Jabber Open Source Server (2.x)


Thanks for downloading jabberd2. Below are some basic instructions to get you started. Complete documentation is available at

-- the jabberd team

Required packages:

Optional packages:


% ./configure
% make
% make install

Options to ./configure:

% ./configure --help


Edit $prefix/etc/(router|sm|c2s|s2s).xml to taste. In particular, make sure you setup for your choice of data storage correctly. If you're using the Berkeley DB backend, you'll need to create /var/run/jabberd and sets its permissions so that the server processes can find it.

If you're using a SQL backend, you'll need to create an account for the server to use, and create the tables. Load db-setup.mysql or db-setup.pgsql from the tools/ directory into your database to do this.

If you plan to use the jabberd wrapper script, make sure you look at the paths in the $prefix/etc/jabber/jabberd.cfg.


You can either run all of the pieces separately:

% $prefix/bin/router &
% $prefix/bin/s2s &
% $prefix/bin/sm &
% $prefix/bin/c2s &

Or you can run them all from the jabberd wrapper script:

% $prefix/jabberd &

All the processes can take the following switches:

-c use an alternate config file
-D output lots of debugging info (if compiled with --enable-debug)


Please see NEWS file.


When requesting assistance, please note that the following things can provide useful information which may assist with finding your problem:

  • debug logs (compile with --enable-debug and run with -D)
  • running components seperately (ie without the wrapper script)
  • config.log

Please try to provide as much relevant information as possible when reporting problems - it will make helping you much easier.
