Openfire schem is not installed, server runs?

I upgraded from 3.5.0 on RH to 3.5.1 via rpm. I started the server, saw the options page, ran everything no problem.

Now it’s showing me the configuration screen and stating:

The Openfire database schema does not appear to be installed. Follow the installation guide to fix this error.

I tried updating my database from the documentation for the install but i get nothing. The message I get back says “1” so I assume that it’s valid.

Everytime I go back to the admin console it AGAIN prompts me to set everything up. When i start the server, clients connect, data flows through and people can talk back and forth.

Few questions:

What am I doing wrong, if anything to update the database?

Can I bypass this configuration screen and go right to admin console because the server IS running and Client are connecting?

My files are stored in:


I believe the database is in


Any clues cause I’m stumped here.

Update: I forgot to add we are using an EMBEDDED db. No external database, no mysql or nothing. just trying to use what we have ‘working’ since we updated from 3.4 to 3.5 and now 3.5.1
