It’s just data

Prosody as a personal xmpp server

Nearly six years ago, I set up a personal Jabber server using ejabberd.  This setup survived the server migration to Ubuntu 8.04 and 10.04.  This past weekend, I attempted to migrate that to a server running 12.04 and all I could get out of it was an erlang crash dump.

A quick scan for successors turned up prosody. Configuration was as simple as adding a VirtualHost and setting allow_registration to true.
