Build From Source Errors


Hello everyone,
i have some problem building jitsi from source.
I have done the quick install in this way:
echo ‘deb stable/’ >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jitsi-stable.list wget -qO - | apt-key add -
apt update
apt install jitsi-meet

on ubuntu 16.04 and apache2
The installation works fine.

in /var/www/html
git clone
cd jitsi-meet (i have change the permissions chmod 777)
npm install

in /etc/apache2/sites-available/localhost.conf
i have change /usr/share/jitsi-meet with /var/www/html/jitsi-meet
and in apache2.con :

<Directory /var/www/html/jitsi-meet/>
      Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
      AllowOverride None
      Require all granted

i can see all the modification i’m doing but jitsi is broken and this is the error i can see on the console:

i have a lot of errors on /var/log/jitsi/
var/log/jitsi# tail -20 jvb.log

someone can tell me if the procedure i’m doing is correct ?
What other files i need to modify ?
like confige.js ?

Thank you all


When you were installing it as domain you entered localhost?


on my personal ubuntu 16.04 ,
but installing the new version from source on azure or amazon ec2 is all ok ,
but i have some issues with ICE fails:

is only my problem or is a general issue ?

thank you


Have you done this


yes, i have read about that and add both the ip but nothing has changed.
what else can be ?
Thank you


What about the port forwarding?


i have open all the port, 443, 4443, 10000-20000


You had added the addresses but had you restarted jvb? webrtc-internals shows that still it advertises only the internal address:


I have restarted everything but now is worst,

it crash when i try the connection about two users.

Now inside the file /etc/jitsi/videobridge/ i have three rows:

is this right ?

thank you


Yes, if for local and public you had put the ip-addresses there.
Check your jvb log when restarting it /vat/log/jitsi/jvb.log. You will see why it doesn’t start.

Your first error in the logs is videobridgeNotAvailable, so apparently jvb had not been started.


i don’t see any errors on jvb.log

but restarting jcofo on his logfile i can see something strange:
Jicofo 2018-08-29 13:05:11.990 SEVERE: [37] org.jitsi.jicofo.JitsiMeetConferenceImpl.log() Can not invite participant – no bridge available.

how can i resolve this one if this is the problem ?
i have reboot the server and all the process too.
nothing has change

Thanks for your patience


You have < and > around your ip addresses, can you remove them and try again, this is what I saw on mobile, will check again when i get to the PC.


thank you very mutch.
that was the problem.
i thought it was normal to have them around the ip.

thank you again
best regards
