Do a clean start of ejabberd on the host where it's failing and attach
the relevant bit of ejabberd logs.
To do this:
1) Ensure no erlang processes are running (`pgrep beam` and kill them,
if any), also run
# epmd -kill
just in case (this is the Erlang port-mapping daemon).
2) Delete ejabberd logs (under /var/log/ejabberd).
3) Start it using
# invoke-rc.d ejabberd start
# /etc/init.d/ejabberd start
If it fails, check this:
1) Do you have a beam or beam.smp process running?
If yes, attach the output of
$ ps ax | grep beam
2) In any case, attach the logs created in /var/log/ejabberd
Otherwise dealing with your problem would be plain guessing.
