Openfire 4.30 fails at admin login

Upgrading 4.2.3 to 4.30 - only works (so far) for xmpp clients, but login to web admin is borked, I get the admin creds login page, it then logs in and immediately throw hissy fit

We followed the exact upgrade instructions (as we have done time and time before)

This is the page thats shown

Just stop the service, delete or move C:\Program Files/openfire/plugins/admin/webapp/WEB-INF/lib folder and restart the service.

Greg

same errors here :frowning:

Sorry, I should have made it clear this is on linux.

I;m also hesitant to delete something thats pre-installed on default unless a developer says its safe to do.

It’s in the same place on Linux besides the Program files. Openfire folder itself can be either in /opt or /usr or other places depending on the distribution and version of it. @gdt is one of the recent contributors to the code, so is a developer. You can follow his advice. This lib folder is not needed anymore in 4.3.0 and usually should be removed during the upgrade, but sometimes it stays in place and causes problems.

Ahh fair enough, ok, stopped, removed, restarted, nope still errors as above

Could you then check if all the libs in /openfire/lib are the same as in this list:

I think thats all, but might have missed some, I seem to have extra files in there.

I dont use JDK, I use the JRE version jre1.8.0_191 its also installed into /opt and functioning correctly.

I am using the tar.gz version of openfire as we use slackware, so upgrade instructions I follow are as for same

also using 5.5.62-MariaDB, but I doubt that has anything to do with it, since xmpp clients can connect and use the system.

You have only 10 files? That’s strange. Maybe you haven’t copied everything when upgrading. Download tar.gz again and copy the rest of the files.

nonono, if you look at the bcp* h* you wil see I have files you did not show

I see. You may try to remove those superfluous files. Not that this will change something probably, but to be sure this is not the cause.

what has worked was, deleting the entire openfire 4.30 “upgrade”
4.2.3 of course still backed up, untarred the 4.30 as new install,
then copied over the conf, plugins (except admin), and the resources security, now able to login via web…

Thanks heaps for you help wroot and others who offered suggestions.

however :slight_smile: yes you knew there would be a however didnt you…
the bookmarks page is now blank, removing that plugin, returning to main exception errors again cant find plugin bookmarks sigh re-installed plugin, web interface happy again except bookmarks page remains blank… No big deal for us, just a note for devs, will keep an eye out for any update on it, logs dont record anything as to why.

Funny this… logs show -
13:07:28.804 [pool-5-thread-1] INFO org.jivesoftware.openfire.container.PluginManager - Successfully unloaded plugin ‘bookmarks’.
*No not really it still thought it should be there)

13:07:56.248 [pool-39-thread-1] INFO org.jivesoftware.openfire.container.PluginManager - Successfully loaded plugin ‘bookmarks’.

Summary: updating using tar.gz method is broken, something needs to be deleted that isnt, and bookmarks plugin is upset. I’m happy now we can manage users and 99% of teh server.

Other general info is:
Loading class com.mysql.jdbc.Driver'. This is deprecated. The new driver class iscom.mysql.cj.jdbc.Driver’.

As it seems - upgrade is harmful. When I upgraded on Mac, 4.3.0 wiped all 4.2.3’s data and version still showed 4.2.3 until I made clean reinstall of OF & Java. But now all my plugins are working fine

Bookmarks plugins has been updated to 1.0.2 yesterday, you can try updating it. This version has fixed the blank window issue.

When i was using tar.gz many years ago i had a procedure to copy files that i need (conf, database, /resources/security, maybe logs), then wipe the folder, extract tar.gz into same place, copy back my saved files). Using installers usually solves the task of removing not needed old files for you (sometimes it fails still). If you use simple archive, then you should keep your installation clean manually.

4.3.0 has a LOT of changes, so some things can break. As i personally use Openfire on Windows i have tested its beta on Windows, reported a few issues, which have been fixed before releasing a final version. Nobody on the team uses Macs. There is a test box with macOS, but you can’t test everything blindly if you are not really used to that OS. Nobody else reported problems on macOS with beta (aside of a known problem with PrefPane).

Maybe the devs should amend the website to say this, I;ve had no problems with upgrades - until now, and I think I’ll be doing this for further upgrades in hte future as well.

Thanks for info about bookmarks - I see a few of them have been updated now (after manually running update now) and can confirm the issue resolved :slight_smile:

Good point. I have created a ticket and here are the changes https://github.com/igniterealtime/Openfire/pull/1268/files

On Mac Bookmarks also fixed at last
