I'd like to run Jitsi Meet on my own server, but I can't get it to work.
I rented a $3 virtual private server with Ubuntu 14.04, default network
security only restricts outbound SMTP ports, all other ports are open.
I tried 4 ways:
1) With Docker. There's this unofficial docker container for Jitsi Meet:
https://hub.docker.com/r/robertoandrade/jitsi-meet/. It uses the Jitsi Meet
nightly debian installer. When running that, and using the server's IP
address as host name, I can connect to the web interface via https and
start a room, others can connect, but audio and video doesn't work.
2) With Docker, but changed the run.sh from the robertoandrade/jitsi-meet
container so that the stable installer gets used, and changed the docker
run command so that all ports mentioned in the Dockerfile get forwarded (80,
443, 5347, 10000/udp-10010/udp). Same result as 1.
3) New server, tried installing with the "quick installation" here:
using "https://download.jitsi.org stable" and "apt-get -y install
jitsi-meet". When using the server's IP address as host name, it's the same
result as 1 and 2.
4) New server, this time during the installation I used the public DNS name
of the server instead of its IP address. Now I can visit via http, which
shows the default nginx page, but the browser can't connect to https at all.
I could try the manual installation steps in
I'd prefer to figure out why the debian installer doesn't work for me.
What am I doing wrong? Does the debian installer work for you?
