OpenFire version 4.0.2
This link is quite sufficient Openfire: Custom Database Integration Guide quite sufficient but the exact problem
-> Its not clear whether to add the properties in the database or in the conf/openfire .xml file.
What is the correct process, I have tried with inserting properties in to ofProperty table and it did not work ?
I have tried adding properties from admin gui (which is time taking process, if you want to re install it again and again ) ,
-> I can authenticate users from external database.
but the problem is I cannot log in to admin console any more
Do any one have any good solution for this ?

Forgive me if I am incorrect, but I had a similar issue logging into the admin console after making a change to the server.
I had to edit conf/openfire.xml and add the following within the tags:
We are using AD authentication and I was able to log in fine with my AD admin user.
Unfortunately I cannot answer your question about Custom Database Integration.

What is your tag setting in openfire.xml?
I’m on red hat and I am running openfire as a non-privileged user. I had an issue in the script /etc/init.d/openfire where openfire was launching as the ‘daemon’ user. Because of this, my openfire.xml file was not updated and kept taking me through the initial setup/installation every openfire restart.
Are you having the same problem?

Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft’s take on LDAP. Unfortunately I cannot answer your authentication problem, I was hoping to be able to help with your setup issue.
