Installing Prosody is quite straightforward in most cases. Prosody is available for many of the major operating systems.
If we have no package for yours, you should be able to install using the source package, see Source below.
Binary packages are available for all current Debian and Ubuntu releases.
To install the version of Prosody available in your distribution's official repositories, simply run:
sudo apt-get install prosody
To keep up to date with the latest (and greatest!) Prosody releases, we recommend that you also add our repository, as distributions may lag behind the latest version a bit.
