I was still running an old Jive Messenger 2.3.1 so I decided it was time to upgrade. Installing a Wildfire is so easy that I never upgrade. I just export the users from the old server, do a fresh install of the new server, tweak two or three settings, and import the users. If you are upgrading from a Jive Messenger server, edit the XML before importing, and replace the start and end tag from
Wildfire. I consider this not a bug, but a real annoyance: the User import/export plugin could easily support old formats, to make their own users to upgrade their server...
This time, it took me less than 10 minutes. Yes, it's that easy. And I'll bet that you could even do it in less time, but I have to patch the
wildfire startup file to my personal taste.
The patch to the
wildfire script allows me to run Wildfire in the foregroun, under daemontools. Its simple: copy the
start section of the shell script and rename it as
foreground and then remove the
nohup at the beginning of the following line and the
& at the end. There, you can now
supervise your Wildfire installation.
simplicidade.org domain is now up and running again, with a full XMPP compliant server.
Note 2: Pedro also has problems with the file. I don't know what's going on. I can do a
tar zxf both on the server side and on the client side after downloading with Safari. In any case I placed two more options for download, a
.zip. Maybe that helps.
