Prosody issue: Prosody was unable to find configuration file


Prosody was unable to find configuration file despite the fact that the file prosody.cfg.lug is well present in /etc/prosody/

I detected the issue as I can’t set set password for a meeting and anyone is able to create a meeting without login, despite appropriate configuration of the prosody for the purpose
according to the instructions available.

used: prosodyctl check
here the output of ls of /etc/prosody
certs conf.avail conf.d migrator.cfg.lua prosody.cfg.lua README

Thanks for your help.


This sounds like a permissions issue.Make sure prosody actually has access to the file.

Thanks Freddie.
Problem is solved.

sudo prosodyctl check config
Checking config...

All checks passed, congratulations!
