Remove OpenFire!

I’d like to do a complete removal of openfire, and delete it completly. I just can’t get openfire to upgrade, so I am hoping that a complete removal will work. Here is what I have tried…

rpm -e openfire

error: package openfire is not installed

rpm -e openfire-3.6.2-1.i386

error: package openfire-3.6.2-1.i386 is not installed

rm -rf /opt/openfire

rm -rf /etc/init.d/openfire

rpm -qa | grep openfire

Nothing was found on the search so to me that means it is not longer installed. Oh, and I deleted the database.

However, the web interface still loads…granted it’s just a 404 error. It should not be loading at all.

That page produces the following…

So what is Jetty, and how do I get rid of it?

Also, since I am here might as well go ahead and inform you of the error I am getting when I try to install openfire.

rpm -ivh openfire-3.6.2-1.i386.rpm

So you would think that I don’t have Java installed, but that’s not the case.

java -version

java version “1.4.2_16”
Java™ 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_16-b05)

Oh, and I am running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2.

Hi,

you may want to kill the still running Openfire process to get rid of it.

Take also a look at /etc/rc.d/init.d/ - there could be still an openfire script.

Probably you get this Java message, because Openfire requires Java 1.5.x or newer.
