Install Jitsi from source with videobridge2

Hi everyone, how could I install jitsi-videobrige2 with the relative source code?

Or… coudl I reconfigure actually installed one with my modifications? I think it’s quite confusing to see many configuration files that are not useful to edit from the ppa version since it would not being reconfigured.

For example, I see in index.html a commented:

#include virtual=“title.html”

uncommenting it doesn’t have any effect… :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

@damencho could you clear me out about this? :slight_smile:

This is not a comment, but a serverside include.

Thanks @damencho for the clarification, I never seen that before ( LoL )

I have some questions on videobridge 2:

  • after installing through apt it’s said I can purge these packages since no more used:

coturn jicofo jitsi-meet-prosody jitsi-meet-turnserver jitsi-meet-web jitsi-meet-web-config libevent-2.1-6 libevent-core-2.1-6 libevent-extra-2.1-6 libevent-openssl-2.1-6 libevent-pthreads-2.1-6 libgd3 libhiredis0.13 libmaxminddb0 libmysqlclient20 libnginx-mod-http-auth-pam libnginx-mod-http-dav-ext libnginx-mod-http-echo libnginx-mod-http-geoip libnginx-mod-http-geoip2 libnginx-mod-http-image-filter libnginx-mod-http-subs-filter libnginx-mod-http-upstream-fair libnginx-mod-http-xslt-filter libnginx-mod-mail libnginx-mod-ssl-ct libnginx-mod-stream libpq5 libwebp6 libxslt1.1 lua-bitop lua-event lua-expat lua-filesystem lua-sec lua-socket lua5.1 mysql-common nginx nginx-common nginx-full prosody ssl-cert

I’m a bit scared it will broke everything since many of them are used by jitsi :upside_down_face:

  • I had tried to change some stuff like the favicon.ico but when loading the website, clearing my cache, still show me the old one, changed in both root and images directory…

  • If I’d like to customize more stuff, like languages enabled or so on, how could I do it? I tried to follow the manual installation but I fail on TURN server.
