[jitsi-users] Jitsi Meet and WordPress


#1

I have set up a self-hosted Jitsi Meet on a Digital Ocean droplet as a
test. I am interested in adding JM to a subdomain of a WP instance with the
JM root address being meet.example.com, where WP is at example.com.

I'm running WP in LAMP, but I see JM uses nginx as its web server. Can WP
and JM cohabit peacefully with WP in Apache and JM in nginx? Do I simply go
through the ordinary JM install procedure, and list meet.example.com as the
JM domain in the installer?

Thanks in advance.

What you ask is a normal hosting problem :

Yes, you can, BUT you have to use different IP Adresses for your
webservers. You need at least a root server with 2 ips.
You have to setup Apache to listen only to ip A, and nginx to ip B ,
same with the main domainname and the subdomainname.

As consequence, you can't share a common session. But this is only
relevant, if you plan to let users login before they can chat.
If it's a free chat, nothing stands in your way.

You can do it, you just have to be careful in configuring it.

The Jitsi Meet and the WordPress sites will have to be in
separate apache virtual hosts (or nginx servers).

You can either configure Jitsi Meet to run with Apache or -- the
easier way -- to just run the WordPress with nginx (it's really
simple to have WP under nginx, see [0], [1])

You may have to edit some of the nginx config after the quick install
of Meet with deb packages, but it's not much.

As long as they are on separate virtual hosts (or in nginx
terminology, separate "servers") they can be run on the same IP and
ports.

After that, if you want to have some WordPress integration, you can
drop me a line -- my company has commercial projects for WP
integration if you are interested.

Thank you both for your helpful suggestions. I am new to managing a server
at this level, so I'm going to do some more research and give it some more
thought. You've given me a good head start.
