Firefox 3.0.6 not able to read Cookie (breaks MUCkl/JWChat with HTTP Polling)

Firefox as of version 3.0.6 seems to not allow reading cookies from HTTP headers when doing AJAX requests. As a consequence JSJaC’s HTTP Polling backend can’t work correctly anymore and breaks usage of MUCkl and JWChat with this version of Firefox. If your site is affected please consider switching to HTTP Binding (aka BOSH) which […]

If your ejabberd seems to leak memory it might result out of this bug in erlang’s mnesia database. You can easily find out by starting a remote shell to your running ejabberd and whatch results for the following command: lists:foldl(fun(Tab, Acc) -> ets:info(Tab, memory) * 8 + Acc end, 0, ets:all()). The bug is fixed […]

ejabberd mysql drivers for debian and ubuntu

Debian (and ubuntu) packages for ejabberd don’t contain drivers for mysql. If you want to connect your ejabberd to mysql you need to get those drivers separately from the external ejabberd modules repository and compile them on your own. For convenience I’ve built a debian package containing the precompiled modules: ejabberd-mysql-20090114_1-2_all.deb Note: this package is […]
