Hi jitsi enthousiasts,
Could anyone help me to some starters information?
I have difficulty finding answers to some questions I have surfing the net.
I like to give jitsi a go for a simple project at school.
We need a videochat solution for a group of about 20 people at most chattering at the same time… Usually one lead and 10 listeners.
What I don’t understand yet about jitsi are the requirements at server level.
Would it be possible to install jitsi on a VPS with only 2 cores and 1024 MB of RAM? It is a non-desktop DEBIAN server, right now 225 MB are in use…Does it have to be a ‘dedicated’ server? Can I run other tasks on the same VPS?
-What is the formula for the amount of video chat users versus RAM and CPU speed?
-Is it possible to configure jitsi to allow a certain group of users only, and set a max number of total users? I really like the easy install tutorials i have found on the net, creating a very social ‘everyone is welcome’ server type, but seen the limits there is only speed for a few users. (If it is possible at all…) I wouldn’t like to set firewall rules for this purpose, that would be very difficult to handle in daily practical use.
-Why do I see ‘nginx’ webserver every time mentioned in those tutorials, is another lightweight webserver like ‘lighttpd’ not possible? (And it is already running at my system…)
- Some tutorials advice to install jitsi parallel to prosody, a xmpp server, but isn’t jitsi not doing the same job then? What is the difference about those 2?
Sorry…a typical noob question…
-One tutorial advices to have at least 4 GB of RAM… but it didn’t say anything about the amount of potential users actually using it…
-Can i configure jitsi to listen to another port then 80 and to create a virtual host, so I can let the users come in via another domain ? Like they will use:
where the ‘itsilogin’ subdomain dns refers
to a virtualhost which refers to lets say port 90, where jitsi listens to?
Maybe I forgot a few good questions here, if anyone could offer information for a starter, I like to have it.
Thanks in advance!!!
