I’m relatively new to Openfire.
Recently upgraded to Openfire 3.6.4, which included Search plugin v1.4.3. Using Spark v2.5.8 and cannot search. When do a search, get the “Unable to contact search service” error.
In reviewing prior discussions, tried going back to Search plugin v1.4.0, but no joy. Did the backrev as follows:
delete search.jar and search folders from the plugins directory
copy older search.jar into the plugins directory
plugin auto loads and creates the search directory under plugins
Appears to be a problem at the server end as the Openfire admin console shows the plugin loaded, but does not have a “Search Service Properites” sidebar item located under the “Server” tab as it should per the documentation.
Has anyone else run into this?
