Jitsi Meet is a free and open-source voice and the videoconferencing platform provides an instant messaging application for the web platform, Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, and Android.
If you need a fully functional Jitsi Meet system to be run on any of your servers, our expert teams are available always to set up it for you. Please Contact Us right now to get it done.
First we have to check that if the system is up to date and required packages are installed.
sudo apt-get update
In order to ensure apt repositories served via HTTPS, run
apt install apt-transport-https
Jitsi Meet requires dependencies from Ubuntu’s Universe package repository. To confirm this
sudo apt-add-repository universe sudo apt-get update
Setup a fully qualified domain name for the server (FQDN)
hostnamectl set-hostname server.example.com
Next we have to add Jitsi Meet repository in the server by:
curl https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi-key.gpg.key | sudo sh -c 'gpg --dearmor > /usr/share/keyrings/jitsi-keyring.gpg' echo 'deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/jitsi-keyring.gpg] https://download.jitsi.org stable/' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jitsi-stable.list > /dev/null sudo apt-get update
If you are using a firewall then we need to allow these ports in the firewall
sudo ufw allow 80/tcp
sudo ufw allow 443/tcp
sudo ufw allow 4443/tcp
sudo ufw allow 10000/udp
sudo ufw allow 22/tcp
sudo ufw enable
Check the firewall status by
sudo ufw status verbose
Install Jitsi Meet
sudo apt-get install jitsi-meet
In this step, they will ask for hostname and SSL (if you are using paid SSL then you can give the location of cert and key file, or otherwise you can generate let’s encrypt free SSL).
Once installation completed, we can access the Jitsi Meet application by
Test the setup by creating a new meeting and invite someone to this meeting to ensure that setup is working properly. In order to set this Jitsi Meet server work with the mobile application, change the server URL option in the Jitsi Meet app installed on your phone from google play to the https://server.example.com. So you can connect the mobile app through your Jitsi Meet server.
