Openfire Installation ok - No acces to frontend


my name ist Thomas and i’m new in this forum.

I had installed Openfire 4.1.1 on Linux Debian Webserver in /opt/openfire.

I can reach the adminpanel here: http://mywebserversip:9090

Here can i administer without problems, create users and rooms, all ist fine and and ok?

Here are my simple questions to understand Openfire:

  • How can users reach the chat, login, and discuss, which Port or url is necessary?

By use of port 522 i get no connection.

Port 7070 gives out the following (see above)

  • /http-bind —> o.e.j.s.ServletContextHandler@3133bc7a{/http-bind,null,AVAILABLE}
  • /crossdomain.xml —> o.e.j.s.ServletContextHandler@3b9b06d2{/crossdomain.xml,null,AVAILABLE}
  • /http-bind —> o.e.j.s.ServletContextHandler@6424c626{/http-bind,null,AVAILABLE}
  • /crossdomain.xml —> o.e.j.s.ServletContextHandler@2a4d1c27{/crossdomain.xml,null,AVAILABLE}

What does this mean?

  • Is openfire now complete or need i some plugins (frontend) aditional too?

  • In which directory can i find the css in order to customise my Openfire?

Thank you in advantage



General xmpp clients use 5222 tcp port. 7070 is used by web clients usually. You don’t need any plugins for Openfire. You just need a client (Spark or anything else XMPP | XMPP Clients ).

Hi wroot,

thanks for answering!

Is it possible to install Spark by use of the commandline?

I dont find a how to or a hint “how to install”.

Hope you will help me again.



There is no “how to install” because on most platforms it’s just double click and press Next a few times Yeah, it is possible to run the installer via cmd (i can tell for Windows, deb, rpm or you can even untar and run the tarball version all via cmd). At least on Windows it also supports the -q switch for a silent install.

Once you have it running, you can use this guide (there is a link to it on Spark’s help menu) Spark User Guide (revised)
