• how do I know if I have the XMPP server ejabberd service avaiable? I use hostgator as my hosting company

  • You need to install ejabberd on your server. Its not installed yet on your webserver. 

  • Hello Brice,

    It seems most cheap hosting companies don't offer the ability to add this. Is there any way to use a public server or something like that? Do all conversations have to be authenticated with username password?

    With Love,

  • What was updated in this version?

  • Hi!

    I forked the repo on http://github.com/caedesvvv/beechat

    It fixes a few issues with tokens, and changes the behaviour a little bit:

    • cooked js doesnt cook tokens or languages (separated now to another file)
    • db data now can be set from the admin panel
    • users have to enable the chat in their settings
    • migrate.php added that will make the initial sync
    • make the get roster js action asynchronous

    and probably more.. check the diffs. for now I consider this chat beta, this is why i added the option so every user has to enable the chat personally. also, there are still a few error_logs here and there to debug things.

    anyways, we enabled it on http://n-1.cc (production)

    thx for this great chat, and keep it up!

  • Hi there are configuration in the perl authentication script,

    use DBI;
    use Unix::Syslog qw(:macros :subs);
    my $dsn = "DBI:mysql:preprod:localhost:5333";
    my $db_username = "DBUSERNAME";
    my $db_password = "DBPASSWORD";
    my $db_table = "YOURELGGPREFIX_users_entity";

    What preprod, DBUSERNAME, should be replaced with ? I tried the beechat database but failed to authenticate.


  • preprod should be the database name, and DBUSERNAME the username.

    I also had to change the port to 3306 (not sure where that 5333 is coming from... although in one of my machines it did work with 5333... ), and in $db_table be careful, because there is an extra _ after the prefix in the example, in my case it goes like:

     my $db_table = "elggusers_entity";

    because my PREFIX is "elgg".

  • Maybe the port is the problem. Thanks

  • ejabberd database username or elgg database user name ?


  • I get the ejabberd log below :

  • The beechat client cant connect to the ejabberd server. The status always "connecting" instead of "authenticating" and "online"

  • Solved.  Cant connect to the ejabberd server version 2.1.4..  works on previous version..
