I've installed ejabberd on Ubuntu 14.04 (using the distro package) but from
time of installation it has always immediately crashed.

It seems the error is:
# ejabberdctl live
{error_logger,{{2016,7,19},{4,56,59}},"Protocol: ~tp: register/listen
error: ~tp~n",["inet_tcp",econnrefused]}

I've googled and found suggestions like:
- Check the hostname is resolvable (it is, in /etc/hosts and DNS)
- Check /var/lib/ejabberd/.erlang.cookie is owned by the ejabberd user (it
- Check nothing else is listening on port 4369 (nothing is)

What else could I check? The Ubuntu version is 2.1.11-1ubuntu2.1 which
seems very out of date. Is a newer version likely to avoid the problem?

Thank you in advance.
