Well that was a good article, but there is another solution worth a try:


Jive Messenger: http://www.jivesoftware.org/messenger/


It is made on java and works great on FreeBSD, Windows and Linux, the installation is 5 seconds, you got a web interface, a lot of settings to play with, and you can use a lot of DB for data storage.


Moving from one server to another is as easy as copy the DB to the new box and reinstall.


And it is open source.


I migrate from Jabberd to this one and i cannot be more happy

    Fine ! The problem is, Java isn't... Practically, this means that 1) you can't get Java to run natively on certain platforms (*BSD for amd64) and 2) you can't be assured that Sun won't revoke its license for a currently supported platform (read "the Java Trap" by Richard Stallman)

    Well, Jive is indeed a jabber server. Do not forget that jabberd is a reference implementation (but a very good one)
