Older versions of Openfire

Hi Guys

I’m sure this has been asked before, but I have been unable to locate the older version of Open / Wildfire - I’m testing a new server running Centos as I want to move the service from an old NT4 server.

I have the RPM for 3.3.3 but would like to get the RPM’s for the versions from 3.1.1

Thanks in advance.

I wouldn’t know where to get the pre-build packages either, but as an alternative, you could check out the old code from SVN.

Most versions are tagged - if you check out that tag, instead of trunk, you’ll get the source that was used to compile that particular version.

You’d probably run an SVN command like this to get the source you’re looking for:

svn co http://svn.igniterealtime.org/svn/repos/openfire/tags/openfire_3_3_1  openfire

You will need to build the code yourself. There’s documentation on how to do that available here: http://www.igniterealtime.org/builds/openfire/docs/latest/documentation/source-b uild.html

In the past you only needed to change the numbers in the URL such as:

http://www.igniterealtime.org/downloads/download-landing.jsp?file=openfire/openf ire-3.3.3-1.i386.rpm

becomes

http://www.igniterealtime.org/downloads/download-landing.jsp?file=openfire/openf ire-3.3.1-1.i386.rpm

Thanks guys - I tried using the above URL and it didn’t work saying server not available. Any further ideas ?

I have this on my list to discuss at communit chat this week. The site could use a true archive of previous versions, for those of us that do not jump on the upgrade band wagon with our production servers.

Sounds like the server might have been having some issues. I just tried it and it worked fine.

Cheers,

Still the same, though I am going through a proxy. In addition, I think 3.1.1 was also Wildfire prior ot the name change, so maybe the URL needs amending.
