After finally tracking down the downloadable installation of Wildfire 3.2 and upgrading my Wildfire 3.0, I’m trying to upgrade to OPENfire 3.3.
I am looking at the instructions at:
Unforunately, these instructions aren’t specific enough and I’m hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I’m using Windows.
So, on my system I have a Wildfire folder and an Openfire folder. Wildfire contains the 3.2 Wildfire installation with an embedded database. Openfire folder contains a fresh brand new (and working) Openfire installation, using mySQL as the backend.
Step 4: Install 3.3.0. I assume they mean OPENfire 3.3.0, which first of all doesn’t exist anymore (3.3.2 is the most recent I think). HOWEVER, knowing that I had to first upgrade WILDfire from 3.01 to 3.2 it wasn’t a far stretch of the imagination to read “4) Install 3.3.0” and think uhh, does he mean there’s another version of WILDfire out there that’s newer than 3.2, ie 3.3?
In Steps 5 to 10, should I be doing these changes in the WILDfire folder and then copying those changed files to the same location in the OPENfire folder?
For instance, step 8 says to delete the old plugin folders and drop in new versions of the plugins. But if I was in the OPENfire folder, there shouldn’t be any plugins. I could see deleting and/or upgrading WILDfire plugins, but why would I do this if I’m going to be using the OPENfire folder from now on? Step 10 specifically tells me to use the openfire service startup script, which doesn’t exist in the WILDfire folder.
Finally, what’s the procedure for swapping from embedded WILDfire to mySQL based OPENfire?
I love the Wildfire product, and I consider myself a pretty sharp guy, but this upgrade procedure has been a nightmare simply because the documentation for it seems incomplete, starting with the very first step that there’s no download link for WILDfire 3.2.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated…!
