Restore Database

Our server failed and I need to restore the Openfire server from our backups. But, I wasn’t the original person to setup the server and I’m at a loss as to where all of the data is being stored. In the Program Files\Openfire\conf\openfire.xml document, the following connectionProvider is listed:


Does this mean that our server was using the “embedded” database solution? If so, where is all of the historical chat information stored? I looked in the Program Files\Openfire\embedded-db directory, but I only see a handful of small files.

Any assistance is appreciated.



the embedded-db directory it the one where the embedded database is stored. It does not really matter that you have small files there as the database may be small, especially if you don’t use logging plugins and have a small user base.
