Creating DNS name through Azure Portal
- The first step is to create a DNS name that will be used for the further connection.
You can specify your DNS name (for which an SSL certificate has been already purchased) and skip this step. In this case, we recommend you to read the following documentation: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/quick-install.md
- To create a DNS name through Azure Portal, go to the VM settings in the “Overview” section.
- Go to “DNS name” settings.
- Fill in the “DNS name label” field and click <Save> at the top.
Connect to a VM using PuTTy
- To connect to a VM, you need the PuTTy application to connect via ssh. You can download it at the following link – Download
- Run Putty, enter the VM address in the “Host” field, and click “Open” to connect.
- In the opened console you will need to enter a username and password that were specified the when the VM have been creating.
- Enter the following command. Initial setup may take ~20 seconds.
> sudo /bin/myjitsi-conf
- In the window that appears, enter the DNS name that you specified in the Azure Portal. Do not include http:// or https:// in front of the DNS name. This will lead to error deployment!
- Select the first item “Generate a new self-signed certificate” and expect further server configuration.
- At the last step, enter your EMAIL address and press “Enter” on the keyboard.
- After you finish creating the server, you can go to https://*dns_name* (be sure to specify https)
- Now you can create and connect to the rooms. To do this, enter a name in the “Start a new meeting” field and press <Go>. The list of available rooms is displayed below, just click LMB on it to connect.
