Downtimes Features Maintenance

Prosody 0.9 with IPv6 and Web Admin

We upgraded the Jabber server from Prosody 0.8 to 0.9 today! This brings a lot of new features, I just want to name IPv6 support and a Web Admin interface for our Jabber hosting customers. :-)

After migrating from ejabberd to Prosody we had to dump IPv6, which is now coming back. We are very happy about that and cannot wait how statistics will change after we support it again. ;-)

Also we installed several new modules with some new features.

A big thank you to Matt, the chief maintainer of Prosody! :-) The server upgrade only took about 20 minutes until the server was up and running again. Without him this would not have been possible. We run some special configs which had to be taken care of.

Downtimes Maintenance

IPv6 reconfiguration

Since our provider now supports native IPv6 (including reverse DNS) we changed our IPv6 configuration and now no longer use an IPv6 Tunnel Broker. Therefore we had two short service outages today to reboot the machine and activate the new settings.

If you are using IPv6 you might have to flush your DNS (or wait up to 24 hours from now) to get the correct IPs back from DNS.
