Openmeetings – video conferencing server on FreeBSD

Openmeetings – is open source video conferencing server on FreeBSD


  • Openoffice 3.0 or latest
  • Mysql-Server5 (or PostgreSQL)
  • jdk16 (openjdk6, diablo-jdk1.6.0)
  • swftools
  • ImageMagick

I hadn’t had swftools and OpenOffice (and i was really upset the fact that I had to install OpenOffice on FreeBSD server) I couldn’t install it from packages because many ports had been installed before was later than many dependencies from latest OpenOffices package. Installing OpenOffice from a ports tree(/usr/ports/editors/ caused a lot of problem, because until that moment all ports had been installed with option WITHOUT_X11=yes. But it’s a lyrical digression. I suppose you’ve been already installed required ports.

At first download  latest Openmeetings
At moment when I wrote this notes the latest was


run the OpenOffice in a headless mode:
#/usr/local/ \
-headless -nofirststartwizard \

# ps -aux | grep openoffice
howtobsd 96549 0.6 0.6 157740 52268 p0 S+ 4:58PM 0:00.33 /usr/local/ -headless -nofirststartwizard -accept=socket,host=localhost,port=8100;urp;

back to the folder red5 and edit configuration file:
#vim red5/webapps/openmeetings/conf/hibernate.cfg.xml

<!– User / Password –>
<property name=”connection.username”>mysqluser</property>
<property name=”connection.password”>userpassword</property>

<!– Database Settings –>
<property name=”connection.driver_class”>com.mysql.jdbc.Driver</property>
<!– for performance reasons changed to MyISAM from org.hibernate.dialect.MySQLInnoDBDialect –>
<property name=”dialect”>org.hibernate.dialect.MySQLMyISAMDialect</property>
<property name=”connection.url”>jdbc:mysql://localhost/openmeetings autoReconnect=true&amp; useUnicode=true&amp;createDatabaseIfNotExist=true&amp; characterEncoding=utf-8</property>

<property name=”hibernate.connection.CharSet”>utf8</property>
<property name=”hibernate.connection.characterEncoding”>utf8</property>
<property name=”hibernate.connection.useUnicode”>true</property>

Create database openmeetings with utf8_general_ci encoding and Let’s start:
#cd red5

Wait some time until appear
[Launcher:/openmeetings] - ##### loadEmot completed
And using 5080 ports connect with your video conferencing server by url: (change to your servers IP-adress or domain name)

You will be redirected to installation page.

  1. Приветствую!
    Пытаюсь вот сделать тоже самое – установить Openmeetings. Второй день в ступоре из-за офиса. Не запускается блин и все :) Пробовал из пакетов, пробовал собрать из портов – нифига, один и тот же результат – первый запуск, команда прожевывается без ошибок, в процессах ничего не появляется. Второй запуск – команда висит, т.к. остался лок от предыдущего запуска в хоуме пользователя.
    Подскажете, как побороть такое?
