Wildfire Server is haulting preventing pandion to connect and work


We have been using the combination of PAndiom Messanger and WildFire Server for office network messageing and this has been in place since 2006.

This moring we are not able to log onto pandiun and the wildfire server indicates with a series of error messages that the server is haulted.

I am aware that Wildfire has now changed to openfire

The wildfire server we have in place is version 2.4.3 running on a windows Server 2003

For the past 2 years of workingin this business each time WildFire is started the following message displays with the error messages as follows however the existense of this message has not prevented pandion from working until today.

Can i be given some guidance as to the steps i need to follow to have PAndion / wildfire operational again.

Server halted

This looks like something is wrong with the database. Are you able to login to Admin Console? Maybe database is corrupted or connection with the database is broken. Also, what type of database do you use?
