Problems with logging Openfire 3.8.1 Linux

For those having the following error with the logging for openfire 3.8.1 linux

java.io.FileNotFoundException: /logs/debug.log

You may change the file bin/openfire to fix the problem (at least, for me, it did).

  1. Look for the line starting with nohup
  2. Move -DopenfireHome and -Dopenfire.lib.dir so that they are before -classpath
  3. Restart openfire
  4. Problem solved

In version 3.7.1, it was like that and it logged correctly. I don’t know why the script has been changed that way, but it introduces problems.
