Trying to install wildfire

Hi,

This is my first time installing wildfire and i have limited knowledge of shell enviroments in linux.

I have followed the instructions but when i try to load the admin page i am unable to access it.

I use my websites ip address :9090 and it does not come up and there something i have not done?

I am installing remotely

Os = centos-4

I have access to SSH through virtuoso

Error::

Failed to Connect

The connection was refused when attempting to contact x.x.x.x:9090.

Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection.

  • Could the site be temporarily unavailable? Try again later.

  • Are you unable to browse other sites? Check the computer’'s network connection.

  • Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.

Hi rob,

From a linux terminal or via SSH, what do you get if you enter the following commands?:

  1. “ps auxw | grep wildfire”

  2. “netstat -ln | grep 9090”

  3. “service iptables status” or “/sbin/iptables-save”

I’‘m assuming you have root access to your server because for command (3) above, you need to be root. Otherwise, I’'m suspecting that your system admin has setup a firewall on the server and that port 9090 is not opened for remote access.

Also, what method did you use when you install Wildfire? Was it through RPM, or did you follow the http://wiki.jivesoftware.org/display/WILDFIRE/LinuxInstallationGuide ?

installation i used was located here:

http://jivesoftware.org/builds/wildfire/docs/latest/documentation/install-guide. html

I have root access

  1. “ps auxw | grep wildfire”

root 26167 0.0 0.0 1576 484 ttyp0 R+ 03:26 0:00 grep wildfire

  1. “netstat -ln | grep 9090”

came back blank

  1. “service iptables status” or “/sbin/iptables-save”

the first one did not work but the second one return a long list of stuff but i have no idea how to copy out of the shell.

I use an apple computer if that helps.

that install doc you sent was rather complicated is that the one i should follow?

Hi,

No, it’‘s ok if you follow just http://jivesoftware.org/builds/wildfire/docs/latest/documentation/install-guide. html. So, I’'m assuming that you install it with RPM.

  1. “ps auxw | grep wildfire”

root 26167 0.0 0.0 1576 484 ttyp0 R+ 03:26 0:00 grep wildfire

  1. “netstat -ln | grep 9090”

came back blank

Looks like your Wildfire is not running, which might explain why you can’'t http://host:9090. Try this:

  1. “cd /opt/wildfire/bin/extra”

  2. “sh redhat-postinstall.sh

  3. “service wildfired start”

  4. If you still can’'t http://host:9090, do the “ps”, “netstat” and iptables-save again. What do you see?

  1. “service iptables status” or “/sbin/iptables-save”

the first one did not work but the second one return a long list of stuff but i have no idea how to copy out of the shell.

Ok, try “service iptables status | grep 9090”. If you get nothing then I guess the port is not opened. So, then “vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables”. Add ACCEPT rule for port 5222, 5223, 9090, 9091 and 7777. An easy way is to copy-paste one of the existing tcp rules and edit the port number. Save the iptables file, then run:

“/sbin/iptables -F; /sbin/iptables-restore < /etc/sysconfig/iptables”

You should be able to see something if you do “service iptables status | grep 9090”. The other ports are minimally those you might want to open as well in order to use the features available in Wildfire and Jabber world.

im going to go back to the drawing board on this one as i have a feeling that there maybe a java issue.

I have reinstalled java now but it is still not working i went through the steps above and got similar responces.

any ideas?

Can you see any clue of the problem from Wildfire log files located in /opt/wildfire/logs?
