I’'m having trouble getting Openfire to run on a Slackware VPS.
I’‘m new to Slackware (and linux in general, for the most part) but here’'s the score so far:
I created a user “jive” and added it to the group “jive” and gave it the home directory /opt/openfire.
I downloaded and unzipped Java from Java’‘s website. Trying to run openfire as “jive” with ‘’/opt/openfire start’’ returns
No suitable Java Virtual Machine could be found on your system.
The version of the JVM must be at least 1.5.
Please define INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME to point to a suitable JVM.
You can also try to delete the JVM cache file /opt/openfire/.install4j
How do I tell what Java’‘s home directory is? As I didn’'t know, I ran a few searches on the forum for people having similar problems, and someone suggested trying this from /opt/openfire/lib/:
java -server -jar /opt/openfire/lib/startup.jar
Admin console listening at http://127.0.0.1:9090
which looks like a successful start up.
However, as I only have console access to this box, it would be much nicer to configure it remotely via HTTP, and trying to connect to http://:9090 doesn’'t connect to the admin panel. In fact,
netstat -an|grep 9090
