Steps to recreate:
On Ubuntu, download openfire.tar.gz.
Extract to /opt/openfire
Web browser to localhost:9090/
Select embedded database, default authentication, enter email address and password for the “admin” user account.
At this point you are redirected to the login screen. Enter “admin” as username and the password created in step 5.
Result: you are given the message: “Login failed: make sure your username and password are correct and that you’re an admin or moderator.”
I have attempted restarting the server and choosing simple passwords, but I get the same behavior. How can I fix this?
