    They have a .deb package that you can use to greatly simplify installing Openfire. Try running that instead. It's much easier, and I had it up and fully running....... However I can't seem to get a user connect just yet.

    Duhhh, I tried installing Jabberd first and it's what was listening on the ports first. After removing it and restarting Openfire, I can connect just fine.

    So the .deb package they have works wonders. Just install it, then log onto the admin website after it's finished installing to configure Openfire. It's on:

    http://<openfire server>:9090

    Don't forget to open the port if you have your firewall set.

    Do not use openfire 3.6.4; you can't log in into web interface!! Use openfire 3.6.3.
    I spend a few days to figure out!

    Have you tried using:

    Username: admin
    Password: admin

    (But you're right - it should better use the credentials you entered at setup)

    I am using 3.6.4 and its working fine, though you are right that after first setup, you won't be able to login to the web interface. for me all i did was to clear my browser cache and use admin as username and the password i created.
    So for those that have such problem, just launch another browser and use admin as username and password you created.
    OR
    issue sudo etc/init.d/openfire restart.... to restart openfire and then try again.

    Hmm just did an install to day and all looks good for my purposes, 5 users in a IT department using Pidgin as the client...

    Possible roll-out to 25 more if we like it.

    One question though:

    The domain defaults to the server name so you add users in the form silverw@myserver.

    But my server is a dev machine with a confusing name so silverw@srv1234.

    It would look better if it was silverw@IM so what are my options?

    Note: Just renaming the server would be a pain.

    Re: Howto: Openfire - XMPP (also called Jabber) Server

    I successfully installed openfire 3.6.4 on ubuntu 10.10 and it works like a charm after a trick with openjdk instead sun-java6-jre,
    # Attempt to locate JAVA_HOME, code borrowed from jabref package
    if [ -z $JAVA_HOME ]
    then
    t=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk && test -d $t && JAVA_HOME=$t
    fi

    but when I want to upgrade aptitude.

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    openfire : PreDepends: sun-java5-jre but it is not installable or
    sun-java6-jre but it is not installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

    I don't want to remove openfire ..
    please help
