1. Install Prosody
2. Open Prosody's config file, and enable
mod_bosh (search for
"bosh" and uncomment it by removing
– from before it)
3. Create an account on Prosody, as described here: Creating accounts
4. Edit web server config as described here: Setting up BOSH: Proxying requests
5. Download strophe.js and extract it somewhere on your web server
6. The strophe examples by default connect to
/xmpp-httpbind. Edit the
.js files in the examples directory to change from
/http-bind in the first lines.
The crossdomain example requires this: Setting up BOSH: Cross-domain requests (CORS)
The prebind example requires setup described at the top in the
And that's it. Strophe examples should now be working without issues.
Note: Prosody by default disallows plain text passwords over non-encrypted connections. If you are using a non-default authentication backend in Prosody, you might run into this. You can use the consider_bosh_secure or allow_unencrypted_plain_auth config options, though ideally you should set up encryption (SSL BOSH port defaults to 5281, while non-SSL is 5280).
