We use ejabberd to power the XMPP-Service behind jabber.at and jabber.fsinf.at, which no longer allows registrations (the CMS is a Drupal). Due to ejabberd being written in erlang, no real code has been contributed to ejabberd so far, but we do submit bug reports. We also collect information on how to configure ejabberd nodes at runtime.
Because we encourage others to run their own jabber servers, we share our (fairly advanced) configuration with the world. You can find the files in github.com/mathiasertl/jabber.at. All sensitive information is located in another file called secrets.cfg that is not included in the repository, look at the file secrets.cfg.example to see how the file should look like.
Due to the use of file inclusion and macro definition, the files only work with ejabberd 2.1.0 or later. We use a few contributed modules, a complete list is usually found at the beginning of the file ejabberd.cfg.
There are quite a few tricks that allow you to configure ejabberd at runtime, avoiding downtimes due to reconfiguration. For a list of all known commands, please see ejabberd runtime configuration.
We maintain recent packages for ejabberd in our Apt repositories. The repositories also contains a large number of ejabberd modules found in the ejabberd-modules SVN repository. The ejabberd packages are included in the components ejabberd, jabber and all.
We allow registration via our homepage at jabber.at/register. The registration form is implemented as a Drupal plugin and it uses ejabberd_xmlrpc (which we also provide a Package for) to communicate with ejabberd. The module also requires xmlrpc bindings for PHP, under Debian/Ubuntu the package is called php5-xmlrpc.
The plugin can be found at git.fsinf.at/fsinf/drupal.
- No registration for multiple hosts
- No authentication to the xmlrpc interface

|EJAB-1240||Add timestamp to the database schemas (PostgreSQL)||Mati||Resolved||2.1.4/3.0.0||Actually related to EJAB-1235 (see below). It turns out that in EJAB-376 created_at colums where already added to the MySQL schema file. This adds those columns to the PostgreSQL schema file as well.|
|EJAB-1237||"ejabberdctl update" to update modified modules||Mati||Resolved||2.1.5/3.0.0||This introduces the ejabberdctl commands update_list, update_all and update_module. Note that "update_list" does not work with ejabberd-2.1.4.|
