Yes, I can get into the Admin console. I am able to do so after running the setup/install as well as after copying the database files over.
After the install, just the regular / bare minimum is shown…
After copying the database, all of our groups and users are in openfire - so the copying and pasting the database is working
I also tried an older copy of the database from when spark was working and it did not help.
Here is the flow of what I have been doing:
Stop openfire service
uninstall open fire
install open fire
log into admin to confirm it is working
stop openfire service
copy old database files that were in …Openfire\embedded-db\
log into admin to confirm users and groups are loaded
something appears to be blocking or refusing the Spark user
Thank you for your help.
