Installer for jitsi-meet, jigasi and jibri

Found this lovely code base (that actually worked) on github, supported on a debian 10/11 or ubuntu 20+ versions-

The script ( can be used to install stable version of all 3 on a stand-alone server. This is simply a script version of quick-install document at

It Installs below mentioned software:

nginx, prosody, jitsi-meet-prosody, jitsi-meet, jitsi-meet-web, jitsi-meet-web-config, jitsi-meet-turnserver, jicofo, jitsi-videobridge2

Below are optional, will be installed only if opted for:

jigasi (
jibri (

  • jigasi authentication (find it towards the end of secure domain link)
  • transcription(Google/Vosk) (
  • Etherpad (

Supported Platforms

  • Ubuntu-18/20
  • Debian-9/10


Run it either as root user or a user with sudo privileges (keep both and jitsi_config_file in the same directory while executing, customize the value of jitsi_config_file as per your requirement) and Run without any arguments

Other optional variables

export HOST_NAME=HOSTNAME_OF_SERVER (Default: Result of command 'hostname')
export JIGASI_TRANSCRIPTS_DIR=/directory/to/store/transcripts (Default: "/etc/jitsi/transcripts")

For more options, dump the config file template using “export_config_file_template” option and check. You may either export variables from terminal or uncomment those lines in the config file, however it’s better or recommended to update the config file before executing.

If the config file(jitsi_config_file) is present in the same directory as the installer, options specified in config file will take precedence

  1. Hi,
    Jitsi script halts at JaaS Integration?
    #You can easily add dial-in support to your meetings. To allow this we would need your permission to create a free JaaS (Jitsi as a Service) account for you
    #Add telephony to your Jitsi meetings?

    How can we use debconf to override answer as No?
    Please advise.
    Great blog
