How to make eJabberd XMPP Server work? (in droplet with nginx/php/maridb/tls already running)

I already have a droplet running Nginx/Php/Maridb with TLS(https). It works just fine. Then i tried to install eJabberd XMPP Server in the same droplet using this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-ejabberd-xmpp-server-on-ubuntu The installation works fine. I run “service ejabberd status” and it says it’s running, BUT it doesn’t work. I can not open the http://(or https://)<my droplet ip>:5280/admin or 5222 or 5223… It just doesn’t return anything. Am i doing something wrong here?

– after “sudo netstat -plutn”:

Hello,

The service seems to be already listening on both ports 5280 and 5222.

This means that it is most likely your firewall that is blocking the connections.

You need to allow the traffic to those two ports. The exact command would depend on the firewall that you are using, for example, if you are using ufw it would be:

ufw allow 5222
ufw allow 5280

Best,

Bobby
