nihilist - 00 / 00 / 00


Before we start, you will need a Debian 10+ VPS (you can get one on digitalocean for example), if you prefer to use your own self hosted server, make sure that port 80 and 443 are correctly port forwarded so that the public ip points to the server and not the router. Once that's done, go and ssh into your debian 10 server.

You can use DuckDNS to get a free domain name:

[ ] [ /dev/pts/13 ] [~/Nextcloud/blog/Conf]
→ ssh
The authenticity of host ' (' can't be established.
ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:z2HAncB99pfbAUfj9tJY7vlo8EGUzCIUxWBAnjAflcA.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no/[fingerprint])? yes

Then CTRL+S and CTRL+X to exit nano

doesn't quite work yet. even through a nginx reverse proxy.

Looks like it needs to be an actual signed certificate !!!

apt install socat -y
wget -O - | sh
source ~/.bashrc

#GET THE CNAME RECORD pointing to !!!! or an A RECORD to the server's IP !!! 
systemctl stop nginx --issue --standalone -d -k 4096
#then go replace the existing .cer , .key and ca.cer files

cd /etc/jitsi/meet/
cp /root/
cp /root/

systemctl start nginx

Then simply login :

Once you're done, hit "go"

Once in the conference room you can just invite people and give them the private link:

For instance, this current instance is the following link :


Until there is Nothing left.
