Openfire 3.8.2 Administration Console not working after restart

Upon rebooting I am unable to log into the Administration console using the admin account. After reading several of the other boards related to the issue in prior versions I have tried the following to no avail.

Restarted the server

Changed the true to False and walked back through the set up process.

Rebooted again

Force the password to change to plain text through MySQL and attempted login to no avail.

I know I am using the correct password becasue before the this issue i signed in and connected several times successfully. I have also set up several users and have been testing this successfully for the last month and i really don’t want to wipe out and start over. Does anyone have any other ideas?

Server setup info:

Server OS – Windows Server 2008 R2

Webserver – Apache

Database – MySQL


Hello Jonathan ,

Did not you do the integration with AD ?
If you did not, you have the backup of mysql ?

Have you thought about migrating users from one database to another on a new installation ?
