Prosody XMPP Server

Prosody is a relatively simple and light-weight XMPP chat server written in Lua. It’s a good choice for an easy private chat server.

# apt-get install prosody
$  cat /etc/prosody/README
Prosody configuration directory

The configuration file /etc/prosody/prosody.cfg.lua should contain
only global settings.

Per-host configuration files should be placed in /etc/prosody/conf.avail/,
and the active ones should be linked in /etc/prosody/conf.d/

The config files are well commented. The default prosody.cfg.lua file has sane defaults.

# cp /etc/prosody/conf.avail/ /etc/prosody/conf.avail/
# ln -s /etc/prosody/conf.avail/ /etc/prosody/conf.d/

Open port 5222:

# iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 5222 -j ACCEPT -m comment --comment "Server XMPP (prosody)."
