Hello Jason, Thanks for your advice. I actually started with Debian (latest, 9 I think), and switched to Fedora because I encountered many errors during installation and just got angry. That was my first encounter with Debian and I already knew some Fedora stuff, so I figured it'll be easier for me to find the workarounds on it.
The thing is, I don't think this problem is platform-specific, it seems more like a misconfiguration to me. I tracked the issue down to a piece of code in SettingsClient.pm, lines 67-68. I don't know perl, but OpenSRF docs say that they're supposed to "return the complete set of settings as a JSON document". Adding that to the log entries screaming about problems with JSON parsing (at index 1), my guess is that I messed up some configuration file and now it's unreadable. Problem is: what file can that be? Seems to be about firstname.lastname@example.org, so maybe something with ejabberd, but ejabberd itself starts without problems and I can't find anything wrong within it's config file (ejabberd.yml)...
