 We're running Openfire / Pidgin on a Ubuntu machine.

 Disabling plugins save for XMPP:

 The only information I found is in
 [https://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/9152 Ticket 9152] and
 [https://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/11298 Ticket 11298]. When I deleted
 all libraries from /usr/lib/purple-2/ except for libjabber.so and
 libxmpp.so and rebooted our server, the libraries came right back. What am
 I doing wrong? Is it an option to follow
 these instructions] to recompile Pidgin without the other protocols, or is
 it too late? Our server is being used and is in production. I need to make
 it so that our staff has no ability to use other chat systems (Facebook,
 etc) except for our intranet's Pidgin.

 Enabling full chat logging:

 Best as I can tell, the only place where the logs are stored are on the
 local machine in
 Is this the only way that we can access employee chat logs? In the big
 picture, we need to archive the chat logs, but I don't know how to do it.
 Any assistance, or built-in mechanism, would be fantastic.
