Hi @Neustradamus,
did you try to update it manually?
I would prefer to install a test-server as a vm, do a snapshot and try the update.
Write down the steps here, you have done.
If there are any problems please post them here, I think we find a solution.
If it works, and you have written down your steps, somebody can create a package and after testing it I think it can be pushed to the official repo.

Easy to update, the base is to replace 20.03 by 20.12 (except one line and add a new line in nethserver-ejabberd.spec)

Hum…too easy to be real. Upgrades are a pain with ejabberd :smiley:

@stephdl: Can you look?

The first step is to update to 20.12.

The second step is to improve the configuration file.

Thanks in advance.

good alternative for Nextcloud talk.

can you help me with update?

I tried to install rpm package from process one. But new version cant be installed, because of ejabberd-nethserver dependency requirement 20.03.
How to install new version? yum tried to upgrade existing ejabberd .

Can you help?

I installed ejabberd latest to debian buster.
All working fine, with stun/turn server and audio / video calls. Very clear and high quality video, inaff
But, offcourse, better within ns :slight_smile:

Ejabberd is just a pain to update, we release one version by year.

@stepdl am i wrong saying that the ejabberd version delivered by CentOS is… quite stale?

Ejabberd comes from processone, we import the rpm, each version brings some breaking changes with no documentation. You have to read the code to find and retrieve informations to fix your issue

:persevere: :persevere: :persevere:
The term “pain” don’t fit the crime.

And to be honest, mattermost with the jitsy gateway is far better

Dinosaurs still power our society in the 21 century - they became oil… :slight_smile:

Relatively simple to setup. I feel, that calls are quicker then in nc talk android.
