Jitsi installer: easy way to install a standalone Jitsi server

I prepared a Jitsi installer. It’s compatible with Debian 10 Buster and Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa. It does not only install Jitsi but also guides the user during the installation to avoid potential problems. See GitHub page for details.

Run as root. According to your system

su -l
sudo su -l

wget -O jitsi-buster-installer https://raw.githubusercontent.com/emrahcom/emrah-tools/main/jitsi/installer/buster/jitsi-buster-installer

export JITSI_HOST=jitsi.yourdomain.com
export TURN_HOST=turn.yourdomain.com

bash jitsi-buster-installer

I prepared a variant for school use. These are the pre-configured features:

  • Enabled JWT authentication
  • Only teachers can create a classroom
  • Students cannot create a classroom but can connect to the classroom if it was already created by a teacher
  • Guests cannot connect to the classroom
  • The classroom will be closed 60 seconds after the teacher leaves.
  • There can be many teachers in a classroom with teacher privileges
  • The teacher always gets teacher privileges when reconnecting
  • The participants cannot change their profiles
  • Disabled YouTube sharing
