For people looking for a guide on how to set up a modern XMPP server, take a look at the :

It was updated at the recent Dusseldorf XMPP sprint.

@jcbrand this is great, I was feeling like I should be updating my old #XMPP server guide which is over 3 years old at this point, but still comes up in a lot of searches.

I might just add a link to that at the top of the pages now. :awesome:



Anyone experienced with both #ejabberd and #prosody #xmpp servers and who would care to share their impressions?

@61 @jcbrand right now I'm kind of leaning toward ejabberd for future deployment, but there's not a lot in it really.

My main public servers are Prosody and running as well as ever, and I run ejabberd at work with the company LDAP directory backing it.

Honestly they're both great and stable and I'd suggest reading their docs and seeing which one you feel most comfortable with.



I've been running #ejabberd for God knows how long. Over a decade in its current domain already, I hardly ever touch it, but I'm curious to see what else is out there and how these two compare.

Great timing! I was thinking of updating my server recently, and this is perfect for a rebuild!
