I installed Openfire 3.6.4 on Win 7. Install seemed to go smoothly (embedded db, default users & groups).
Then i couldn’t login to the admin console.
I tried restarting the server.
I tried the authorizedJIDs thing.
I tried setting setup to false, and going through the setup again.
I looked at the entry in the OFUSER table in the embedded-db-viewer
I tried to to look at http://www.igniterealtime.org/issues/browse/JM
but that’s the wrong link. The correct link http://www.igniterealtime.org/issues/browse/OF
OK, so I have to build from source to get the patch r11017 from more than a year ago (May 2009) ?!
But at this point I’m wondering whether that’s worth the effort. If indeed trunk head fixes this fundamental problem, will the rest of it work properly? Why has it been so long since the last release?
I guess i could use MySQL, that might work, but I don’t really want to try that now.
http://www.igniterealtime.org/projects/openfire/index.jsp promised me “Openfire is incredibly easy to setup and administer”. Not true in my case. Who knows how many other people are being put off by a similar experience. Lots, judging by the number of times this has come up in the forums.
