Openfire Auto start on Reboot

I’m using Windows Server 2003. Does anybody know how to make openfire start up automatically upon reboot? I think, for windows, that it is something like copying shortcuts into the startup folder? If so, do i copy the exe itself or make a shortcut to it in the folder? Also, exactly what files need to be copeied or shortcutted? Is there two or three?

I think what you want to do is run openfire as a service.

Anyways, this is taken from the installation guide.

locate openfire-service.exe

It should be \program files\openfire\bin\

run

  • openfire-service /install – installs the service.

Doesn’t it run as a service anyway? It has to because it has to continually poll the port.

no…you have to set it manually. The installer does not openfire as a service.

OK, that was it. Works great now. Thank you very much. I misunderstood what the install manual was telling me and simply skipped this step.

Thanks.

Why not just put it in the start up folder in all programs and your done

Because if you logout it will quit, or it won’t start until you login. And administrators usually are not logged on the servers all the time.
