- I see it logs jabber conversations in xml in /opt/openfire/logs/, is there a way to have it just log in plain text, or is there a plugin to read that better?
There used to be a plugin that was able to read the XML file but I’m not sure if that plugin is still being maintained (i.e. I don’t think so). I’m not trying to sell you anything but if you need a more advanced conversation archiving then you may want to give a try to the Enterprise edition.
- Is there a way to automatically create everyone’s buddy list for them every day or something with all the users on the jabber server and what group they are in? This is an internal jabber server and will only have internal contacts.
Have you checked out the shared groups feature? You can pre-populate users rosters from the server. Just create the groups that you want and configure them to be visible to 1) everyone, 2) just group members or 3) group members and other groups. You may even combine this feature with the registration plugin that automatically adds newly created users to a group.
