OpenFire and Red5.war Installation

Hopefully someone can help with a question regarding OpenFire and the Red5 plug-in.


The Red5 plugin readme ( says:


You will need Openfire version 3.5.0 and above. Java 1.6 is required.



Enable HTTP_BIND on Openfire (if disabled) and note the HTTP port.

Copy the red5.war file to the Openfire_HOME/plugins directory.

Go to the page http://your_server:your_http_bind_port/red5/index.html on your server to use the red5 flash web applications in your own client applications.


Our OpenFire installation is:


Windows 2K server.

Version: Openfire 3.6.4

Java Version: 1.6.0_03 Sun Microsystems Inc. -- Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM

Appserver: jetty-6.1.x was obtained from, unzipped and root.war renamed to red5.war.


After following the installation instructions OpenFire does not pick the red5.war file and does not create the red5 folder.


Are we missing the obvious ?
