CONFERENCE FAILED: conference.videobridgeNotAvailable

Hello All,

I tried setting up Jitsi Meet on my server and the result is https://jitsimeet.wespher.com/

Its the same homepage as jitsimeet, but when i try creating room it gives me 404.

Please help.

Hi there,

How did you configure your web server?

Hi Saghul,

I basically cloned the git repo https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet

And then did npm install and then make

I am having centos7 server.

And didnt got proper instructions for server setup.

So i tried manual installation from here https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/manual-install.md

Can you please suggest what can be the issue.

It’s not clear to me if you followed the manual installation instructions or not. If you did, how does your nginx configuration look like?

The manual installation process is quite daunting, any chance you could use Docker? https://github.com/jitsi/docker-jitsi-meet I’d suggest our quick install, but you are on CentOS and we don’t provide packages for it, so you can either do the manual install or use our Docker setup.

Is docker free to use ?? And how can i install on that? Are there any proper instructions for that?

I followed the installation instruction https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/manual-install.md till “Install nginx” and my ngix config file is

server_names_hash_bucket_size 64;

server {
listen 443;
# tls configuration that is not covered in this guide
# we recommend the use of https://certbot.eff.org/
server_name jitsi.wespher.com;
# set the root
root /srv/jitsi.wespher.com;
index index.html;
location ~ ^/([a-zA-Z0-9=?]+) { rewrite ^/(.*) / break;
}
location / {
ssi on;
}
# BOSH, Bidirectional-streams Over Synchronous HTTP
# https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BOSH_(protocol)
location /http-bind {
proxy_pass http://localhost:5280/http-bind;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
}
}

I dont get where to download Jitsi Videobridge.

Let’s take a step back here.

You have chosen the hardest path by far. This will only lead to frustration on your initial steps with Jitsi, which is not good!

Here is my suggestion: start with a clean Debian system and use our quick install: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/quick-install.md

After you get a bit used to it you can migrate to CentOS, if that is your rostro of choice. Now, since we don’t provide packages for it you’d need to either do the manual install or use Docker. I suggest the latter since it’s a lot easier to update and maintain. Docker is a free and open source container technology: https://www.docker.com/ we provide a prebuilt set of containers which you can deploy onto your server: https://github.com/jitsi/docker-jitsi-meet

Okay thanks.

So how cna i start with docker? Where should i clone this https://github.com/jitsi/docker-jitsi-meet

Because first step was * Create a .env file by copying and adjusting env.example .

So i should clone the repo somewhere right?

Correct, you need to clone the repo and follow the instructions there. I suggest you first follow some Docker tutorial to get yourself acquainted with it.

Hi Saghul,

I purchased debian server and tried installation on it.

But i am getting error CONFERENCE FAILED: conference.videobridgeNotAvailable

when second user joins the room.

Please suggest.

Make sure that the jitsi videobridge is running. Try sudo systemctl restart jitsi-videobridge

Hi Saghul,

It worked by restarting jicofo.

Thanks a lot for all your help. :slight_smile:
