HTTP File Upload XEP-0363 Support?

Does openfire support HTTP File Upload XEP-0363?

If so how can i enable it?

Openfire does not directly support xep363, but you could use the GitHub - siacs/HttpUploadComponent together with Openfire.

Ok I will look into using that. I asked this because Monal IM just released version 2.9 which supports sending images in conversations and I wanted to try it. Is there any chance openfire will support xep363 nativity?

Fixed it Default shared secret had a space in it and had to use a DDNS

Hi, I am having issues with httpUploadComponent config file

  • Is the component_jid the address of the openfire server? e.g. server ip is

  • What password is component_secret? the same as the openfire server?

  • What port is component_port? openfire - External Component Settings 5275?

  • What port for http_port? 8080 is default but is taken 8081 ok?


component_secret: mysecret

component_port: 5275

storage_path : /media/httpUploads



max_file_size: 20971520 #20MiB

Hello, I have the same need for Movim. The tool need “XEP-0363: HTTP File Upload” for file transfert. HttpUploadComponent is is no longer maintained. It would be nice to have it directly into Openfire as Prosody and Ejabberd does. Regards

I love to use Openfire as my XMPP Server and the only thing i miss is the XEP-363 HTTP File Upload Component to get filetransfer in MUC´S working, because that´s one of the most argument against xmpp insde my private environment.

Please can somebody tell me when openfire will implement this module?

I doubt that you will get an ETA for features in Openfire unless someones is actually working on it. Which is not the case for file upload AFAIK. I suggest considering switching to prosody or ejabberd.

There is now a HTTP File Upload Plugin for Openfire.
