How to configure another FTP server Machine as Wowza content directory.
I want to seperate Wowza server(machine1) and FTP server(machine2), in other words, I want to configure the Wowza content directory to another FTP server machine, when VOD the streaming, Wowza will play the streaming from another FTP server machine.
So, Lucy, you can change the path of your content drive by setting the <StorageDir> property in the Application.xml for your application.
In Windows you can mount a drive and/or use a UNC path. In Linux you can mount a remote NFS directory. If you can browse to those directories in your filesytem, you will be able to use that path as your <StorageDir> property.
There are probably utilities out there for making a remote FTP connection appear to be a mounted drive.
