Version upgradation from 4.0.0 . to 4.4.4

I have Bitnami Openfire setup on linux. The previous version was 4.2.3 and now I want to upgrade it on 4.4.4, so I follow below link set up, https://docs.bitnami.com/installer/apps/openfire/administration/upgrade/
But after setup, I access my admin panel and got the error, please see screenshot,

Now my question is after up-gradation of Openfire why admin panel gives me re-setup everything like server setting, database settings and profile setting? Why it not showing me my previous settings.?

I think you should contact Bitnami support. We can’t support 3d party installation scripts. Setup repeating itself usually happens when not enough permissions are provided to the user running Openfire. I guess Bitnami script is not right. Maybe they also do not support newest Openfire version yet. Ask them.
