mod_admin_telnet Admin Console

It is possible to reload the configuration, enable or disable a module, and take a look at Prosody's internals using mod_admin_telnet.


mod_admin_telnet allows a telnet connection to be made to the Prosody server. More detailed information is available.

By default the telnet console can only be accessed from the same machine as Prosody. Because there is no authentication, it should not be enabled on servers that may be accessed by untrusted users.
