Honeyguide shows us how to get up a Jitsi conferencing server on your FreeBSD operating system. Jitsi Meet is a free and open-source video conference service. In their example, they set up a server in South Africa to connect users who are stuck in their homes. See the link below for the full set of instructions.
Due to the situation with COVID-19 that also lead to people being confined to their homes in South Africa as well, we decided to provide a (freely usable of course) Jitsi Meet instance to the community being hosted in South Africa on our FreeBSD environment.
That way, communities in South Africa and beyond have a free alternative to the commercial conferencing solutions with sometimes dubious security and privacy histories and at the same time improved user experience due to the lower latency of local hosting.
Our instance is available at jitsi.honeyguide.net for those wanting to try it out.
This tutorial will show you how to set up your own Jitsi Meet from scratch on FreeBSD.
