I have the openfire 3.6.4 for windows installed with the monitor plugin. Archiving is set to record conversations. I see no error message in the openfire start console. Says openfire is running and monitor is working. I can send message between spark clients. When there is a conversation going on I can see it in the openfire admin archiving section. This is used at work and have had a week of conversations going on between 20 people. I go to the archiving page in admin and do a search for all messages and nothing comes up. I search for specific date and nothing. I search for specific username and nothing. I do not see the conversations tables in mysql db that everyone is mentioning.
From what i see the conversations are not stored in any useful format or at all.
