Steps to get Jitsi up and running.

Install jitsi

(taken from https://jitsi.org/downloads/)

You can use our Ubuntu/Debian repository:

First install the Jitsi repository key onto your system:

Create a sources.list.d file with the repository:

Jitsi Github

Update your package list:

Install the full suite:

or only the packages you need like for example:


Open incoming connections to the following ports:

  • 80 (HTTP)
  • 443 (HTTPS)
  • 4443/tcp
  • 10000:20000/udp
  • 5347/tcp from localhost to localhost

If you are using ufw, you can use an application profile. Create /etc/ufw/applications.d/jitsi with the following content:

Then run ufw allow Jitsi. This will open the ports mentioned above.

See also the section 'Network description' under https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/manual-install.md.

SSL: certbot

Use certbot to obtain a LetsEncrypt certificate for your jitsi server. Follow the instructions here: https://certbot.eff.org

As an example, the steps needed for an Nginx running in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (bionic) are listed here: https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/ubuntubionic-nginx

NOTE:If the certbot run fails with the following error, edit /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/<YOUR-DOMAIN-NAME>.conf and comment the line server_names_hash_bucket_size (should be right at the top):

Apart from that, you might need to add server_names_hash_bucket_size 128 to the http section of your /etc/nginx/nginx.conf. This whole issue is also disussed in https://github.com/certbot/certbot/issues/5199.


Other things you might want to configure

Audio and/or video muted by default

Per room

As Moderator:Go to Settings (hidden in the three dots at the bottom right), then under More you will see the options 'Everyone starts muted' and 'Everyone starts hidden'.

Jitsi Github Android

As a user, you can choose to enter a particular room with video and/or audio muted using config.startWithVideoMuted and/or config.startWithAudioMuted like so:


In /etc/jitsi/meet/<YOUR-DOMAIN-NAME>-config.js, there are a bunch of options. I haven't have not tried them yet, though:

Room passwords
