The perfect ejabberd server setup using ansible
After having heard about the theoretical part of a perfect XMPP server setup in Holger's talk, Linus will now show us how to do this in practice with ejabberd. For this purpose we're going to use the configuration management tool ansible, which will automate the setup process. This makes it much easier to move your setup to a different machine or reinstalling it. After having a look into how the ansible scripts work and what they do on the server, we'll also do a live demonstration.
The ansible scripts cover the setup of ejabberd, Let's Encrypt-certificates, an SQL database with MySQL/MariaDB or PostgreSQL, HTTP File Upload and ejabberd admin interface with reverse proxy using nginx and sslh for multiplexing XMPP/XMPPS/HTTPS on a single port (that can be useful if you're behind a firewall). You can also enable nextcloud authentication, but we won't go into many details on that topic.
