Upgrade to Openfire 3.9.1 crashed Openfire

Hey,

since an upgrade to openfire 3.9.1 with rpm -Uvf openfire-3.9.1-1.i386.rpm we cannot start openfire anymore.

How can we solve this problem?

Thanks

Look in openfire’s lib/ folder for an old bouncycastle.jar file. Remove it and try starting openfire again

I havn’t found bouncycastle.jar in openfire’s lib/ folder.

I’ve installed openfire 3.8.1 again and then I’ve upgraded openfire to 3.9.0 and 3.9.1. Everything worked fine then.
