How to install Jitsi on Ubuntu server

Jitsi is an open-source video conferencing application that you can install Jitsi on Ubuntu server. Here are the steps to install Jitsi on Ubuntu server:

  1. Update the Ubuntu server:
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
  1. Install the Jitsi repository key:
wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -
  1. Add the Jitsi repository to your server’s sources list:
echo 'deb stable/' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jitsi-stable.list
  1. Update the package list:
sudo apt update
  1. Install the Jitsi packages:
sudo apt install jitsi-meet
  1. During the installation process, you will be asked to configure the domain name for your Jitsi installation. Enter your domain name and follow the instructions.
  2. Once the installation is complete, you can access Jitsi by navigating to your server’s domain name in a web browser.

That’s it! You should now have Jitsi installed on your Ubuntu server.

Instead of Domain How to Configure IP?

If you don’t have a domain name, you can configure Jitsi with your server’s IP address. Here are the steps to do it:

  1. Install Jitsi as described in the previous answer.
  2. Once the installation is complete, open the /etc/jitsi/meet/<your hostname>-config.js file in a text editor. Replace <your hostname> with your server’s hostname.
  3. Find the domain property in the configuration file and replace it with your server’s IP address. For example:
var config = {
    // ...
    hosts: {
        domain: 'your.server.ip.address',
        // ...
    // ...
  1. Save the configuration file.
  2. Restart the Jitsi services to apply the changes:
sudo service jitsi-videobridge2 restart
sudo service jicofo restart
sudo service prosody restart
  1. Finally, navigate to your server’s IP address in a web browser to access Jitsi.

That’s it! You should now be able to use Jitsi on Ubuntu server with your IP address as the domain.

How to Open Port in Order to Access Jitsi from a Web Browser?

There are several ports that you need to open in order to access Jitsi from a web browser. By default, Jitsi uses the following ports:

  • 80/TCP – HTTP
  • 443/TCP – HTTPS
  • 10000/UDP – Jitsi Videobridge

You need to open these ports in your server’s firewall to allow incoming traffic. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open the necessary ports using the ufw firewall:
sudo ufw allow http
sudo ufw allow https
sudo ufw allow 10000/udp
  1. Enable the firewall to start automatically at boot time:
sudo ufw enable
  1. If you are running the Jitsi server behind a NAT (Network Address Translation) device, you will also need to configure port forwarding on your router to forward incoming traffic to your server’s IP address.

After opening the necessary ports, you should be able to access Jitsi using your server’s IP address in a web browser. Note that using an IP address instead of a domain name can cause issues with certificate validation and security warnings in the browser. To avoid these issues, it’s recommended to use a domain name with a valid SSL certificate for your Jitsi installation.
