The Bitnami Openfire Stack provides a one-click install solution for Openfire. Download installers and virtual machines, or run your own Openfire server in the cloud.

Openfire is a real time collaboration (RTC) server licensed under the Open Source Apache License. It uses the only widely adopted open protocol for instant messaging, XMPP (also called Jabber). Openfire is incredibly easy to setup and administer, but offers rock-solid security and performance.

Bitnami Virtual Machines contain a minimal Linux operating system with Openfire installed and configured. This enables you to run the application without actually installing it on your computer. It's completely isolated from other software installed on your machine and makes an ideal sandbox for your project.

Using the Bitnami Virtual Machine image requires hypervisor software such as VMware Player or VirtualBox. Both of these hypervisors are available free of charge. After installing your preferred hypervisor, download and extract the Bitnami Virtual Machine by following the instructions in our getting started guide for VMware or VirtualBox.


Why use the Bitnami Openfire Stack?

Bitnami makes it easy to run Openfire in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Openfire Stack is:

  • Up-to-date

    We track every release of Openfire and update our stack shortly after it's released.

  • Secure

    If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of Openfire as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.

  • Consistent

    With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying Openfire or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.

With the Bitnami Openfire Stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.
