Purge installation

Hi, I’m installing jitsi-meet on a Ubuntu 18 server as per the instructions. I entered the domain name incorrectly during the process, and now I’m not asked again when I try to apt-get purge & apt-get install again.

How can I purge Jitsi and all config files so I can start over?

Oh, and quickly please, how can I change the HTTP and HTTPS ports?



deleted, so as not to confuse people in the future

and see if that does the trick?

Wellll… the correct or the broken domain name? LOL

I’ll try…

Fair question. The correct one.

Wait… the syntax is off, isn’t it?

root@coffee:/etc/jitsi/meet# dpkg-reconfigure cruddie.site jitsi-videobridge2
dpkg-query: package ‘cruddie.site’ is not installed and no information is available
Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.
/usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: cruddie.site is not installed

Thanks for your quick help anyways

Can we not just purge the whole thing? That seems very clean to me

Ah, dpkg-reconfigure jitsi-videobridge2 seems to work


(The dpkg-reconfigure command was something another user reported as working; I haven’t tried it myself, so sorry if it doesn’t work for you.)

I think it wouldn’t work for anyone actually, honestly… not according to dpkg-reconfigure’s docs.

You need to reconfigure all the packages, but this is somthing that is not much tested, so you better purge everything and start from scratch (uninstall command in quick install guide).
