restart ejabberd

 Hi :)

How do I restart ejabberd? Each time I try I get an error (RPC failed on the node ejabberd@localhost: nodedown) and can never restart it again..

I'm thinking it might have something to do with with restarting it as root and not as the user ejabberd but I don't know how to restart it as ejabberd, it asks me for the password which I have no idea what it is.

Please help.

Didn't restart the service work?

Hi Sofia, I just restarted ejabberd in a quick test installation like this:
/etc/init.d/ejabberd restart
That seems to work for me. If it doesn't for you, did you make any changes to the appliance? Does it work inside a fresh installation?

worked for me - thanks!

I was using also the "ejabberdctl restart" which didnt do it. THANKS.

restart ejabberd

Hi Liraz,

I was using /usr/sbin/ejabberdctl stop & start instead of that - that does work :)
