I am thinking of moving my windows OF on to a Linux box. What is the easiest Linux distro to install and update OpenFire assuming that’s all that I ill put on the box? I’m familiar with Ubuntu and Debian, but I’m not averse to something else if it is easier to aautomatically run and update.
There are upsides and downsides to every Linux distribution. Ubuntu is as good as any of them, so go for it as you have some experience with it.
I had full, immediate success with this on Ubuntu server 16.04 :-
sudo apt-get install gdebi
sudo apt-get install gdebi sudo wget http://download.igniterealtime.org/openfire/openfire_4.1.5_all.deb sudo gdebi openfire_4.1.5_all.deb
sudo gdebi openfire_4.1.5_all.deb
Thanks. The whole thing is brilliant
