Thanks for that, it still doesn't run but now it is complaining about a
syntax error in the config file now. But it doesn't give a line # or
anything. here is the only output i get when running ejabberd now.

% Users that have admin access.  Add line like one of the following
after you
% will be successfully registered on server to get admin access:
%{acl, admin, {user, "aleksey"}}.
%{acl, admin, {user, "ermine"}}.

% Blocked users:
%{acl, blocked, {user, "test"}}.

% Local users:
{acl, local, {user_regexp,""}}.

% Another examples of ACLs:
%{acl, jabberorg, {server, "jabber.org"}}.
%{acl, aleksey, {user, "aleksey", "jabber.ru"}}.
%{acl, test, {user_regexp, "^test"}}.
%{acl, test, {user_glob, "test*"}}.

% Only admins can use configuration interface:
{access, configure, [{allow, admin}]}.

% Every username can be registered via in-band registration:
{access, register, [{allow, all}]}.

% After successful registration user will get message with following
% and body:
% {"Welcome!",
%  "Welcome to the FAC Jabber Service.  "
% Replace them with 'none' if you don't want to send such message:
{welcome_message, none}.

% List of people who will get notifications about registered users
%{registration_watchers, ["admin1 at localhost",

% Only non-blocked users can use c2s connections:
{access, c2s, [{deny, blocked},
               {allow, all}]}.

% Set shaper with name "normal" to limit traffic speed to 1000B/s
{shaper, normal, {maxrate, 1000}}.

% Set shaper with name "fast" to limit traffic speed to 50000B/s
{shaper, fast, {maxrate, 50000}}.

% For all users except admins used "normal" shaper
{access, c2s_shaper, [{none, admin},
                      {normal, all}]}.

% For all S2S connections used "fast" shaper
{access, s2s_shaper, [{fast, all}]}.

% Admins of this server are also admins of MUC service:
{access, muc_admin, [{allow, admin}]}.

% All users are allowed to use MUC service:
{access, muc, [{allow, all}]}.

% This rule allows access only for local users:
{access, local, [{allow, local}]}.
