[jitsi-users] jitsi-meet manual install

As I have been advised that re-branding the welcome page would require
modifying the source, I am looking into the process of rolling my own
version of Jitsi Meet. I found the manual install instructions in
jitsi-meet/doc on GitHub, but I'm wondering if it's really necessary to
build all the other components as well as Jitsi Meet. Seems like a pain
to have to keep all that stuff up to date, especially if I can't just
pull updates from a git repository (not sure why the instructions
recommend otherwise).

Would it work if I just install the binaries for jitsi-videobridge and
jicofo, then pull and modify jitsi-meet from GitHub?

Best Regards,
David

Yep, that should work fine.

Cheers,

Hey David,

The easiest way is to install jitsi-meet from packages, make sure it
works. Then clone the source, make your changes and just change the
root path in your nginx config from /usr/share/jitsi-meet to the
folder of your cloned and modified jitsi-meet.

Hi @damencho ,
I am changing address of root (e.g: /srv/jitsi-meet) in /etc/nginx/sites-available/meet.mydomain.com.conf ,restarted services and nginx reloaded but not thing happen, even i dont know why still its comming from /usr/share/jitsi-meet ?
any advice ? am i missing any where else to point folder for modified jitsi-meet?
thnx

Hello Riva,
the way i did it was to issue following commands:
rm /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/meet.mydomain.com.conf
mv /etc/nginx/sites-available/meet.mydomain.com.conf /etc/nginx/conf.d/meet.mydomain.com.conf

edit the file: /etc/nginx/conf.d/meet.mydomain.com.conf
in there i changed the root from /usr/share/jitsi-meet to /srv/jitsi-meet-edited
and a little bit further down i changed the :
#ensure all static content can always be found first
location ~ ^/(libs|css|static|images|fonts|lang|sounds|connection_optimization|.well-known)/(.)$
{
add_header ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ '
’;
# alias /usr/share/jitsi-meet/$1/$2; <- Commented / deleted that
alias /srv/jitsi-meet-edited/$1/$2; <- changed that
}

After that the page is not affected by updates from the usual /usr/share/jitsi-meet location and loads the changes i do in the srv folder.

I hope this helps you
