Etherpad in Docker Version

Hi, I’m running jitsi with the docker version. It all works great except I can’t really get etherpad running. I’m not sure what I’m missing.
I have enabled the ETHERPAD_URL_BASE in .env

ETHERPAD_URL_BASE=http://etherpad.meet.jitsi:9001

Is there something else that needs to be done except running docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f etherpad.yml up?

Do I need to add something to TOOLBAR_BUTTONS in interface_config.js? I have tried adding etherpad to the array but no success.
Not sure what I’m missing and reading through github issues, other posts and can’t seem to find the issue.

Hi,

i have exactly the same issue, any update here :slight_smile: ?

Hi,

exactly my problem too.
I tried with
ETHERPAD_URL_BASE=http://etherpad.meet.jitsi:9001
an ETHERPAD_URL_BASE=http://etherpad.mydomain.com:9001
(I registered the Domain to the public IP)
I can see, that the Etherpad Docker starts but no Integration in the Video Conference.
Also strange:
When I try to telnet localhost 9001 I get “connection refused”
Best regards,
Marcel

I had the same problem. Somehow this gets not written into the config file.

Open jitsi-meet-cfg/web/config.js and search for etherpad_base: there you need to enter the base URL again. It defaults to /etherpad/p/ for some reason.

Oh and keep the /p/-part at the end.

Edit the file etherpad.yaml and add the ports section. This will expose 9001 to your localhost.

version: '3'

services:
    # Etherpad: real-time collaborative document editing
    etherpad:
        image: jitsi/etherpad
        ports:
            - 127.0.0.1:9001:9001
        networks:
            meet.jitsi:
                aliases:
                    - etherpad.meet.jitsi

Hi Stonerl,

thanks a lot for you help, the second part, getting etherpad to listen to 9001 works perfectly.
But the first part:

Open jitsi-meet-cfg/web/config.js and search for etherpad_base: there you need to enter the base URL again. It defaults to /etherpad/p/ for some reason.

Does not work for me.
If I edit it, jitsi stops working.
Coud you post the Syntax for it please?
Like:
etherpad_base: ‘/http://etherpad.mydomain.de/p/’,
Thanks a lot and best regards,
Marcel

EDIT:
It now works, thank a lot again!:
Syntax:
etherpad_base: ‘https://etherpad.mydomain.de/p/’,

You’re very welcome.

Hi @netbloks and @stonerl,

Thanks for sharing info for this issue.
I followed your steps, and finally etherpad menu (open shared document) show up in my server.

But i have another problem, after click open shared documents and took a while, it failed to open shared documents with the following error:

here is the content of my etherpad.yml files:
version: ‘3’

services:
# Etherpad: real-time collaborative document editing
etherpad:
image: jitsi/etherpad:latest
ports:
- 127.0.0.1:9001:9001
restart: ${RESTART_POLICY}
networks:
meet.jitsi:
aliases:
- etherpad.meet.jitsi

and my config.js settings:
etherpad_base: ‘https://etherpad.mydomain.org/p/’,

Is there any steps that i’ve missed? Could anyone give some suggestion.

Thanks
