Installing and Configuring OpenFire

OpenFire – A cross-platform XMPP server written in Java.

For the test, I will install OpenFire in Ubuntu Server 16.04 and describe the process.

Since OpenFire requires Java, let’s see the installed version on the system:

java -version

If necessary, install Java:

sudo apt-get install default-jre

Then go to the download page www.igniterealtime.org/downloads/, click download and copy the link.

Download, adding at the end the copied link instead of LINK:

wget -O openfire.deb LINK

For example:

wget -O openfire.deb http://www.igniterealtime.org/downloadServlet?filename=openfire/openfire_4.2.1_all.deb

Install:

sudo dpkg --install openfire.deb

Now it remains to open in the browser http://YourServer:9090/ and follow the prompts.

After that, the installation of OpenFire will be completed.

If necessary, you can stop, start, or restart OpenFire like this:

/etc/init.d/openfire {start|stop|restart|force-reload}
