The CentOS installation scripts for BigBlueButton need to be updated.   We have no release
date yet, but it will be sometime after 0.71 ships.

Hi If you can let me know what the relevant files are then I can get people onto it,
Centos support is important and though sticking to 10.04 Ubuntu is nice, its not common
in the enterprise for servers yet and has very little support with commercial VPS supplier
that are mainly still 9.04 that also it seems to have installation issues.

Just a quick update ... we're deep into working on 0.71 and don't have any bandwidth
at the moment to work on the RPM packaging. 

We'll be revisiting updating the RPM packaging once we release 0.71.

Many thanks to bbb team for their great work. Just wanted to mention that I am only
waiting for CentOs issue to be fixed in order to start to my project with bbb. I agree
Ubuntu 10.04 is not very widely used in servers.

Hi mudalmis,

Unfortunately we have no immediate plans to start supporting rpm packages again. There
is no timeline to fix this issue. I just wanted to let you know, so you are not stuck
waiting on this. If you need absolutely need to use centOS instead of ubuntu, you will
have to install it from source.

Hi Denis, 
I really need a bbb install in my server. But I can't find any guide talk about how
can install bbb in CentOS 5.5 64bit. I tried hard to install followed by all instruction
in this web but it didn't work. I know all of you are very busy but hope you will support
new solution for CentOS 5.5 64bit as soon as possible! Thank you very much.

Hi Tin,

Unfortunately as stated above, CentOS support isn't happening any time soon. If you
really need a bbb server set up, you'll have to find a Ubuntu server, or solve the
problems you are having with installing in on your CentOS server manually.

We've not got any plans in the near-term to update the CentOS packages.  There are
a lot of people right now looking for record and playback in BigBlueButton.  See

Hi Denis , 
 Sorry for taking up your time , is there any way to have bbb without this feature
in CentOs. 

You guys are doing a great job .. and will look into this problem . 

Reported by e.uvalue on 2010-11-30 21:07:07

@bigbluebutton-issue-import
Hi e.uvalue,

The component you are trying to install is the voice conferencing component, so without
it BigBlueButton isn't very useful.

We don't provide support at the moment for CentOS (not since 0.64), so our best suggestion
is to install BigBlueButton on a Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit or 64-bit server.  It will install
in about 15 minutes.

@bigbluebutton-issue-import
As much as I like Ubuntu, my dedicated server provider supports CentOS. That makes it
a bit more risky for me to use Ubuntu, because if I have a problem I could be on my
own. Also, I don't run an xwindow server, and as far as I know you need a gui to use
the virtual machine option. If there was a way to install and run the VM using only
the command prompt, that would help too.

Hi Karth,

Our focus right now is getting BigBlueButton 0.8 to final on Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit and
64-bit.  

We (the core developers) don't have the bandwidth to test BigBlueButton on CentOS.
 It's a quality vs. quantity decision.

For more information see

Hi atko,

Providing full support for CentOS is no small task and, at the moment, we prefer to
invest our engineering resources in improving the core of BigBlueButton.  We think
that will have the greatest benefit to our community.

However, as stated previously, if you *really* want BigBlueButton on CentOS, you have
options to influence the priorities of development.  For more information see

Hi,
   The links describing "how to use RPM packages to install BigBlueButton on CentOS

its returning with the error '...failed connection refused'. I think the server containing

@bigbluebutton-issue-import
If you read the comments, and the status of this ticket, you'll probably notice it is
set to 'WontFix' and the comment mentions abandonment of support for CentOS, after
other people have reported the same problem.

I'm sure if you want to sponsor some support for BigBlueButton on RHEL and its distributions,
then someone will eventually put their hand up.

Reported by The.Onlyodin on 2013-12-23 11:22:03

@bigbluebutton-issue-import
That's correct.  

Time is a precious commodity.  We want to make sure our effort has the highest value.
There are many features (HTML5 client, native mobile client, WebRTC support, start/stop
recording, UI improvements, etc.) that would be *much* higher value to the BigBlueButton
community than reworking the support for CentOS.

We may do CentOS again, but it would have to be based having one or more companies
pull through (pay for the development) for it to occur.  

There would be a lot of value to the CentOS community to have a supported BigBlueButton
distribution.  I personally do the packaging for Ubuntu.  

We had originally marked it as WontFix after two years of waiting for one or more companies
to show commercial interest.  

As we continue to improve BigBlueButton, perhaps some companies will step forward.

Marking this feature as Accepted.

These download links are not working because we've not done any work on the CentOS installation
for BigBlueButton for over three years. 

We *strongly* recommend that if you want to run BigBlueButton to use the distribution
(Ubuntu) supported by the community.

We recognize that some want to use CentOS. For reasons why we focus on Ubuntu, see

Reported by teguh@jayantara.co.id on 2014-10-28 09:45:03

@bigbluebutton-issue-import
We don't have a detailed step-by-step guide for installing BigBlueButton from source.
 We did years ago, but it was quite a lot of effort to maintain and would require a
lot of community support.

Over the years, we've switched our focus from step-by-step instructions to making sure
the packaging for Ubuntu packages works really, really well.  Most people install on
Ubuntu and are done in 30 minutes.

If you want to create RPM packages, start from a Ubuntu server and do an install of
BigBlueButton.   Use the logic in the Ubuntu install to build the RPM packages.
