Install Openfire Chat Server at RHEL/CentOS/OEL 6

# wget
# rpm -ivh openfire-3.8.1-1.i386.rpm
# service openfire start

check out the /opt/openfire/logs

Found it can't start.

I got it to start on RHEL 6 64 bit by installing the 32 bit library
yum install libldb.i686

It's actually just zlib.i686 it needs.
Installing libldb isn't necessary, but it installs zlib as a dependency.

Then goto http://[Server IP]:9090

Admin Console Port:9090
Secure Admin Console Port:9091
Standard Database Connection:

Install mysql database to support it or use internal DB for small group.

# yum install mysql-server.x86_64
# service mysqld start
# /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation
# chkconfig mysqld on

Create an new openfire database and user.

# chkconfig openfire on

  3. Hi,

    I can configurate multiple-domins in the same openfire server?

  4. I know that there are countless plug-ins designed to make the comments do-follow, but I'm looking for something that will make the links in the blog-posts themselves do-follow. Please include a link or detailed instructions on how to do this. Thanks!. Do you have any examples of themes that you know for a fact have do-follow links in the posts? I'm having a hard time finding good information about this by searching..

  5. It's going to be end of mine day, but before finish
    I am reading this enormous post to increase my know-how.
