  • Hodor Hodor,

    Are you self-hosted or hosted with UNA?

    I am self-hosted on a Linux VPS (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS) and found this installation from the Rocket Chat documentation to be incredibly easy and relatively config free

    I don't recall specific key placement for Rocket Chat but all my certs are handled through the Electronic Frontier Foundations Certbot so they are stored in: 

    /etc/letsencrypt/live/[domain name]

    • Hello Hodor Hodor !

      All main info about the connection with Chat server you may find in the "Information" tab of the RocketChat app. It contains also the link to the key generator area of OAuth2 server app.

          • Has anyone actually gotten rocket chat to work properly? I am having a lot of trouble with this.

              • Well, I’m glad you have it figured out. I have access to the back end you showed but just no chat that a member can join. It would help if their instructions somewhere from start to finish how to get it set up.

                • I've learned by trial and error over a few years!

                  A lot of reading on the backend and the design was not overnight results either.

                  This version as I've mentioned is the "snap" install, not the version supplied by Alex. I can and have used that version for many years but last year changed to this version for my reasons.

                  It is a simple procedure, to be honest, and I think that is why the documentation is vague.

                  I'm able to help some members if the install is fresh, no matter what flavor you go with.

Also how to I get it to video chat using a mobile phones camera? The settings seem to be defaulted on webcam which isn't an option for mobile phones. I want it to be able to turn on Android and iPhones cameras and microphones. Also would like to take out some uneccisary buttons that were meant for keyboard and PC. Anyone know exactly where I can do this in studio?
