The performance issues has been identified and solved! This combined with moving to a new server with new hardware, upgrade of ejabberd to latest version, version 20.07, will probably give us a much more robust service going forward. Thanks for your patience!
Since we upgraded the server to Ejabberd 20.01 we have had some issues with the database. This is being worked on, but since we have a huge DB it takes some time. In the meantime we will have instability until we have ironed out the issues. Sorry for this, but hopefully when this is done we will get a more stable service (fingers crossed).
Hello, we have migrated to use of Lets Encrypt certificates today. Please report any errors!
It seems that we have found the spamming accounts on the Jabber Norway server and these has been blocked now. This looks to have seased the attack from our server and jabber.org has lifted the block.
Hello all, we are now cleaning up all the spam accounts and it is looking much better. There will soon be a way to register accounts again but in the meantime if you wan an account please send a message to email@example.com (email+xmpp) or firstname.lastname@example.org (xmpp). Sorry about the inconvenience.
Sorry, but have today had issues with Ejabberd – it would not start after a normal service restart. Due to having a really horrible Internet connection during my vacation on Sicily in Italy resolving it took a long time.
I ended up reinstalling and recompiling Ejabberd and now it seems to be back in service.
Very sorry about this and the trouble this has caused.
We are planning to upgrade our server with a newer version of Ubuntu, new version of ejabberd and set up a test for transports from Spectrum. Obviously we will need to have some dowtime for these changes, and the longest of these will be when we upgrade the server OS.
The hopes are that this will create more, faster and stable services for you. Pending successful tests we can provision more transport to other networks supported (in varying degree) by Spectrum, like for instance ICQ, AIM, MSN, Facebook, Twitter, Gadu-Gadu, og SIMPLE. IRC is supported directly by ejabberd, but maybe we should look at the functionality and performance on the Spectrum implementation. The best upside is that the Spectrum transport implementation should be much less resource demanding than the Python based transports we are running on now.
More information will come when we get closer to the changes, some more preparations will need to be done first.
We have had some issues with the contact form lately and we are not able to see your e-mail addresses and we are therefore unable to answer you. Please ask again in the comments section of this posting if you are missing an answer to a question.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
We have to bring down our servers to do some software upgrades. Downtime estimated at a couple of hours.
Sorry for the inconvinience.
We have been experiencing some instability today, the ejabberd service has just stopper without much error message a few times. I am currently investigating this and hope to find a solution soon.
Sorry for the problems this is causing.
