Ah, that's it. Thank you.

There's no start command, and restart doesn't do it, so I guess I need
to start ejabberd first with the erl command from the documentation
before I can stop it again with ejabberdctl. What are the erl parameters
to start ejabberd without all the console output and in the background?
I have seen -detached and -noshell somewhere around. erl doesn't seem to
have a --help or manpage to tell me.
