I am having trouble with openfire

I found after starting I could not connect to the server
Getting error
WARNING: no shebang line in COPYRIGHT

Here is the test sequence that shows the error:
# service openfire start
Starting openfire
#service openfire status
openfire is running as pid 9205

NOTE At this point it appears that openfire starts BUT immediately 
afterwards it must stop because a repeat status call gives:

#service openfire status
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/openfire: WARNING no shebang line in COPYRIGHT
openfire not running? (check /var/run/

Many thanks for any guidance

I have reported problem to maintainer but so far no response.
