Openfire 4.1.1 secure port 9091

Hello everybody,

I just installed Openfire and wondering how I can launch admin console with secure port 9091 instead of port 9090

any help, suggestion is much appreciated.


after setting up openfire and generating the certs: You can go into openfire.xml and change admin port 9090 to -1. This will disable port 9090 and only allow https over 9091 for the admin console

hello speedy, good day from Switzerland and many thanks for your help. Will check it out. Cheers

EDIT: I was trying to connect through http:// instead of httpS://. My mistake :slight_smile:

Sorry for reopening this case, but I have exactly followed your steps @speedy, but 9091 does not let me in.


  1. vim /usr/local/etc/openfire/openfire.xml
  2. replaced "9090ยจ with -1
  3. wrote and exit the openfire.xml file (with ESC + wq)
  4. restarted the server with the following command: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/openfire restart
  5. made the conclusion xmpp.[ourDomain].nl:9091 does not work and gives the following error: The compound was reinitialized

openfire.xml contents:
