something really messed up here. I installed OF over a year ago. I used the .tar-ball and every file and every folder belongs to the owner “openfire”. So i started OF running under the user “openfire” rahter than “root” or something else. Everything went just fine. From time to time i updated OF to the newest version but last time i messed up smth. As mentioned before, every file and folder belongs to the user “openfire” which also is used to start the server. Anyway for the last update i used the .tar-ball version again, but i copied all files and folders as “root”. Now some files and folders belongs to the user “openfire” and some to the user “root”. So good so bad. Then, accidentally, i started the server using “root”. That causes no trouble but the trouble starts now. I don’t like to run OF under root, i’d like to run it under “openfire” as i did before. But when i’m now trying to start OF using the user “openfire” the server won’t start right away. He keeps starting with the setup process. I tried to walk through the setup up it repeats. So i’m stuck. OF will only start if i start it as root. I think this is because some files belongs to the user “openfire” and some to “root”.
What can i do to start OF using the user “openfire” again and dont get the setup everytime i try? Simply change the owner of all files and folders from “root” to “openfire”?
What do you think?
