New guy here, trialling Openfire/Spark for our Faculty at University, hopefully supporting up to 50 users intitially, perhaps a couple hundred with a commerical license if all goes well Looks pretty super so far.
Just a question for which I cannot find an FAQ or forum answer to about the “Check for Updates” command in Spark. I have Spark 2.5.7 on WinXP SP2, installed with the Spark-bundled JRE. I click on the “Check for Updates” command, it tells me that a newer version is available (2.5.8), asks me if I want to install, I click OK - and nothing. The client remains open, no further disk or network activity…looks like the command sort of does nothing.
Now on Ubuntu 7.10 AMD64, Spark 2.5.7 - I hit the “Check for Updates” command - and I consistently get the prompt that no updates are available. Uses Java 1.5.0 as bundled with Ubuntu.
Maybe I am missing something simple here, but what could be the problem?
I am running Openfire 3.4.1 on Ubuntu x86 32bit, if that is of any relevance.
Perhaps someone could also kindly let me know how to otherwise do an in-place upgrade on both systems such that I don’t have to re-add and authorise my buddies?
Any help given would be much appreciated!
