How to install Openfire on web hosting

Hi everyone!

I’m newbie here. I hope someone can help me.

I need to install openfire on web hosting.

My server setup:

CentOS Linux 7 64 bit


PHP 5.5.31

Which versione should I choose?

openfire-4.1.4-1.x86_64.rpm RPM (64bit JRE bundled) for Red Hat Linux and variants ?

Do I have to install it in a dedicated folder on my webspace?

Thanks to everyone in advance!


In general, you need SSH console access to your web host so to install openfire. If you have that, you can use the bundled JRE version RPM, or install your own JRE via yum and use the noarch version (recommended).
