I have been running openfire for some time now. I would like to upgrade to 3.10.3 from 3.9.3. I am using Ubuntuy 12.04. Every time I try upgrade to the new version… Openfire never starts up. I have tried removing all the plugins and then upgrading. I am not sure what I am missing… but I am missing something in the steps. I am using the .deb package and just downloading it via wget through cli and using dpk to install. Any ideas on where I should look would be greatly apperciated.
ok… i will answer my own question… got it started on the command line by using this command from the /usr/share/openfire/lib directory
java -classpath startup.jar -jar startup.jar
and it worked fine… so it must be a java issue with how the init.d script is set up… i know the script used java6… i thought I changed it to use 7 but maybe I did it wrong the first time… I will update later when/if I get it figured out
thanks for you help… it turned out the default java being use was the oracle v8… so I changed the init.d script for openfire to reference that version instead of v6 and the server was up and running. Thanks for helping me through this upgrade I do appreciate it.
