Follow the below steps for OpenMeetings installation and configuration in Centos.

I’m going to install some required basic software’s but most of the basic software was installed by default anyhow we need to re run it. See below.

1) Basic package installation ?

# yum install wget gcc-c++ unzip zlib-devel libjpeg-devel freetype-devel giflib-devel ghostscript ImageMagick sox libreoffice

2) MySQL Database creation ?

Follow the below steps to create the mysql database for production environment.

# mysql -u root -p

mysql> CREATE DATABASE openmeetings DEFAULT CHARACTER SET 'utf8';
mysql> CREATE USER 'openmeetings'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'openmeetings';
mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON openmeetings.* TO 'openmeetings'@'localhost';
mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
mysql> exit

3) swftools installation

SWFTools is a collection of utilities for working with Adobe Flash files (SWF files). The tool collection includes programs for reading SWF files, combining them, and creating them from other content (like images, sound files, videos or sourcecode). Follow the below stpes for swftools installation and configuration.

# wget http://www.swftools.org/swftools-0.9.2.tar.gz

# ./configure --libdir=/usr/lib --bindir=/usr/bin
# make
# make install
rm -f /usr/local/share/swftools/swfs/default_viewer.swf -o -L /usr/local/share/swftools/swfs/default_viewer.swf
rm: invalid option -- 'o'
Try `rm --help' for more information.
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/swftools-0.9.2/swfs'
make: *** [install] Error 2

There is a bug in the swftools Makefile that’s why we got above error message. You need to remove below both line which is mentioned in ORANGE color which is start rm -f. Then try to run makefile.

# nano Makefile
        rm -f $(pkgdatadir)/swfs/default_viewer.swf -o -L $(pkgdatadir)/swfs/default_viewer.swf
        rm -f $(pkgdatadir)/swfs/default_loader.swf -o -L $(pkgdatadir)/swfs/default_loader.swf

# cd swfs

Now, Re-Run the Makefile to complete the swftools installation.

# make install

4) Java Version checking

Apache Openmeetings working on .jar file. So java should be installed in our system. We have alredy installed java in our system so, i’m going to check the java version. If No, Install Oracle Java or OpenJDK on your system.

  4. Hello Magesh,
    could I ask you for an advice regarding openmeetins? I have installed 100 OM instances on my server (Centos 6.6. 32 GB memory) . All these instances work well if I start these services manually. I used different ports for server side (conf/red5.properties) and for client side (public/config.xml). See for example https://www.47tsi.com:5443/tsiwebinar, https://www.47tsi.com:5445/tsi1001, https://www.47tsi.com:5447/tsi1011, … . I used also cron job in order to run it automatically after reboot (crontab -e and @reboot /etc/init.d/tsiwebinar start, where tsiwebinar is name of file which runs red5.sh) . I used also chkconfig on and rc.local. All openmeetings instances showed error 204, 556 and 642. If I would start them manually everything is OK. Could you pls help me? Thanks, Fero Gachulinec from Slovakia

  10. Thanks for your help Margesh. Now I can run red5.sh. I can use some function of Openmeetings. But i still have 2 problem. Hoping you help me:
    1. When i want to use Openmeeting i must’nt close red5.sh session. If i close Openmeeting wont run. I do exactly your 18th step, but it’s same.
    2. Audio and video are not working. I re-installed ffmpeg. On FFMPEG path I typed ” /root/ffmpeg-1.1.1 “. Is this right? or deeper?
    3. I cant share my desktop scream. Even when i use demo on website om.alteametasoft.com. I download and run public_7761.jnlp. But when everything done, i click to start sharing, it’s not working. Have you used share desktop scream yet?

  11. ok. I did it. No more Java process was running. I restarted red5.sh file. Then it showed:
    .
    .
    .BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name ‘red5.common’ defined in class path resource [red5.xml]: Instantiation of bean failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.BeanInstantiationException: Could not instantiate bean class [org.springframework.context.support.FileSystemXmlApplicationContext]: Constructor threw exception; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name ‘rmiRegistry’ defined in class path resource [red5-common.xml]: Invocation of init method failed; nested exception is java.rmi.server.ExportException: Port already in use: 9999; nested exception is:
    java.net.BindException: Address already in use
    Where is the problem? How can i fix?

  12. @ Ha Hoang,

    Pls follow the below steps.
    go to # …/openmetings/conf/red5.properties and change value from rtmp.traffic_class=25 to rtmp.traffic_class=-1

    # ps -aux | grep java
    kill openmeetings is currently running and restart red5.sh file

    # ./red5.sh

    1. 1st step had done.
      But when i did 2nd step, i couldn’t kill process. it jumb to new pid. repply is alway “No such process”.
      i tried to to restart red5.sh but the same result. Any idea?

  13. Hi Magesh. I did exactly your introduction until 9.openmeetings installation. My result is not same to you from ./red5.sh.
