My server machine runs Suse 9.2: does anyone have
running Jive on Suse?
Should I use the tar or rpm distro?
While I haven’'t done it personally, I did a quick search of forums and it looks like people have successfully installed Messenger on Suse with the rpm, I would guess the tar works fine as well.
I need the server to automatically accept new account
Yes, this is configurable via the Admin Console.
I need the existing list of users to appear to anyone
who creates an account.Is this what is meant by
Yes, but out-of-box Messenger does not support the automatic addition of new users to a specified roster/group. However, the next version (1.1) of the url=http://www.jivesoftware.org/messenger/plugins.jspregistraion plugin[/url], which will be released soon, adds this functionality.
I want to use mysql for auth & db.
Yes, for databases Messenger supports MySql, Postgres, Oracle, DB2, SQLServer and HSQLDB (both embedded and external. Messenger also supports LDAP and POP server authentication.
Can Jive meet my needs as above?
Sounds like it.
Hope that helps,
