Failed to start Spreed WebRTC server

After install spreedme I cannot press “Generate Spreed WebRTC config”.

Step 3) i: of this manual: https://github.com/strukturag/nextcloud-spreedme/blob/master/README.md

Any idea?

Same with the button “Show advanced settings

Save settings” results into a blank page.

What’s happens if you click the Generate Spreed WebRTC config button?
Please enable Nextcloud’s debug mode (i.e. add 'debug' => true, to the Nextcloud config/config.php), open your browser’s developer console and paste its output here.

  • Set ‘debug’ => true,
  • Restarted apache
  • Opened Firefox Console
  • Pressed “Generate Spreed WebRTC config”
  • Nothing happened:

Did you check folder permissions? After setting strong folder permissions your http-user might not be able to write the config file anymore. Read here about that: https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/11/admin_manual/maintenance/update.html#setting-permissions-for-updating

Hi my webrtc/spreed.me stuff runs fine… i have done the config manually and not with the app…so you get also a “OwnCloudConfig.js”.
It is a great video guide at this site https://nextcloud.com/webrtc/ …just scroll a bit down… at the end of video there ist the way to go to generate the config manually. The Guide works very well from a-z :wink:

What u need starts at 8:59 but maybe u should looking the part of server configuration to…because of shared secrets etc…

this should help you
regards

Have you checked the Nextcloud and/or web server error log?

I don’t know why, but now pressing “Generate …” is working.

Followed the manual above:

  • Installed SpreedWebRTC from repositories
  • Replaced content of /etc/spreed/webrtc.conf with the result of Admin-Page
  • Configured Apache
  • Restarted services spreed-webrtc and apache2

Get this error when calling the app:

The Admin-Page is still showing me this:

Nextcloud log, level Info. Apache mismatch configuration!?!?

“service spreed-webrts start” in syslog:

Actual Spreed.ME config in Admin-Page:

Have u ever watched the video wich i posted and / or following the video guide step by step, so that u generate the config manually ?

Thanks @nitroese.

I think the only different is that I used Ubuntu repositories. You downloaded and compiled manually from github?

No way:

service spreed-webrtc restart

results into

OMG … got it:

In /etc/spreed/webrtc.conf I had to add this to **http** section:

root = /usr/share/spreed-webrtc-server/www/

If installed from repositories for Ubuntu seems to be mandatory.

@spreed.me developers: Please add this to your documentation / installation scripts!!!

Found solution here: https://github.com/strukturag/spreed-webrtc/issues/383#issuecomment-257289125

PS: I’m using the stable repositories:

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:strukturag/spreed-webrtc
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install spreed-webrtc

Hi Nitrosee, I am also unable to configure Spreed.ME on my linux shared server. Except this everything is working fine on NC 13 version.

error details

config/config.php was not found. We will use the Nextcloud database to read/write config values.

You can change them here:
A new SPREED_WEBRTC_CONFIG was generated.
Simply remove everything from your current server.conf and paste the new config in instead.
Restart Spreed WebRTC afterwards.
