Considering the weird jabber implementation in Apple Server 3, ejabberd is a true wealth. And its well documented contrary to Apple's software(s). The only things missing are native SSL support and an autostart feature. I did achieve this by an Applescript as a login item:

do shell script "/Applications/ejabberd-13.12/bin/ejabberdctl start"

No PPC version ?

Giving the product ONE star because it doesn't support the legacy PPC, as Apple no longer does, is an abuse of the rating system. The developer is clear about their CPU support and giving it 1 star is simply wrong. What you should have done was left a comment objecting to the lack of PPC support but not rated the software's quality down because of it.


Look better elsewhere don't blame somebody for not supporting a platform that's out if trend.
