PHP 4.1.2 isn't any usable for sure when you run public webhosting
services. It may be safe but nothing else. I'm not sure for the other
things right now.

OK, I can run ejabberdctl from the install dir, this is no problem. If
this is intended, I can very well live with it. And I don't care for
-[s]name, if it's true that this only affects clustering.

But it doesn't work right now for a database dump. Sorry, I have no idea
about Erlang, don't even understand the language's syntax rules or their
meaning. But it might have been the case someone knows about the bug I
reported and had a solution for it or would even have accepted this to
be a bug.

I'll continue to try it on my own, maybe I'll understand ejabebrdctl one
day and can find the bug myself. Maybe it's fixed until then.
