This module provides all administrative commands previously in mod_admin_telnet which is now a method of accessing the commands.

To securely access the console see mod_admin_socket.


modules_enabled = {
    -- Other modules
    "admin_shell"; -- Enable mod_admin_shell
    -- This also enables mod_admin_socket

To access the shell, run (as root / with sudo):

prosodyctl shell
