything was working fine for the past week or so, and all of a sudden this morning it stopped working. I checked the error log, but it looks similar to what I already see:

Can anyone help me out?

You are using the embedded database?

Use a restore of your database folder to get the database working again.

If you don’t have a backup:

Make a temporary backup of the database folder and edit then openfire.script - line 1183. This line may be corrupted.

Reason may be: no space left on device or OutOfMemoryError during checkpoint of the internal database.

If you are using plugins (like monitoring) you may want to disable them and delete the archived messages or migrate to an external database.

Ok - is there a way I can do that without having access to the admin webpanel? I just get 404 not found when I try to launch it.

You can do it all from the command line or within Windows. The embedded database is just a flat file within the openfire installation directory.

How can you edit this from the command line? I have the same problem and I looked through the script and didn’t see any thing that looked like a memory setting. Please help!

I just had the same error and dummy ME does not have a backup of the .script file.

I try to open it and all I see is a blank screen, Tried several programs , even a free script editor.

Any hope in repairing it?

Is there any way or chance of repairing a corrupt .script file. ??
