Openfire.xml changes keep getting deleted

This is getting very annoying and I can find no documented reason for it. I am making a config change to openfire.xml. Whether I stop the service, make the change, and start it, or make the change while it is running and restart it, the same thing happens:

[root@dev conf]# grep “authorizedUsernames” openfire.xml
1594,1597,admin

[root@dev conf]# service openfire start
Starting openfire:

[root@dev conf]# grep “authorizedUsernames” openfire.xml
1594,1597,admin

AT THIS POINT I ATTEMPT TO LOG IN AS 1597, AND RECEIVE A FAILURE <<

[root@dev conf]# grep “authorizedUsernames” openfire.xml

(nothing)

in openfire.xml:

Why does it change the value? I can’t help but think this is why I can’t get a single user able to log into the admin interface, now.

This works in 3.5.2, but not when i upgrade to 3.6.2.

Most changes have moved from openfire.xml into MySQL in 3.6.2. You will need to make the change in the db.

Ok, i think i will just redo configuration from scratch, then.

Thanks!
