Congratulations! You made it through the self-hosting guide and your server is now up and running. Now what?
Is running a Jitis Meet server new to you? Maybe interacting with Linux is also a new experience?
This post will hopefully help you learn some basic commands to update, upgrade and monitor your Jitsi Meet server.
For Debian based systems operating and updating Jitsi Meet, Jicofo, Prosody, Nginx and JVBs is the same as other services on the system:
Update Jitis (and other apps)
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
Update Prosody (to the latest)
See what version of Jitsi you have:
dpkg -l | grep jitsi
To restart everything without rebooting:
service nginx restart && service jitsi-videobridge2 restart && service prosody restart && service jicofo restart
Monitor Video Bridge logs:
tail -F /var/log/jitsi/jvb.log
Monitor Jicofo logs:
tail -F /var/log/jitsi/jicofo.log
Monitor Prosody logs:
tail -F /var/log/prosody/prosody.log
Monitor nginx logs:
tail -F /var/log/nginx/error.log
Hope this helps!
