Anybody had luck with Jitsi docker + Nginx on a VPS?

So I got a 8GB Ram VPS on Christmas deal and wanted to host Jitsi conference solution. I wanted to do it the docker way as I am also planning to use Rocket.Chat on the same machine. I just cannot make the docker to work with Nginx proxy on host machine. Anybody had luck getting Jitsi working. Any help is appreciated.

  • a little off topic, but you hosted a real time, compute intensive application inside a docker inside a VPS? Like Inception?

  • I have tried Jitsi natively inside a VPS and have found it to be a huge PITA. It maxes out the CPUs and performance suffers once a few people join. I don't think hosting it inside docker would improve the experience. I have tried lowering the bit rates and all the workarounds mentioned in various forums but it didn't help. If you want to try and see how Jitsi works you may want to try installing it natively. But if you want to have a conferencing solution that you are actually going to use BigBlueButton is much better. My BBB install runs on the same VPS that I used for Jitsi and the performance is much better.

  • for conference call, how about nextcloud native talk app?

  • Yes, I have Jitsi on Debian, working fine. No docker.

    Yeah wanted to try and then move it to a dedicated server. But even with BBB on bare install I had trouble with web socket connection. Anyone running BBB on docker?

    Talk is good but I thought we need individual accounts to be created on Nextcloud for people to join. No?

    it can be share with external participants and an url that open a public room will be given. i however have not yet tried it tho

  • I had this (https://github.com/jitsi/docker-jitsi-meet) running during virtua-christmas. No nginx, no nothing just the plain docker-compose setup. No major issues, but this was using a good chunk of the cpu, so I wouldn't consider this a permanent setup. We were 10 devices over 5 countries and 2 continents and it went pretty smooth :)

    Okay, I have a dedicated from hetzner so Cpu usage not a problem for me. I wanted to make this work with reverse proxy as I already host some applications on the same box

    I’m running it in a Debian vm, reverse proxied via nginx on the host (plus a forwarded port or two). The installation is geared towards installing on a fresh machine that it can set up from scratch. Trying to install it on an existing machine did not work out. The easiest route is to make a virtual machine for it and let the official install script set up the spaghetti array of services it needs. Or use docker I guess but not my cup of tea :)

    I can echo the high cpu requirements - high single digit participants can chew through an entire e3 ivy bridge core or so
