ERROR when starting jvb


#1

Hi,

have a manual installation of jitsi and upgraded to the latest stable of all packages.
My package versions including Java are now:
openjdk-8-jdk-headless
jitsi-videobridge_1104-1
jicofo_1.0-451-1
jitsi-meet-web_1.0.3186-1
jigasi_1.0-217

But when I start the jvb I get the following error from the jvb.log:
Error: Could not find or load main class $JVB_EXTRA_JVM_PARAMS

The JAVA_SYS_PROPS variable is configured like this:
JAVA_SYS_PROPS="$JVB_EXTRA_JVM_PARAMS -Dnet.java.sip.communicator.SC_HOME_DIR_LOCATION=/etc/jitsi -Dnet.java.sip.communicator.SC_HOME_DIR_NAME=videobridge -Dnet.java.sip.communicator.SC_LOG_DIR_LOCATION=/var/log/jitsi -Djava.util.logging.config.file=/etc/jitsi/videobridge/logging.properties"

My installation worked before and I did not change anything inside the config files of the jvb, prosody etc.

Did someone face the same problem or have an idea what the problem could be?

Thanks in advance!

Delete that variable. Interesting is that when you upgrade packages with apt that should be removed.

Jep that fixed the issue.

The problem why it wasn’t deleted is because we are changed the config after the apt installation. And the variable was still in our config.

I will definitely try to move away from the manual installation.

Anyways, Thank you for your help @damencho!

Files in /etc/jitsi/… will not be overridden, if there is something like that the debian packages installation shows warning to user and shows diffs.
