I installed the windows version of openfire and it created the tables in mysql db. I then installed the monitoring plugin. There was some error message saying that database schema was not created. I then restarted the openfire server and that error disappeared. I then activated the archiving feature under server -> Archiving. I sent some test conversations.
The montior plug seems to be working . I see the live conversations in the admin console.
Now I am looking for where the conversations are saved. I do not see any new tables in the openfire mysql db.
Seems the conversations are stored as embedded db. Why would this be if openfire was originally installed into mysql? Does not make any sense. If it is embedded then there is no hope of maintaining it.
The monitor plugin seems to be tailored for linux users. I hear these chat tables magically appearing in mysql, but i dont see it on my windows server.
