Upgrade openfire tar.gz installation

Hello!

I was trying to upgrade Openfire server from 3.9.3 to 3.10.2

Uzsing this metod

ZIP or TAR.GZ

  1. Stop Openfire.
  2. Backup the Openfire installation directory. This step is critical because the data will be overwritten with the new .tar.gz install.
  3. Backup the Openfire database. Note that the embedded database is backed up in step 2.
  4. Install the .tar.gz file (extract it over the current directory).
  5. Copy the conf directory from the backup to the installation directory.
  6. Copy the embedded-db directory from the backup to the installation directory.
  7. Copy the enterprise directory from the backup to the installation directory, if it exists.
  8. Copy the plugins directory from the backup to the installation directory except for plugins/admin.
  9. Copy modified files located in resources/security from the backup to the installation directory.
  10. Start Openfire

After all is done, opening web admin panel it was offer to setup openfire setup…

something I am doing wrong?

Hi,

maybe your config file’s permssion was wrong.

when you use cmd service openfire start to run openfire, the program run user is daemon.but your config user is root or others,

you can use cmd chown -R daemon.daemon * under openfir install dir, to change the openfire’s own user.
