Installing openfire on localhost [problem]

Hi !

I was going to test openfire in ubuntu linux on VM worksattion

the installation proccess is quite easy but after the installtion has been completed

i wasn’t able to log in administrartion console

I am using MYSQL 5

username : admin@example.com

password: admin

and io got this error :Login failed: make sure your username and password are correct and that you’re an admin or moderator.

the databsae has been created right

i had search for any tips on this site , chaning the username and many others

none of them was helpfull

I had attached my openfire.xml in case it would help.

any ideas ???

openfire.xml (1781 Bytes)


did you restart Openfire after the installation?


PS: There are important announcements on http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/index.jspa which seems to be missed by a lot of new users.

Hi !

I am sorry

I had already installed it in windows xp although I had no experience with windows server

sorry but did you met all the requirements , make sure you don’t deny port 9090 and restart the service

FYI the openfire.xml could be found in "C:\Program Files\Openfire\conf "


its working now … Thank you very much…
