Install the BigBlueButtonBn and RecordingBn plugins

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and Mac OS X) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). Learn more.

Follow these steps:

  • Download the latest BigBlueButtonBn and RecordingsBn versions and unzip them:

    $ wget https://https://moodle.org/plugins/pluginversions.php?plugin=mod_bigbluebuttonbn/mod_bigbluebuttonbn_moodle31_2016051905.zip
    $ unzip mod_bigbluebuttonbn_moodle31_2016051905.zip
    $ wget https://https://moodle.org/plugins/pluginversions.php?plugin=mod_recordingsbn/mod_recordingsbn_moodle31_2016051904.zip
    $ unzip mod_recordingsbn_moodle31_2016051904.zip
    
  • Copy the folders to installdir/apps/moodle/htdocs/mod/:

    $ cp -R bigbluebuttonbn/ installdir/apps/moodle/htdocs/mod/
    $ cp -R recordingsbn/ installdir/apps/moodle/htdocs/mod/
    
  • Login to your Moodle site as administrator. Moodle will detect the new modules and prompt you to “Upgrade”.

  • Click the “Upgrade Moodle database now” button. The activity module will install mod_bigbluebuttonbn and mod_recordingsbn.

  • Click the “Continue” button. You’ll be prompted to configure the activity module.

  • Enter the URL and salt (security key) to your BigBlueButton server (or use the default values for testing).

  • Click the “Save Changes” button.

At this point, enter any course, turn editing on, and add a BigBlueButtonBN activity link to the class.
