Install OpenFire on Ubuntu

Requirements: You will need to have installed Apache, Php, MySql and phpMyAdmin (optional).

1.Install Java

2.Create one user and one database for OpenFire

By using phpMyAdmin:

Start phpMyAdmin. On the main page, locate Priviledges and scroll down to Add a new User. Use the following on the New User screen:

Username = Enter a username, I used ‘openfire’
Host = From the drop down menu, select localhost
Password = Enter a password, retype your password

Under the Database for user section of that page, click on the radio button for Create database with same name and grant all priviledges.

At the bottom of the page, click on the Go button.

3.Download and unpack our package

Change directory

cd /opt

Download the archive from OpenFire Official Website

sudo wget http://www.igniterealtime.org/downloadServlet?filename=openfire/openfire_3_6_4.tar.gz

Unpack file

Create a a symlink

sudo ln -s /opt/openfire/bin/openfire /etc/init.d/

Make your symlink executable

sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/openfire
