I updated the software on my server from Debian's backports -
previously, I had been on 19.08-2, and I am now on 19.09.1-1~bpo10+1.
Unfortunately it seems some serious changes have taken place as I can
no longer connect any clients to my account, or log in to the
administrative interface. Normally I would ask on the ejabberd chatroom
about problems like this but I am without means to access it - I can't
even find a public server on which I can reach it.

ejabberd seems to take a long time to start, and when it does, it logs
rather a lot! I have put the ejabberd and error logs in pastebin at:


Short of trying to roll back to 19.08-2, how do I get it working again?
