ejabberd is the de facto XMPP server in the world. The fact that it is used to power the largest deployments in the world should not intimidate you. ejabberd is. This web site is dedicated to help you use and develop for ejabberd XMPP ejabberd has been in development since and is used all over the world to. Clustering relies on Erlang features and Mnesia shared schemas. Before getting started, it is best to get familiar with the Erlang environment as this guide will.

While some modules don’t need to maintain an internal state “stateless” modulesothers are required to do this “stateful” modules.

The authentication information is provided when executing a command, and is Username, Hostname and Password or OAuth token of a local XMPP account that has permission to execute the corresponding command. This module routes packets to local users. With such a deployment you can load balance the traffic to your cluster node using one of the following solution:. This is only useful if you plan to setup an ejabberd cluster with nodes in different networks.

In order to inject a sub-element into or delete one from arbitrary stanza one can use xmpp: The Erlang node will be identified using only the first part of the host name, i. A function associated with an accumulating hook is called as Module: Password remove this account if the password is correct write to stdout: The external authentication script follows the erlang port driver API. Usually, you want to have the same ejabberd.

To accomplish this one can use the following function:. Change the erlang node name in a backup file export2sql virtualhost filepath: It performs configuration file parsing and validation. If this resource is connected to this node, it is routed to C2S process, if it connected via another node, then the ejabberdd is sent to session manager on that node.

This means that, after running this command, you have to restart ejabberd. Those commands can be defined in any Erlang module and executed using any valid frontend. There is a couple guids helpers to deal with such modules:.

Dump internal Mnesia database to a text file dump. This is the default method. Ejabberd parallel processes are created for the handler and all matching IQs are relayed to one of these processes.

This has lead to unmaintainable monolithic spaghetti code with a lot of code duplication between these modules. The result is that this node is not considered part of the cluster. The ejabberdctl commands are: The easiest way to get a list of the available commands, and get help for them is to use the ejabberdctl script: Otherwise, the new value NewAcc is passed to the next function in the associated list.

The full list of supported protocol and extensions is available on Protocols Supported by ejabberd page. The Debug Console is an Erlang guife attached to an already running ejabberd server.

The state is represented by a map in both cases. In order to generate stanza errors or stream errors xmpp: By default ejabberd rotates the log files when they get grown above a certain size.

If the cluster is used behind a load balancer and the node has been removed from the load balancer, no new clients should be connecting to that node but established connections should be kept, thus allowing to remove a node smoothly, by stopping it after most clients disconnected by themselves. When ejabberdctl is executed without any parameter, it displays the available options.

Examples of guids callback functions are:. When one or several access restrictions are defined and the authentication information is provided, each restriction is verified until one matches completely: Number of outgoing s2s connections on the huide register user host password: Throttles a connection using shapers from shaper. Adding new functionality There are two common ways to add new functionality to ejabberd: It routes them based on their destinations domains.

There are two common types of internal representation of JIDs: If the node is started again, it’s immediately attached back to the cluster until it has been explicitly removed permanently from the cluster. Note that Host argument is omitted in this case. As such, ejabberd support: The ejabberd Web Admin allows to administer most of ejabberd using a web browser.

It relies on a dynamic community all over the world. Make sure your new ejabberd node is properly configured. Maximum number of simultaneously open Erlang ports. This is the preferable option in most cases. Removing a node from the cluster To remove a node from the cluster, it just needs to be shut down.
