Openfire in Active/Passive


I know that openfire (Whether commercial version) doesn’'t support Cluster (Active/Active) or (Master/Slave) Architecture.

I want to know if openfire supports Active/Passive architecture?

If yes, which files or directory must I share?

Thanks in advance.


Openfire needs the configuration file conf/openfire.xml and if you are using the embedded database embedded-db/*

If you use an external database you may access it with JDBC and may want to use database specific functions to create a shadow or mirror database or a database cluster. If you use LDAP/AD you may also want to run an LDAP shadow.

As Openfire uses a database cache you should make sure that only one instance is active and running.
