Is there a FAQ?

I am a bit embarrassed to post this but I have been crawling the web site looking for basic information and think I should be finding answers that I am not. Please point me in the right direction.

Questions -

  • Is there any sort of documentation describing the steps to upgrade a Wildfire 2.5.1 installation to 2.6.2? I’'ve stumbled upon a series of sql update scripts in resources/database/upgrade in directories labeled 1 through 8 but have no idea which ones I need to run. Where is that documented?

  • I would like to bind to certain interfaces but not all. I found an article describing how to implement binding to a single interface but wanted to find out how to bind to two specific interfaces (and not a third). Where do I find such information?

  • I am curious about the capability or plans to support running multiple xmpp servers for a large single user namespace. Is there any concept of clustering multiple wildfire servers sharing a common domain and single datastore?

Thanks in advance.

The best resources at this point are the forums and the knowledge base[1]. You can also get the developers attention by attending the weekly developers chat to raise issues you believe are not being heard in the forums.

The first time you run 2.6.2, it will detect the 2.5.1 database and upgrade the DB on the fly.

Not sure.

Jive is working on this issue. It’'s project codename is Pampero. See the Project Pampero[3] section of the forums. Gato posted a recent status report[4] on the project.

Thought I would add this. There is a FAQ, although the others Hrothgar gave are probably better.

Hey g2,

  • I would like to bind to certain interfaces but not

all. I found an article describing how to implement

binding to a single interface but wanted to find out

how to bind to two specific interfaces (and not a

third). Where do I find such information?

The server can be configured to bind to only one address. If no address is specified (in the network.interface[/i] system property) then the server will accept connections on all local addresses. Using DNS SRV records you may redirect all traffic to the target address that you want. This trick may help you in case you have many domains.

Hi Gato,

this does not help one if one has three IP addresses and want to run two Wifi servers and bind one of them to two addresses. And it still s**ks that one can not bind the web admin console to a complete other interface than the xmpp or s2s port.
