Issue with changing jitsimeet internal port 8080 because of clash

Hi all, I have jitsi meet installed on ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS
I have gitlab also installed and that is clashing with jitsi meet on port 8080 (internal)

I Read that you have to add org.jitsi.videobridge.rest.private.jetty.port=YOURNEWPORT
to sip-communicator.properties.

That fixed the clashing and gitlab works again however now i get this issue

The result of this error is when i join a room in 15 seconds it crashes, How can i fix this issue.

this is very surprising since 8080 is the private interface and Jicofo is certainly not supposed to connect to it. So I tested it with unstable minus 1 week, I used the new style config:

videobridge {
  http-servers {
      public {
          port = 9090
      }
      private {
          port = 8070
      }
  }
(...)

everything worked fine after that, and videobridge listening on (localhost):8070 as it was supposed to to.
So you must be doing something special, your problem is not reproducible with a vanilla install.

Hi, so i removed the line org.jitsi.videobridge.rest.private.jetty.port=YOURNEWPORT from sip-communicator.properties and added your code to videobridge\jvb.conf

Now when i test
sudo ss -tulpn | grep :newport
It shows that jitsi meet is now listening on the new port and gitlab is working, great.

However i am still getting the crash issue. Could it be ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS ?

if you stop gitlab and restart jitsi-meet with the port changed to a new non default value, does it crash ?
if yes (it still crashes) does removing the port change and getting back to standard config (port 8080) while leaving gitlab not running, does Jitsi-meet crashes again when restarted?

Ok remove port change, restarted and stopped gitlap. It still crashes. I did upgrade from ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS to 20.04.1 LTS, could it be something with 20.04.1 LTS?

oh well, run

sudo ss -tapnu4 | grep -P "(5222|5347)" | grep LISTEN

should return 2 lines else prosody is not running as it should.

returns

tcp    LISTEN     0       128            127.0.0.1:5347           0.0.0.0:*      users:(("lua5.2",pid=1856,fd=15))

a bit baffling, what could return

sudo ss -tapnu4 | grep -P "(5222|5347)" | grep -v LISTEN

Returns

tcp   ESTAB       0       0              127.0.0.1:5222         127.0.0.1:38052  users:(("lua5.2",pid=1856,fd=16))

The strange thing is it has been working fine for months.

it means that Jicofo is connected to Prosody (there are also 2 connections for Jvb). All of this looks pretty normal. Maybe look for error messages in Prosody. Or try to wipe everything and install again. It depends if you prefer to search for the root cause or find a quick fix (or if you have serious customization too)

Prosody error log after “unfortunately something went wrong”

This is a wrong storage setting in prosody config.

@damencho I just found that topic, I think i updated jitsi without upgrading the config file. What is the best way to fix this?

in this case there are probably error messages while prosody is starting, look in the prosody.err file, like ‘unable to load…’
