А вот и обещанное ранее описание процедуры инсталяции и настройки жаббер сервера «prosody» на FreeBSD.

В какой то момент вдруг и резко заебала аська. В следствии чего было решено уползти на jabber, ибо бесплатно, опенсурсно и легко конфигурируемо….. А поскольку имеем свои доменные имена и свои выделенные сервера, то решил поднять что то своё. Перебрав несколько вариантов (ejabber, openfire, prosody,…..) решил остановиться на prosody, тк очень и очень легковесный и не особо требователен к ресурсам.

13-04-2011 p.s. Пока готовил статью — появилась версия 0.8. И как следствие — изменился конфиг. Ниже теперь вставлен новый конфигурационный файл.

Начнём:

cd /usr/ports/net-im/prosody
make install clean
...
===> Compressing manual pages for prosody-0.7.0_1
===> Registering installation for prosody-0.7.0_1
===> Cleaning for lua-5.1.4_5
===> Cleaning for lua51-luasocket-2.0.2_1
===> Cleaning for lua51-luasec-0.4
===> Cleaning for lua51-luaexpat-1.1
===> Cleaning for lua51-luafilesystem-1.4.2
===> Cleaning for openssl-1.0.0_5
===> Cleaning for makedepend-1.0.3,1
===> Cleaning for xproto-7.0.16
===> Cleaning for prosody-0.7.0_1
Ну вот и установилось.

cp /usr/local/etc/prosody/prosody.cfg.lua.sample /usr/local/etc/prosody/prosody.cfg.lua
ee /usr/local/etc/prosody/prosody.cfg.lua

И редактируем конфиг:

-- Prosody Example Configuration File
--
-- Information on configuring Prosody can be found on our
-- website at http://prosody.im/doc/configure
--
-- Tip: You can check that the syntax of this file is correct
-- when you have finished by running: luac -p prosody.cfg.lua
-- If there are any errors, it will let you know what and where
-- they are, otherwise it will keep quiet.
--
-- The only thing left to do is rename this file to remove the .dist ending, and fill in the
-- blanks. Good luck, and happy Jabbering!

---------- Server-wide settings ----------
-- Settings in this section apply to the whole server and are the default settings
-- for any virtual hosts

-- This is a (by default, empty) list of accounts that are admins
-- for the server. Note that you must create the accounts separately
-- (see http://prosody.im/doc/creating_accounts for info)
-- Example: admins = { "user1@example.com", "user2@example.net" }
admins = { "xxxxxx@amigas.ru" }

-- Enable use of libevent for better performance under high load
-- For more information see: http://prosody.im/doc/libevent
--use_libevent = true;

-- This is the list of modules Prosody will load on startup.
-- It looks for mod_modulename.lua in the plugins folder, so make sure that exists too.
-- Documentation on modules can be found at: http://prosody.im/doc/modules
modules_enabled = {

-- Generally required
"roster"; -- Allow users to have a roster. Recommended ;)
"saslauth"; -- Authentication for clients and servers. Recommended if you want to log in.
"tls"; -- Add support for secure TLS on c2s/s2s connections
"dialback"; -- s2s dialback support
"disco"; -- Service discovery

-- Not essential, but recommended
"private"; -- Private XML storage (for room bookmarks, etc.)
"vcard"; -- Allow users to set vCards
--"privacy"; -- Support privacy lists
--"compression"; -- Stream compression

-- Nice to have
"legacyauth"; -- Legacy authentication. Only used by some old clients and bots.
"version"; -- Replies to server version requests
"uptime"; -- Report how long server has been running
"time"; -- Let others know the time here on this server
"ping"; -- Replies to XMPP pings with pongs
"pep"; -- Enables users to publish their mood, activity, playing music and more
"register"; -- Allow users to register on this server using a client and change passwords
"adhoc"; -- Support for "ad-hoc commands" that can be executed with an XMPP client

-- Admin interfaces
"admin_adhoc"; -- Allows administration via an XMPP client that supports ad-hoc commands
--"admin_telnet"; -- Opens telnet console interface on localhost port 5582

-- Other specific functionality
"posix"; -- POSIX functionality, sends server to background, enables syslog, etc.
--"bosh"; -- Enable BOSH clients, aka "Jabber over HTTP"
--"httpserver"; -- Serve static files from a directory over HTTP
--"groups"; -- Shared roster support
--"announce"; -- Send announcement to all online users
--"welcome"; -- Welcome users who register accounts
--"watchregistrations"; -- Alert admins of registrations
--"motd"; -- Send a message to users when they log in
};

-- These modules are auto-loaded, should you
-- (for some mad reason) want to disable
-- them then uncomment them below
modules_disabled = {
-- "presence"; -- Route user/contact status information
-- "message"; -- Route messages
-- "iq"; -- Route info queries
-- "offline"; -- Store offline messages
};

-- Disable account creation by default, for security
-- For more information see http://prosody.im/doc/creating_accounts
allow_registration = false;

-- These are the SSL/TLS-related settings. If you don't want
-- to use SSL/TLS, you may comment or remove this
ssl = {
key = "/usr/local/etc/prosody/certs/localhost.key";
certificate = "/usr/local/etc/prosody/certs/localhost.cert";
}

-- Only allow encrypted streams? Encryption is already used when
-- available. These options will cause Prosody to deny connections that
-- are not encrypted. Note that some servers do not support s2s
-- encryption or have it disabled, including gmail.com and Google Apps
-- domains.

