[jitsi-dev] Jitsi Meet install error on Ubuntu 14.04


#1

Following the Jitsi Meet quick install instructions, during apt-get -y install jitsi-meet, I got the following (sorry for German messages, have translated keywords in parentheses) :

* Restarting Prosody XMPP Server prosody [ OK ]

Running on Virtual Server under Plesk (Host is strato.de). Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I have installed ejabberd as XMPP server. Yesterday I installed Jitsi Videobridge linux x64-409.

Today (28 Fed 2015), using repository "deb http://download.jitsi.org/nightly/deb unstable/", I did apt-get -y install jitsi-meet and ran into the above error.

Is this a Jitsi Meet install problem? If so, is there a fix?

Hello,

Following the Jitsi Meet quick install instructions, during apt-get
-y install jitsi-meet, I got the following (sorry for German
messages, have translated keywords in parentheses) :

The jitsi-meet package installs nginx, which probably clashes with your
existing apache2.

Running on Virtual Server under Plesk (Host is strato.de). Ubuntu
14.04 LTS. I have installed ejabberd as XMPP server.

Again, the jitsi-meet package installs and configures its own XMPP
server -- prosody.

Yesterday I installed Jitsi Videobridge linux x64-409.

This is not necessary if you install the "jitsi-meet" package.

If you want to use apache2, our debian packages will not work. You will
need to install and configure the components manually as described here:
https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/manual-install.md

The web-server configuration will be different of course. You can search
the mailing list archives for how to configure apache2.

Regards,
Boris

Boris,

Thanks so much for the info about the Meet quick install package. I obviously did not realize it contains all the building blocks plus web server. That would be perfect for a lot of situations, but not mine (Apache), so I will try a manual install of Meet.

Thanks for the quick primer to get me back on track.

    Jim
