[ejabberd] Ejabberd Problems

Hello Kirk,

I tried that and it did not work. It seams I may have a few more 
problems than originally though.

When I do: sudo ejabberdctl start

I get the following error:

"RPC failed on the node ejabberd at Proxy: nodedown"

Here is my config file: Note* The host name matches hostname -s

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

%%%
%%%     Debian ejabberd configuration file
%%%     This config must be in UTF-8 encoding
%%%
%%% The parameters used in this configuration file are explained in more 
detail
%%% in the ejabberd Installation and Operation Guide.
%%% Please consult the Guide in case of doubts, it is available at
%%% /usr/share/doc/ejabberd/guide.html

%%%   ===================================
%%%   OVERRIDE OPTIONS STORED IN DATABASE

%%
%% Override global options (shared by all ejabberd nodes in a cluster).
%%
%%override_global.

%%
%% Override local options (specific for this particular ejabberd node).
%%
%%override_local.

%%
%% Remove the Access Control Lists before new ones are added.
%%
%%override_acls.


%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
%% Options which are set by Debconf and managed by ucf

%% Admin user
{acl, admin, {user, "maximum", "Proxy"}}.

%% Hostname
{hosts, ["Proxy"]}.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

%%% This configuration file contains Erlang terms.
%%% In case you want to understand the syntax, here are the concepts:
%%%
%%%  - The character to comment a line is %
%%%
%%%  - Each term ends in a dot, for example:
%%%      override_global.
%%%
%%%  - A tuple has a fixed definition, its elements are
%%%    enclosed in {}, and separated with commas:
%%%      {loglevel, 4}.
%%%
%%%  - A list can have as many elements as you want,
%%%    and is enclosed in [], for example:
%%%      [http_poll, web_admin, tls]
%%%
%%%  - A keyword of ejabberd is a word in lowercase.
%%%    The strings are enclosed in "" and can have spaces, dots...
%%%      {language, "en"}.
%%%      {ldap_rootdn, "dc=example,dc=com"}.
%%%
%%%  - This term includes a tuple, a keyword, a list and two strings:
%%%      {hosts, ["jabber.example.net", "im.example.com"]}.
%%%


%%%   =========
%%%   DEBUGGING

%%
%% loglevel: Verbosity of log files generated by ejabberd.
%% 0: No ejabberd log at all (not recommended)
%% 1: Critical
%% 2: Error
%% 3: Warning
%% 4: Info
%% 5: Debug
%%
{loglevel, 4}.

%%
%% watchdog_admins: If an ejabberd process consumes too much memory,
%% send live notifications to those Jabber accounts.
%%
%%{watchdog_admins, ["bob at example.com"]}.


%%%   ================
%%%   SERVED HOSTNAMES

%%
%% hosts: Domains served by ejabberd.
%% You can define one or several, for example:
%% {hosts, ["example.net", "example.com", "example.org"]}.
%%
%% (This option is defined by debconf earlier)
%% {hosts, ["localhost"]}.

%%
%% route_subdomains: Delegate subdomains to other Jabber server.
%% For example, if this ejabberd serves example.org and you want
%% to allow communication with a Jabber server called im.example.org.
%%
%%{route_subdomains, s2s}.


%%%   ===============
%%%   LISTENING PORTS

%%
%% listen: Which ports will ejabberd listen, which service handles it
%% and what options to start it with.

%%%   ==============
%%%   AUTHENTICATION

%%
%% auth_method: Method used to authenticate the users.
%% The default method is the internal.
%% If you want to use a different method,
%% comment this line and enable the correct ones.
%%
{auth_method, internal}.

%%
%% Authentication using external script
%% Make sure the script is executable by ejabberd.
%%
%%{auth_method, external}.
%%{extauth_program, "/path/to/authentication/script"}.

%%
%% Authentication using ODBC
%% Remember to setup a database in the next section.
%%
%%{auth_method, odbc}.

%%
%% Authentication using PAM
%%
%%{auth_method, pam}.
%%{pam_service, "pamservicename"}.

