Allow guest without authentification

Hi, I installed jisty on my sever and It works fine.
Unfortunatly, I have problems when I try to secure domain.
I followed this tutorial

What I want to do is :

  • an user need to log in to create a new room --> It’s OK a login is asked
  • guest has only to clic on the room link to access it without any authentication. --> KO, even if the room is opened by a logged user, a login and password is asked for the guest.

After the jitsi installation , I modified this three files :

I changed the following :

VirtualHost ""
    authentication = "internal_plain"

And I added the following at the end of the file :

VirtualHost ""
        authentication = "anonymous"
        allow_empty_token = true
        c2s_require_encryption = false

I changed this in the /etc/jitsi/meet/ file

    hosts: {
        // XMPP domain.
        domain: '',
        guest: '',

And I added this line in the /etc/jitsi/jicofo/ file

When an user clic for the first time on this link :, he can log in and the room is opened.
If another user clic on the same link he is also asked to log in while he should be a guest.

Have I done something wrong? Did I forgot something?

Thank you for your help

Thank you it works! seems I can’t read properly a tutorial…

I have done what you suggest here, but it doesn’t work. When I create a room on my server I am not asked for authentication.

It works now. I did a update of the packages and with the latest one now is OK

Hi, I have the same problem, it ask auth even when the room is already created by authentified user.
I followed this tuto :
Could you help me please ?

Having the same issue as above. I have:


- VirtualHost "jitsi.mydomain"
        authentication = "internal_hashed"


- VirtualHost "guest.jitsi.mydomain"
    authentication = "anonymous"
    allow_empty_token = true
    c2s_require_encryption = false


var config = {
    hosts: {
            domain: 'jitsi.mydomain',
            anonymousdomain: 'guest.jitsi.mydomain'



However, clicking on an invite link still gives me a login prompt, even if the host is in the meeting.

These are my jitsi versions, installed from the digitalocean image marketplace:

turns out I had added the config info to /etc/jitsi/meet/jitsi.mydomain instead of /etc/jitsi/meet/jitsi.mydomain-config.js, total user error :slight_smile:
