I want to run the code on a server by backend support from jitsi and access it externally by opening the server’s external IP adress on a browser.
I downloaded the source code of jitsi meet from the github repository and made it run on my localhost. I was able to access the app on the browser by opening localhost:8080. Then I uploaded the code on a server (Google Compute Engine) and tried to run it by the command ‘make dev’ after ‘npm install’ and ‘make’ as the same way I did at my localhost. I got the same output saying ‘Compiled successfully’ but I cannot open it by the browser by opening http://THE_SERVER’S_EXTERNAL_IP:8080. I of course added
to the devServer parameters in webpack.config.js to allow external access, and it seems successfully reflected.
the standard output:
｢wds｣: Project is running at https://0.0.0.0:8080/
｢wds｣: webpack output is served from /libs/
｢wds｣: Content not from webpack is served from /home/yoshi/jitsi-meet
｢wdm｣: Compiled successfully.
the browser says:
This page isn’t working
THE_SERVER’S_EXTERNAL_IP didn’t send any data
I then checked if webpack and 8080 port of the server works using a test js script like just
and it worked fine. (I was able to access the page with the alert by opening http://THE_SERVER’S_EXTERNAL_IP:8080 on the browser.
I just want to deploy the code on a server using backend infrastructure supported by jitsi (using meet.jit.si) and access it externally by opening its global ip adress on a browser. Possibly do I need another webserver?
I do not want to embed iframe because I want to make a bit change of the UI in future, and not to want to construct the backend infrastructure myself.
I would greatly appreciate it if you could give me some feedback or solution for this problem. Thank you!
