To install BBB manually:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bigbluebutton 
sudo bbb-conf --clean
sudo bbb-conf --check


dpkg -l | grep bbb


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Set Static IP:

sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart


BigBlueButton uses 3 TCP ports:

port 80 for the obvious web interface
port 9123 for desktop sharing
port 1935 for Adobe Flash Media Server (RTMP?) 

If the ports above are opened/ forwarded (firewall/ router) you have to execute the following command (on bbb) to make it reachable from external:

sudo bbb-conf --setip your.domainname.com

Switching between Asterisk and FreeSWITCH

The BigBlueButton packages let you switch back and forth between using Asterisk and FreeSWITCH.

To switch from Asterisk to FreeSWTICH, do

sudo apt-get purge bbb-voice-conference 
sudo apt-get purge asterisk 
sudo apt-get install bbb-freeswitch-config 
sudo bbb-conf --clean 

To switch from FreeSWITCH to asterisk, do

 sudo apt-get purge bbb-freeswitch-config 
 sudo apt-get purge freeswitch 
 sudo apt-get install bbb-voice-conference 
 sudo bbb-conf --clean
