JWT token installation -- NEED HELP!

Dear Jitsi Community, @damencho, @sapkra, @Pawel_Domas, @jespino, @Aaron_K_van_Meerten


Following the official jitsi-meet-tokens installation guide results in luacrypto errors

I would like to know if there is a better step-by-step process to perform the installation.

My server config

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:	Ubuntu
Description:	Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS
Release:	20.04
Codename:	focal

In addition I was also looking at these notes

BUT the process always fails on luarocks install luacrypto


I understand there are a bunch of outdated threads on how to resolve it but none work any longer. There is also a notion that luacrypto is a very old repo that is not being maintained and we should really use luaossl instead.

I really need someone to point me to a step-by-step guide on how to install the jitsi-meet-tokens successfully WITHOUT wasting weeks of my time. I cannot believe that it should be THIS DIFFICULT!!!
