Check if it is Working

The server is started already but how do you know if it is really working and there were no problems. Have a look in the logs/ directory. There should be a few files in there:

 $ ls -l logs/
total 40K
-rw-r--r-- 1 20K 2009-02-03 21:48 tigase-console.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 16K 2009-02-03 21:48 tigase.log.0
-rw-r--r-- 1   0 2009-02-03 21:48 tigase.log.0.lck
-rw-r--r-- 1   6 2009-02-03 21:48

2 first files are the most interesting for us: tigase-console.log and tigase.log.0. The first one contains very limited information and only the most important entries. Have a look inside and check if there are any WARNING or SEVERE entries. If not everything should be fine.

Now you can connect with a Jabber (XMPP) client of your choice. The first thing to do would be registering the first account - the admin account from your file: Refer to your client documentation how to register a new account.
