This article will go through the installation and configuration of the Jitsi Video Conference on the latest Debian 11 Bullseye. At the end of this guide, you will be able to create a meeting using the Jitsi Video conference.
Before you get started, ensure you’ve got the following requirements:
- Operating System: Debian 11 Bullseye
- Root privileges
Install Packages Dependencies
The first step is to install some packages dependencies such as gnupg2, nginx-full, sudo, apt-transport-https, curl, and java OpenJDK.
1. Update your Debian repository and install those packages on top using the following command.
sudo apt install apt-transport-https gnupg2 nginx-full sudo curl -y
2. Jitsi required Java OpenJDK version 1.8 or 1.11; the default Debian repository provides Java OpenJDK 1.11.
Now execute the following command to install Java OpenJDK packages.
sudo apt install default-jdk -y
After installation completes, verify the Java OpenJDK version using the following command.
You will see a similar output as below.
openjdk version "11.0.13" 2021-10-19 OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 11.0.13+8-post-Debian-1deb11u1) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 11.0.13+8-post-Debian-1deb11u1, mixed mode, sharing)
After all packages have been installed, move on to setting up Jitsi and Prosody repositories.
