No one can log in after server restart?

So I’ve set up the server, created a few test accounts, and everything seemed to be working. Until I restarted the server. After the restart, none of the accounts can log in. I cannot log into the admin panel. Nothing seems to work. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and everything worked again until the server restarted. Does anyone know what is happening? I am using Openfire 3.7.1

You may want to check to see if your MySql service is set to run at boot.


This is because Openfire doesn’t setup the service by default during installation. You will need to set that up on your own. If you read in the documentation section on the site in the installation area, it will tell you how to setup openfire service. You will need to install the service then start it. Once you do that, it will automatically run. I had the same issue when I first installed OpenFire but now have it running properly. You might have to reinstall OpenFire first, then setup the service, then run the setup if installing the service after the initial setup has already been run.

Sounds like Openfire isn’t running if you can’t login to the admin console

ssh to your server,

cd /

./opt/openfire/bin/openfire start