--c2s_require_encryption = false
--s2s_require_encryption = false

-- Select the authentication backend to use. The 'internal' providers
-- use Prosody's configured data storage to store the authentication data.
-- To allow Prosody to offer secure authentication mechanisms to clients, the
-- default provider stores passwords in plaintext. If you do not trust your
-- server please see http://prosody.im/doc/modules/mod_auth_internal_hashed
-- for information about using the hashed backend.

authentication = "internal_plain"

-- Select the storage backend to use. By default Prosody uses flat files
-- in its configured data directory, but it also supports more backends
-- through modules. An "sql" backend is included by default, but requires
-- additional dependencies. See http://prosody.im/doc/storage for more info.

--storage = "sql" -- Default is "internal"

-- For the "sql" backend, you can uncomment *one* of the below to configure:
--sql = { driver = "SQLite3", database = "prosody.sqlite" } -- Default. 'database' is the filename.
--sql = { driver = "MySQL", database = "prosody", username = "prosody", password = "secret", host = "localhost" }
--sql = { driver = "PostgreSQL", database = "prosody", username = "prosody", password = "secret", host = "localhost" }

-- Logging configuration
-- For advanced logging see http://prosody.im/doc/logging
--log = {
-- info = "prosody.log"; -- Change 'info' to 'debug' for verbose logging
-- error = "prosody.err";
-- -- "*syslog"; -- Uncomment this for logging to syslog
-- -- "*console"; -- Log to the console, useful for debugging with daemonize=false
--}

log = {
-- Log all error messages to prosody.err
{ levels = { min = "error" }, to = "file", timestamps = "%s", filename = "/var/log/prosody/prosody.err" };
-- Log everything of level "info" and higher (that is, all except "debug" messages)
-- to prosody.log
{ levels = { min = "info" }, to = "file", timestamps = "%s", filename = "/var/log/prosody/prosody.log" };
}

pidfile = "/var/run/prosody.pid"
--run_as_root = true -- Are you crazy? Prosody doesn't need root access!
daemonize = true
--umask = "027"

----------- Virtual hosts -----------
-- You need to add a VirtualHost entry for each domain you wish Prosody to serve.
-- Settings under each VirtualHost entry apply *only* to that host.

VirtualHost "localhost"
VirtualHost "amigas.ru"
-- enabled = false -- Remove this line to enable this host

-- Assign this host a certificate for TLS, otherwise it would use the one
-- set in the global section (if any).
-- Note that old-style SSL on port 5223 only supports one certificate, and will always
-- use the global one.
ssl = {
key = "/usr/local/etc/prosody/certs/amigas.ru.key";
certificate = "/usr/local/etc/prosody/certs/amigas.ru.crt";
}

------ Components ------
-- You can specify components to add hosts that provide special services,
-- like multi-user conferences, and transports.
-- For more information on components, see http://prosody.im/doc/components

---Set up a MUC (multi-user chat) room server on conference.example.com:
Component "conference.amigas.ru" "muc"

-- Set up a SOCKS5 bytestream proxy for server-proxied file transfers:
--Component "proxy.example.com" "proxy65"

---Set up an external component (default component port is 5347)
--
-- External components allow adding various services, such as gateways/
-- transports to other networks like ICQ, MSN and Yahoo. For more info
-- see: http://prosody.im/doc/components#adding_an_external_component
--
--Component "gateway.example.com"
-- component_secret = "password"

Добавляем строчку в rc.conf:
echo prosody_enable="NO" >> /etc/rc.conf
"NO" - нужно для того чтобы отключить автозапуск, тк мне не удалось заставить запускаться просоди в качестве "демона" при старте системы.

Запускаю Prosody вручную:
prosodyctl start

Далее добавляем пользователей с помощью prosodyctl:
prosodyctl - Manage a Prosody server
Usage: /usr/local/bin/prosodyctl COMMAND [OPTIONS]
Where COMMAND may be one of:
adduser JID
Create the specified user account in Prosody
passwd JID
Set the password for the specified user account in Prosody
deluser JID
Permanently remove the specified user account from Prosody
start
Start Prosody
stop
Stop a running Prosody server
restart
Restart a running Prosody server
status
Reports the running status of Prosody
Тут ничего сложного нет.
Ах да....и не забудте прописать в днс сервере запись "conference.youdomain.ru", и srv- записи для общения с людьми в жаббере из других доменов.
