Ejabberd : Because everyone seem to use this as a Jabber server
Erlang : Because Ejabberd chose this as language to code
erl_crash.dump - Every time I tried to start the server, it crashed and wrote the crash dump to this file. grrrrrrrrrrr. Who in the world will understand the crash dump.
Googled everywhere, and found a document mentioning the possible reasons for the crash dump. http://www.erlang.org/doc/apps/erts/crash_dump.html
As per the document, the most common reason for Kernel PID terminated seems to be "The application controller may have shut down for a number of reasons, the most usual being that the node name of the distributed Erlang node is already in use"
Hmmm... Then I checked into the folder "/var/lib/ejabberd/". It had two files only.
A request to someone who is more into ejabberd and erlang. Could you please explain the reason. ??
:P aich. ;) . This is a called a WINK approach.
