Hey there, im a student and think it would be really cool to have a chat 
server for the students. I have looked into this and downloaded a host 
server called prosody. I can't actually figure out how to use this 
software yet so it would be great if you could help. I would also love to 
use converse as the chat client. It would be great if you could help.
Cheers, Ben

Hi Ben

One of the worst ways you can ask an online community for help is to be vague.

It sounds like you're not really trying and as if you want other people to do
the work for you.

I'm not saying this is the case, but that's the way it comes across. Which is
why you have to be very specific when you ask for help.

In other words, you have to first do some actual work and prove that you've
done it.

The way you prove it, is by being very specific about your problem and to
explain the different ways in which you tried to fix it. This generally
requires that you've actually tried to install/set-up/use the software, 
read the documentation and searched the web for answers

If you've done all those things and are still stuck with something specific,
then you can write a detailed description of the problem and how you've tried
to tackle it. Until then, you're unlikely to get help.

Good luck
JC

Whoops, sorry then
I have looked through all of the examples and instructions but its not 
making much sense at all to me.
I guess that I don’t really understand how it works. What I need probably 
is a step-by-step instead of an if-you-want-to approach
It would be great if you could help but I understand if you can't
Cheers, Ben

Hi Ben, 

This is your global step by step : 
Optional 0) Setup DNS records for XMPP 
1) Choose an XMPP server (Openfire, ejabberd, prosody, ...). ConverseJS 
require a BOSH server, OpenFire Bosh implementation is buggy, don't use 
it, Punjab BOSH server can do the job if your server don't. 
2) Setup the XMPP server and make it works with a "classic" XMPP client 
(PSI, Jitsi, gajim, Spark...) 
3) Setup the Bosh server, test it with a classic client that can do HTTP 
connection like Spark 
4) Create a web page with ConverseJS 
5) Connect ConverseJS to your Bosh server 
6) Chat 

Understand that ConverseJS is at the end of the process, start with Step 1
first and come back here when you have a problem with step 4-6 :). 

Best regards,
