password protection jitsi home site


I set up my own jitsi server.
Don’t want it to be public.

First of all I want to use it with my family and friends.

Can I set up a password protection on the start page?

I have not found a setting for it

Thank you lg Gerd

make it private by setting up a secure domain
This is the standard way of dealing with this problem under Jitsi.

this will make it so that it will only be possible to create a room when logged-in - it’s necessary to actually create at least one login. Then following users can enter the room without logging (they will be guests). If you want to protect even anonymous users to enter a root at will (if the room names you pick are obvious) you can setup a password on the room in the Jitsi standard UI.

thanks for the information
is there a better description with screenshots or a youtube video as an instruction?

I can’t do it with this description even if it seems easy for you.

how do I know if I’m running Jicofo or Jigasi
What is Jicofo ?
What is Jigasi ?

I only have Jitsi-meeting installed no idea if Jicofo is installed there

I have installed

Add the Jitsi package repository
sudo echo ‘deb stable/’ >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jitsi-stable.list
sudo wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -

Install Jitsi Meet
Note: The installer will check if Nginx or Apache is present (in that order) and configure a virtualhost within the web server it finds to serve Jitsi Meet. If none of the above is found it then defaults to Nginx. If you are already running Nginx on port 443 on the same machine turnserver configuration will be skipped as it will conflict with your current port 443.

Ensure support is available for apt repositories served via HTTPS

apt-get install apt-transport-https

#update system#
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

#install java#
apt-get install -y openjdk-8-jre-headless -y

Perform jitsi-meet installation

apt-get -y install jitsi-meet

Thank you :slight_smile:

You need to use

sudo prosodyctl register user mydomain password

for each registered user. Only they will be able to start a new session. They can then send details to the others who will be able to join.

Watch Nerd at Home on

Really there should be a glossary of the Jitsi zoo somewhere.

Jicofo=JItsi COnference FOcus; it’s a mandatory part of any Jitsi installation
Jigasi = JItsi GAteway with pure SIp (IP phones) clients; if you don’t need direct phone-in access you can forget about it.

So yes you have Jicofo and if it does not run nothing will work.

I only need jitsi meeting and a secure domain (PW locked)

i hosted it at home on my server with an external domain

it works but for now i got an error if i give a password = you can try


So it works now but i do not get a Video Stream with the other user

I only see my video

What can i do now ?


Any Ideas ?

did you actually check your system before trying to protect it ? It may be that your jitsi-meet install never worked at all. And before wasting your time, do you have enough bandwidth to host a video server ? ADSL don’t cut it, you need cable (100 MBits upload at least)

I have an 200 MBIT DOWN an 50 MBIT UPLOAD Brand

It never Run a Video

How can i solve that ?
Are there any logs ?
