is the lobby feature available with the default ubuntu installation? Should I install the nightly version still? I don’t see the option enabled when going in the security window.
It is in stable for long time now.
If you have installed your version of jitsi-meet before lobby going to stable, you will need to do some configuration in prosody to enable it as updates do not try to break already configured deployments.
i’ve done an installation from scratch using ubuntu packages but I don’t see it in the UI. Unsure why, is there any setting to enable?
A one small detail, it will not work with prosody 0.10. You should see it in prosody logs:
-- storage = "memory"
-- muc_room_cache_size = 1000
-- restrict_room_creation = true
-- muc_room_locking = false
-- muc_room_default_public_jids = true
-- we use async to detect Prosody 0.10 and earlier
local have_async = pcall(require, 'util.async');
if not have_async then
module:log('warn', 'Lobby rooms will not work with Prosody version 0.10 or less.');
local formdecode = require "util.http".formdecode;
local jid_split = require 'util.jid'.split;
local jid_bare = require 'util.jid'.bare;
local json = require 'util.json';
local filters = require 'util.filters';
local st = require 'util.stanza';
local MUC_NS = 'http://jabber.org/protocol/muc';

Read this post to upgrade Prosody:
Have you already installed Jitisi-Meet using the steps outlined in the
Quick Start / Handbook and now you want to enable other features like “speakerstats” or “conferenceduration”? Maybe you are not getting muc-occupant-joined and muc-occupant-left events in your modules?
Some of these features in Jitsi Meet require Prosody 0.11.2 +
Note: If you update prosody before installing jitsi-meet, then things will just work. Follow only steps 1 - 4 below, then continue with you…
thanks Ior the information. I will try the update tomorrow
