I have been running openfire for the better part of two years without issue. The last change I made was about 3 months ago, I installed a new plugin. Suddenly today for an unknown reason server stopped authenticating new SSOs. Typically, when this happens I just restart the entire linux server and everything is fine for another six months. Today, I restarted the server and openfire didn’t come back up automatically. I tried to start the server manually to no avail. I don’t remember the exact version of openfire running, but I believe it to be the more recent release.
I am not very linux savy, I know/knew/learned just enough to install and setup openfire.
When I try to restart the server I get the following error:
No suitable Java Virtual Machine could be found on your system.
The version of the JVM must be at least 1.5.
Please define INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME to point to a suitable JVM.
You can also try to delete the JVM cache file /home/username/.install4j
If it wasn’t obvious, the web interface is down and the port 9090 is not listening per:
netstat -a | egrep 'Proto|LISTEN'
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
