Openfire 3.7.1 stuck in Setup Loop


OS: Debian 6

JRE: Sun Java6

Openfire: 3.7.1

I was using an embedded-db based setup which i decided to move to external db (MySQL).

So i followed instructions from - http://www.igniterealtime.org/builds/openfire/docs/latest/documentation/database .html#mysql

I changed bind to the Servers IP address in my.cnf and granted all rights to the user on the database.

I then blanked the value of openfire.xml and accessed the web interface to run setup again.

i went through the setup and selected MySQL, gave all credentials(user:root) and the db name along with the server’s IP address. Setup completed *successfully. *I then set the value of to true. When i tried accessing the servers web interface i get the Setup screen again.

I’ve verifed that the admin user got created in mysql, I have given all permissions i could think of.

What am i missing here?
