[jitsi-users] Installation on shared webserver


#1

Hi all!

Is it possible to install Jitsi Meet on a shared webspace without root access? That was really awesome! However, thank you for this great software!

Best regards
Stefan

The only thing that requires root on Jitsi Videobridge is the possibility
to provide access on port 443.

Other than that you should be able to run everything as a user.

Alright. But how can I „install“ it? Just copying the folder onto my webspace shouldn’t be enough, ist it? Which file has then to be called?

To have a fully functional Jitsi Meet you will need more than web
hosting -- there are server side daemons that do most of the stuff
(videobridge, jicofo etc.). So you will have to have the ability to
run java programs and also you will need an XMPP server like Prosody
or Openfire etc. You will also need some lower ports opened.

An alternative can be a cheaper VPS -- there are offers for $5/month
which are totally OK for a small Jitsi Meet instance. I think you can
find even a little bit cheaper VPS in the USA-only (DMCA
contaminated :slight_smile: market.

Thanks for this information. Unfortunately $5 (for me 5€) / month is quite expensive for a non-profit social organization. We already found a free XMPP server but I already thought your app won’t run on a „normal“ web space.

Thank you anyway - I’ll ask the team if we can afford this.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