%%
%% Authentication using LDAP
%%
%%{auth_method, ldap}.
%%
%% List of LDAP servers:
%%{ldap_servers, ["localhost"]}.
%%
%% Encryption of connection to LDAP servers (LDAPS):
%%{ldap_encrypt, tls}.
%%
%% Port connect to LDAP server:
%%{ldap_port, 636}.
%%
%% LDAP manager:
%%{ldap_rootdn, "dc=example,dc=com"}.

%%   allow_multiple_connections: true | false
%%
%%{host_config, "public.example.org", [{auth_method, anonymous},

%%                                     {anonymous_protocol, sasl_anon}]}.
%%
%% To use both anonymous and internal authentication:
%%
%%{host_config, "public.example.org", [{auth_method, [internal, 
anonymous]}]}.


%%%   ==============
%%%   DATABASE SETUP

%% ejabberd uses by default the internal Mnesia database,
%% so you can avoid this section.
%% This section provides configuration examples in case
%% you want to use other database backends.
%% Please consult the ejabberd Guide for details about database creation.

%%
%% MySQL server:
%%
%%{odbc_server, {mysql, "server", "database", "username", "password"}}.
%%
%% If you want to specify the port:
%%{odbc_server, {mysql, "server", 1234, "database", "username", 
"password"}}.

%%
%% PostgreSQL server:
%%
%%{odbc_server, {pgsql, "server", "database", "username", "password"}}.
%%
%% If you want to specify the port:
%%{odbc_server, {pgsql, "server", 1234, "database", "username", 
"password"}}.
%%
%% If you use PostgreSQL, have a large database, and need a
%% faster but inexact replacement for "select count(*) from users"
%%
%%{pgsql_users_number_estimate, true}.

%%
%% ODBC compatible or MSSQL server:
%%
%%{odbc_server, "DSN=ejabberd;UID=ejabberd;PWD=ejabberd"}.

%%
%% Number of connections to open to the database for each virtual host
%%
%%{odbc_pool_size, 10}.

%%
%% Interval to make a dummy SQL request to keep alive the connections
%% to the database. Specify in seconds: for example 28800 means 8 hours
%%
%%{odbc_keepalive_interval, undefined}.


%%%   ===============
%%%   TRAFFIC SHAPERS

%%
%% The "normal" shaper limits traffic speed to 1.000 B/s
%%
{shaper, normal, {maxrate, 1000}}.

%%
%% The "fast" shaper limits traffic speed to 50.000 B/s
%%
{shaper, fast, {maxrate, 50000}}.


%%%   ====================
%%%   ACCESS CONTROL LISTS

%%
%% The 'admin' ACL grants administrative privileges to Jabber accounts.
%% You can put as many accounts as you want.
%%
%%{acl, admin, {user, "aleksey", "localhost"}}.
%%{acl, admin, {user, "ermine", "example.org"}}.

%%
%% Blocked users
%%
%%{acl, blocked, {user, "baduser", "example.org"}}.
%%{acl, blocked, {user, "test"}}.

%%
%% Local users: don't modify this line.
%%
{acl, local, {user_regexp, ""}}.

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


%%%   ============
%%%   ACCESS RULES

%% Define the maximum number of time a single user is allowed to connect:
{access, max_user_sessions, [{1000, all}]}.

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

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

%% 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}]}.

%% Only admins can send announcement messages:
{access, announce, [{allow, admin}]}.

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

%% 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}]}.

%% No username can be registered via in-band registration:
%% To enable in-band registration, replace 'deny' with 'allow'
% (note that if you remove mod_register from modules list then users 
will not
% be able to change their password as well as register).
% This setting is default because it's more safe.
{access, register, [{deny, all}]}.

%% Everybody can create pubsub nodes
{access, pubsub_createnode, [{allow, all}]}.


%%%   ================
%%%   DEFAULT LANGUAGE

%%
%% language: Default language used for server messages.
%%
{language, "en"}.
