Mumble uses a client–server architecture which allows users to talk to each other via the same server (murmur). It has a very simple administrative interface and features high sound quality and low latency. All communication is encrypted to ensure user privacy.

The official Mumble project decided to no longer provide static murmur server binaries starting with version 1.4.x.
This guide uses the self-compiled server binary, which currently comes with some limitations, i.e. MySQL is currently not supported as a database. For Ubernauts who have been hosting a Mumble server based on this guide before Mumble v1.4, this might be a breaking change. The default database for a Mumble server is SQLite and requires no further configuration.
Please read the release notes of every new release. Releases of the self-compiled server binary may occur more often than the offical Mumble releases. However, no warranty is made regarding up-to-dateness and functional correctness. Consider subscribing to new releases, e.g. by using uu-notify.
Check the GitHub release section and copy the release tag version of the latest release. Set the variable
MURMUR_VERSION to the version you just copied.
The server for mumble is called murmur

Extract the zip file:
[isabell@stardust mumble]$ unzip murmur-static.zip Archive: murmur-static.zip inflating: murmur.ini inflating: murmur.x86_64
Make the binary executable:
[isabell@stardust mumble]$ chmod +x murmur.x86_64 [isabell@stardust mumble]$
To make the application accessible from the outside, open a port in the firewall:
[isabell@stardust ~]$ uberspace port add Port 40132 will be open for TCP and UDP traffic in a few minutes. [isabell@stardust ~]$
Edit the config file
~/mumble/murmur.ini to specify the desired port. Minimal config would look like this:
welcometext="<br />Welcome to this server running <b>Murmur</b>.<br />Enjoy your stay!<br />" port=<your_port> serverpassword=changeThisPassword! allowping=true bonjour=false
For more configuration options look at the documentation site.
~/etc/services.d/mumble.ini with the following content:
[program:mumble] command=%(ENV_HOME)s/mumble/murmur.x86_64 -fg -ini %(ENV_HOME)s/mumble/murmur.ini
After creating the configuration, tell supervisord to refresh its configuration and start the service:
[isabell@stardust ~]$ supervisorctl reread SERVICE: available [isabell@stardust ~]$ supervisorctl update SERVICE: added process group [isabell@stardust ~]$ supervisorctl status SERVICE RUNNING pid 26020, uptime 0:03:14 [isabell@stardust ~]$
If it’s not in state
RUNNING, check your configuration.
To connect to your server, open a Mumble client on your computer or phone and add a new server:
Port: your port
Username: any username you’d like
Uberspace already provides letsencrypt certificates. To add them, append these lines to your
murmur.ini and adjust your username and the domain.
The server needs to be restarted, before the certificates expire.
Therefore, add the following line to your contrab using
@monthly supervisorctl restart mumble > /dev/null
If there is a new version, backup your mumble folder:
[isabell@stardust ~]$ cp -rp mumble/ mumble-backup/ [isabell@stardust ~]$ ls -la | grep -i mumble-backup drwxrwxr-x. 4 isabell isabell 167 Dec 6 20:16 mumble-backup [isabell@stardust ~]$
Repeat the Installation steps, and finally execute:
[isabell@stardust ~]$ supervisorctl restart mumble mumble: stopped mumble: started [isabell@stardust ~]$
Connect to your server and if everything works fine, delete the backup:
[isabell@stardust ~]$ rm -rf mumble-backup/ [isabell@stardust ~]$
