Prosody is a server for Jabber/XMPP written in Lua. It aims to be
easy to use and light on resources. For developers, it aims to give a
flexible system on which to rapidly develop added functionality or
rapidly prototype new protocols.

Before you can run prosody you'll need to look in README.SBo.

Something like this will suffice for most systems:

  groupadd -g 274 prosody
  useradd -u 274 -g 274 -s /sbin/nologin -d /var/lib/prosody prosody

Feel free to use a different uid and gid if desired, but 274 is
recommended to avoid conflicts with other stuff from
