I have just installed OpenFire on Redhat, by the .rpm package, the service is started by the command /etc/init.d/openfire start, but I cannot login to the IM server from any client. And if I open the web console on port 9090 I get the setup screen showing.
The only way to make the server accept my connection is to start it by the following script located at: /opt/openfire/bin/openfire.sh, when I do this, instead of the setup screen I can see the login screen on the web console, and it will also accept incoming connections. The only problem is that after some time after I logout from SSH the server will deny my access again.
My question is, how is the right way to start the server? By the openfire.sh script? Or by /etc/init.d/openfire start? What am I missing here?
Thank you in advance!
