Hello! I’m using Openfire 3.7.1 on Debian 6 32-bit; configured with MySQL and had it running for quite some time.
About a week ago my vserver rebooted unexpectedly (still analyzing that) and everything but openfire went back up.
Since then I have not been able to start openfire again successfully. The configuration is unchanged and mysql is running and also being used successfully by other services.
When I try to start openfire it either doesn’t seem to do anything (no java process at all, but pidfile created), or the process is running (java with the expected options) and no ports are opened at all and sometimes some or all ports are being opened, looking like a successful start. However, you might be able to login to the admin webpage or not, connect successfully with a jabber client or not and it’s highly unstable mostly crashing after serving one connection.
To make matters worse, mostly there is nothing being logged at all!
The config looks ok, the database is okay too, I’ve reinstalled the package anyway without any change.
Has anyone encountered this or can give me a hint where to look?
Thanks in advance!
