[jitsi-dev] Uninstalling/reinstalling Jitsi-meet and hostname configurations


#1

Hi,

I'm fairly new to Jitsi and Jitsi-meet, but I'm experienced in Linux and
other types of server-side deployment. I know next to nothing about Lua or
Prosody, which may well show through in the following post...

I installed Jitsi using the instructions here:
https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/quick-install.md and
referring to some of the information here
https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/manual-install.md

Initially I used an IP address as hostname, as I was evaluating the ease of
installation etc, and didn't at that time have access to the DNS settings
for the intended domain etc.

So I would like now to be able to change this initial IP address
configuration to a hostname

I've tried various methods of uninstallation, including

    apt-get purge jitsi-meet
    apt-get purge
    find / -type f -name '*jitsi*' -delete
    find / -type f -name '*prosody*' -delete
    find / -type f -name '*jigasi*' -delete
    find / -type f -name '*jicofo*' -delete

But still when I run the installer, it skips the 'hostname' step, and
proceeds directly to the 'certificates' step.

How do I:

a) Make the installer start completely from scratch again, and let me
select the required hostname/domain name, over-writing all previous settings

or

b) edit the settings correctly in /etc/prosody/conf.avail/ (and anywhere
else required) such that the domain name is correct.

c) effect a complete uninstallation so that Jitsi installer starts from
scratch

Any help gratefully received.

Cheers,

Marcus

After deleting all the packages, what do you see if you run this? dpkg -l |
grep -i jitsi

Hi Marcus

Below is the quote from damencho in another mail thread. Please try it.

You need to run dpkg-reconfigure on all of the packages:

dpkg-reconfigure jitsi-videobridge jicofo jitsi-meet-prosody
jitsi-meet-web-config, this should be enough.
Mind that procedure is not well tested and you can hit some problem/bug.
The other option is just purging all packages (apt-get --purge remove
jitsi-videobridge jicofo jitsi-meet-prosody jitsi-meet-web-config
jitsi-meet-web jitsi-meet) and start again on clean.

Regards,

Nam Vu

@ Saúl - I removed jicofo and reinstalled but the reconfiguration screens
were still not run.

@NamVu - dpkg-reconfigure did work! thanks
