This tutorial is for setting up a BBB instance using their installer script. In my case, this instance will run in a virtualized environment on a physical host with a symmetric gig connection.

Step #1

Okay, so I installed a clean Ubuntu 18.04.6 on a VM with 8 processors and 16GB RAM. I used the install script found at the BBB documentation/install website:

wget -qO- | bash -s -- -v focal-250 -s -e  -a -w

Since my data center does not support ipv6, I needed to disable this. I am working with Brown Rice to make ipv6 a reality, but all in good time. BBB ipv6 disable resource.

sudo nano /opt/freeswitch/etc/freeswitch/autoload_configs/event_socket.conf.xml
<param name="listen-ip" value=""/>
sudo mv /opt/freeswitch/etc/freeswitch/sip_profiles/internal-ipv6.xml /opt/freeswitch/etc/freeswitch/sip_profiles/internal-ipv6.xml_
sudo mv /opt/freeswitch/etc/freeswitch/sip_profiles/external-ipv6.xml /opt/freeswitch/etc/freeswitch/sip_profiles/external-ipv6.xml_

It is now time to set up Greenlight.

mkdir ~/greenlight
cd ~/greenlight

If you lock yourself out of admin account after a vanilla install.

docker run --rm bigbluebutton/greenlight:v2 cat ./sample.env > .env
docker run --rm bigbluebutton/greenlight:v2 bundle exec rake secret
sudo bbb-conf --secret
docker run --rm --env-file .env bigbluebutton/greenlight:v2 bundle exec rake conf:check
docker run --rm bigbluebutton/greenlight:v2 cat ./greenlight.nginx | sudo tee /etc/bigbluebutton/nginx/greenlight.nginx
sudo systemctl restart nginx

Now, let's start greenlight:

cd ~/greenlight
docker-compose -v
mkdir /etc/bigbluebutton/nginx/
touch /etc/bigbluebutton/nginx/greenlight.nginx
docker run --rm bigbluebutton/greenlight:v2 cat ./docker-compose.yml > docker-compose.yml
export pass=$(openssl rand -hex 24); sed -i 's/POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password/POSTGRES_PASSWORD='$pass'/g' docker-compose.yml;sed -i 's/DB_PASSWORD=password/DB_PASSWORD='$pass'/g' .env
docker-compose up -d
