 BH> 1.  I start the server with the snippet from the documentation:
 BH> erl -pa /var/lib/ejabberd/ebin \ -sname ejabberd \ -s ejabberd \
 BH> -ejabberd config \"/etc/ejabberd/ejabberd.cfg\" \ log_path
 BH> \"/var/log/ejabberd/ejabberd.log\" \ -sasl sasl_error_logger
 BH> \{file,\"/var/log/ejabberd/sasl.log\"\} \ -mnesia dir
 BH> \"/var/lib/ejabberd/spool\"

 BH> but after that there is some type of console and I can't just

 BH> but I guess there is an other solution ?

Just add an -detached option :)

 BH> 2.  I tried to run the ejabberdctl tool but it crashes instantly:
 BH> :~/ejabberd/tools # ./ejabberdctl {"init terminating in
 BH> do_boot",{undef,[{ejabberd_ctl,start,[]},{init,start_it,1},{init,start_em,1}
 BH> ]}}

 BH> Crash dump was written to: erl_crash.dump init terminating in
 BH> do_boot ()

 BH> and leaves a 200k dump file ;)
Run it from directory where ejabberd .beam files reside, or add
"-pa /var/lib/ejabberd/ebin" inside this script.
