Limit number of participants in muc without authentication?


I know we can limit the number of participants in a conference with but that assumes we have enabled authentication right?

I presume each user must authenticate before joining a conference, but what about non-authenticated guest users, does the mod_muc_max_occupants.lua module also count them towards the max number allowed?

Is it possible to limit the participants even when secure domain/authentication is not enabled?


No, this module just counts the number of participants in the room. Authentication does not matter.

Thanks for the quick reply @damencho
