Can't access /etc/jitsi/jicofo - permission denied

Hi. I’m trying to follow the instructions here for authentication:

but when I reach the Jicofo configuration step, it does not let me access that folder or edit the sip-communicator.properties file…

I’m able to access the meet folder in /etc/jitsi, but not jicofo or videobridge.

Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Are you root?

whoami

Thanks for replying. No, not root. I managed to create the file sip-communicator.properties file there although I can’t cd into the jicofo folder…!

But it says If you have installed Jicofo from the Debian package, this should go as a new ‘authentication’ section in /etc/jitsi/jicofo/jicofo.conf :

I did that too because sip-communicator.propperties file wasn’t there… I installed from Linode marketplace…
