Installing Openfire on Debian Wheezy

I’m having quite the bear of a time getting Openfire installed on my system running Debian Wheezy (7.0). It appears that the install runs incredibly quickly, and exhibits a lot of the same symptoms as this post: http://community.igniterealtime.org/message/222539#222539

My concern, though, is that sun-java5-jre and sun-java6-jre have been removed from the Debian repository for this version, and I’m unable to get this software to run as a result.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.


Take a look at this solution:

Unable to install Openfire 3.7.1


The installation procedure although decribed for Ubuntu is a generic installation procedure for all Linux.
