Problems logging on to openfire

Hello everyone:

Well from what I see there is a semi common trend some people have problems login on to their account after creation. And I myself am not exempt from it…

I have tried several times to get this right and I have not been able to get in everytime.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled, I have edited the xml setup to false and restarted… I have restarted the server after setup, everything I have done doesn’t work.

The user name I’m using is admin, and then my password… I have checked all of this multiple times and can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. I have tried upper and lower case Admin, and played withmy password, with out joy.

I also looked in the beginning at the XML file and the username and password were my normal ones that I use, but they didn’t work. I’m all out of ideas.

I’m trying to get a dedicated Chat applet on my helpdesk portal for my customers and I’m stuck…

also this is an “error” that i’m getting in my admin portal:

This is my first time setting up all of this stuff. I have always just worked with the computer itself, not setting up servers and such.

I look forward to any replies thank you have a great day



I assume that Spark or any other client do work fine and that only the applet hat this problem. Is there a place where you did specify “http://mywebsite.org” in your applet? There you should specify "user@mywebsite.org" to solve the “Illegal JID: http://mywebsite.org” error.
