Move Openfire Server?

Hey guys,

I have an openfire server installed as a test, but want to move it over to a new production server. Is it possible to just do a direct move and keep everyone’s settings (rosters, icons, etc)? The new server will have the same name, just a different machine. What would this entail?



When using external database this is no problem. Just install Openfire, then copy conf/openfire.xml, plugins/*.jar and resources/security/* and start the server. If your database is located on the same machine you obviously have to move it, too.

When using embedded database, probably you can simply copy the complete Openfire directory. But I’m not sure about that, since I have never used embedded database.

Thanks, I’m using a MySQL database so this should work then.
