Hello I just loaded the turnkey-ejabberd-11.1-lucid-x86-ovf into my VMWare Host and went through the initial setup. However I am having troubles creating a new chat room via the address or All I get is Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". What did I miss in the install? I even added an entry in the hosts file(/etc/hosts : appliance_ip Thank you in advance for any help on this.

Looks like this post slipped through the cracks, so sorry about that.

I'm guessing that you either resolved it or gave up by now. But just in case you didn't, the first thing I'd check is networking. Make sure you are using either "host only" or "bridged" networking for your VM and also check the appliance IP from the config console screen (the blue screen that should display on boot of your appliance).

Beyond that I'm probably not much help but if you want any further guidance I'm happy to try so please post back.

IIRC, you need to browse to the server using the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name), for example:

I updated the appliance page with some more information regarding chat.XMPP_DOMAIN and notes on connecting to the server with pidgin.

But ultimately it will depend on how much load you put on it (ie how many connections etc). I have no idea how you would find out other than trial and error, although you could try researching/searching/asking on the relevant (jabber/speeqe) forum(s)/mailing list(s)/web sites (or even just having a good google around). You could always try it and if it doesn't work then you could migrate it to a larger instance. TKLBAM makes migration between different size instances easy.

Another option may be to download the ISO or VM image and install to a VM with similar specs to a micro instance and check it out that way.
