I want to run my own XMPP server.
I want to be able to chat with other XMPP users (no matter which provider they use), using a JID under my own domain.
- it needs to be Free Software (FLOSS)
- it needs to be compilable on GNU/Linux (I’m using CentOS, if it matters)
Besides that, I hope to find a server that fullfils my expectations as much as possible:
After installation, it should just work out of the box, or requiring only minimal configuration. Primarily, I don’t want to have to manually do something to secure the server (the configuration should have sensible/secure defaults, there should be no patches I’d have to apply, etc.).
I will be the only user (maybe using several JIDs), so there is no need for multi-user handling, registration, outgoing spam protection, …. It would be nice if there were a server that considers (or is focussed on) such a use case (because the developers could spend their effort on other areas), but I guess any server would do.
The server should be (as far as possible) standards-compliant (following XEPs).
