I’ve been interested in using jitsi videobridge for a while. A few months ago I spent many hours trying to install on a server and eventually gave up. I’m trying again now and having no better luck.
I’m trying to install on an Ubuntu 16.04 server hosted through Vultr. I have a domain hosted through Google Domains. The DNS A/AAAA records are correctly pointed at the server. When I install Apache on the server, I can see the Apache landing page by visiting the url of the domain. When I try to install Jitsi on Apache, I am unable to get the lets-encrypt cert script to work. When I try to install Jitsi without Apache and let it run on Jetty, I visit the url of the domain and I get the Chrome error “The site can’t be reached”, there is nothing there. I’ve also tried installing with instructions from Youtube videos and those installations failed too. I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong, I don’t understand how all these other people are getting Jitsi to work successfully, I don’t understand why the instructions from Jitsi are failing me, and it just seems like there’s not very much documentation available.
Please, any help would be appreciated. I really want to get this working, it’s been driving me crazy.
