Due to initial mysql schema failure, a new install will ask for current admin password and fail due to non-existent schema


A user reports, that fresh installation of Openfire asks for the old admin password when some other database is used and not the embedded one. I can confirm, that there is no such issue with the embedded one. Can't test with other option though.

Just to note that the source code change made by Guus related to this ticket has the admin console emit an error in this situation instead of silently ignoring the non-auth related bug

Can this issue be closed as a duplicate of OF-1255?

I did. As I said, the tables were made.

Did you fix the typo with your connection string to MySQL? Otherwise, lets continue the discussion on the community fourms

Glad I was not crazy. Openfire did create the tables, so my previous posting of a java error was probably not right.
1. How do I fix this?
2. Is there a way to import my users from the embedded db into a real mysql db if I switch? They are throwing things at me because each time I update Openfire, they have to readd all their buddies. And as an aside, the Openfire update instructions say to save the old directories, but do not tell us what to do to restore all the old information.
