So, I’ve been browsing this and other sites for the last 2 days trying to figure out how to work with OpenFire+SSL+renewed-cert. Perhaps their instructions work for some people, but obviously there is something flawed because the community and google are just cluttered with thousands of people having issues. In fact there are so many issues that I can’t find the solution to my problem(although I see several unanswered ports with identical problems), and I cant even find information as to whether OpenFire plans on implementing any type of sane certificate handling in the future.
Does anyone know if OpenFire plans on fixing their SSL support and perhaps using something other than the ill-documented ‘keytool’? Google is so overloaded with OpenFire+keytool+ssl problems that I can’t even find heads or tails about the future of it. From the lack of responses from many of the ssl posts it seems like the OpenFire devs simply don’t care. That given, I cannot in good consience continue using this as it always seems to lead to headaches. I’ve done ssl certs many times and on many distros, and sure, they aren’t super-simple, but… OMG, this is redic.
I would post my problem, but there are plenty of other unanswered posts about SSL(with totally adaquate logs/debug/details). Perhaps there is even an answer somewhere, but in the haystack of openfire+ssl problems, I have (like many others) been unable to find the needle that is my solution.
