How can i setup OpenFire in Ubuntu 7.10

Hi, I have an Ubuntu 7.10 Server, how can I setup OpenFire??


First of all, you must install JRE.

Then you can simply download tarball (not deb, it doesn’t work correctly in ubuntu) and follow instructions in Installation Manual.

ok. THX, I have setup the JRE, I Have downloaded the tarball, my question is, “How can I open the Tarball?”


Uh, by using tar.

Copy the tarball to whatever directory you want to run Openfire from and then do:

tar -zxvf openfire-3.5.0.tar.gz

(if you’re not root you’ll likely have to do the copy of the tarball and the extraction using ‘sudo’)
