Openfire doesn't work after a restart


I’m running a Openfire on a linux server, for some reason i got to restart my server, after that, user couldn’t login to their account thru Spark. I’ve checked the service is running. Then i go into the Web admin page, the page start with a setup wizard, OK, then try to set it up again with Embedded Database, the problem comes up,

“A connection to the database could not be made. View the error message by opening the “/logs/error.log” log file, then go back to fix the problem.”

But I cannot find any error message in the error log about the above issue.

Does anyone encounter similar thing? & How can i solve this problem?

Thanks in advance


If you use rpm package to install, maybe it occured. Before you restart, run “service openfire stop”.

First reason if you get setup wizard after server restart is a permissions issue. Do a user which is starting Openfire has write permissions to openfire dir?

It wors fine, ths everyone
