I have just upgraded to openfire 3.4.3 from wildfire 3.0.1 (via 3.2.0) and everything appears to work, apart from logging into the HTTPS admin console. The login page is display prompting for username/password, but upon entering these the page just hangs.
Strangly, I can authenticate via plain HTTP.
My jabber connections to the server work fine.
Openfire is running on RHEL4 via Sun’s JRE 1.5.0_09. My user accounts are specified via LDAP (over SSL) as are the admin accounts. I imported my SSL certificate from my wildfire install, which did only contain the public/private keypair provided by my registrar, as well as the rest of the certificate chain to get to their root CA. The keystore doesn’t contain the CA for the LDAP though (but either Openfire does validate the cert chain for that anyhow, or I haven’t switched it on).
Attempts to log into the admin console via HTTPS don’t show up in the LDAP access log, but those from HTTP/jabber do.
I tested with before upgrading with jdk1.5.0_13, and this appeared to work fine (although it was on a different machine so may not be the only difference).
I have seen this post:
but am not sure if it’s the same issue.
Could this be a JVM issue?
