Integrating Prosody with Diaspora

Here you will find all you need to install and set up a Prosody XMPP server integrated with your Diaspora user database. This tutorial was developed using Debain 7 but it will probably work well for all GNU Distributions. There are several steps and configurations you will need to perform, so read the instructions carefully.

Understanding

The main goal is to set up Prosody to be capable of comparing the password received by the XMPP client with the hashed password stored on your pod's Diaspora database. Diaspora's password hash is done with the bcrypt library, so we need to patch Prosody to do the same with the received password. To do so, we need to install a modified - mod_auth_sql module, available below.

In this setup Prosody will use its own SQL database to store users' data, such as friends, etc. It will connect to the Diaspora database just to compare passwords. Then two database configurations will be required.

Follow the tutorial and this should work well.

SQL

Before installing Prosody, create a database and a user for it. You can do it on the same Diaspora SQL server. Just as with Diaspora, you can choose between MySQL or PostgreSQL.

Prosody

Prosody is a modern XMPP communication server. It aims to be easy to set up and configure, and efficient with system resources. Additionally, it aims to be easy for developers to extend and to provide a flexible system on which to rapidly develop added functionality, or prototype new protocols.

Installing Prosody

To install Prosody, follow the official instructions described on their official site - - Download

Once Prosody is installed, you can proceed.

Set up prosody.cfg.lua

Here is what you need to do to this file, separated under headings:

modules_enabled

  • Disable
"saslauth"
  • Enable
"bosh"
"legacyauth"

Set up and configure SQL

The default auth method is internal and it must be replaced by sql. But sql requires configuration of SQL server, database, user and password to access Diaspora and Prosody databases.

  • Modify
authentication = "sql"
  • Add
storage = "sql"

MySQL setup

sql = { driver = "MySQL", database = "prosody_xmpp", username = "prosody_xmpp", password = "pass", host = "localhost" }
sql_dsp = { driver = "MySQL", database = "diaspora_production", username = "diaspora", password = "pass", host = "localhost" }

PostgreSQL setup

sql = { driver = "PostgreSQL", database = "prosody_xmpp", username = "prosody_xmpp", password = "pass", host = "localhost" }
sql_dsp = { driver = "PostgreSQL", database = "diaspora_production", username = "diaspora", password = "pass", host = "localhost" }
  • sql

This is the Prosody database setup in which Prosody will store users' friend lists and its own setup. The database user must have write permission on this file:

  • sql_dsp

This is the Diaspora database setup in which Prosody will search the user password. The database user only needs read permission.

Set up c2s_require_encryption

Modify:

c2s_require_encryption = true

Add to the file

VirtualHost "your POD domain.foo"

Replace your POD domain.foo with your pod's domain. This is very important!


Modify mod_auth_sql

Below you get the entire mod_auth_sql file, create a file called mod_auth_sql in the Prosody module's directory and paste the following into it:

In Debian 7 this directory is /usr/lib/prosody/modules/.

Install bcrypt Lua lib

The modified mod_auth_sql requires bcrypt lib available. To have so, ru the command below to install it:

luarocks install bcrypt

Restart Prosody

To complete the setup, just restart Prosody:

/etc/init.d/prosody restart

Testing

Just use your favorite XMMP client to connect to your Diaspora pod using your regular Diaspora account and password.
