I am using Openfire as collaboration software in windows server 2008 R2 Domain. Today I am planning to install Elastix 2.3 on my Hyper-V server for VoIP implementation that Elastix has built-in openfire server. Is there any solution to backup windows version of openfire and restore it on Elastix?

Last time I checked OpenFire used some built-in Java database system. That one could be ported to other systems back then. It was about 304 years ago, however. – 0xC0000022L Mar 6 '13 at 13:16
Do you use the openfire embedded db? If it's a large organization it might be worth migrating to a MySQL db for greater flexibility. – Not Kyle stop stalking me Mar 11 '13 at 20:35
that, you are right, but I'm using embedded DB right now! – Kaveh Mar 12 '13 at 10:17

Openfire is great software!

Try installing the "User Import Export" plugin from the Plugins tab (under Available Plugins). Then go to your Users/Groups tab and you will notice the new "Import & Export" option. Reverse on the new system and hopefully that will make the migration easier!

BTW: the embedded database is HSQL and uses the connection string:


if you have a little java know-how, you could connect to the same database and write a script to export the data to whatever format you prefer then insert to your MySQL database. The schema should be the same on both databases (I think!).
