change applications config folder location


Is it possible to change the location of application config files? I am using Wowza on Linux centos 7. The default location now is: /usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine/conf. Is it possblle to change it to for example to something like this: /usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine/conf/AppConf

thank you in advance

Thank you for your answer,

I would like to set a different directory only for streaming applications not for all config files. Is there a way to do that?

You can with VOD. I am not sure what you are working with though.

While we do not recommend this, there is a value to change the config location WMSCONFIG_HOME to point to a new location for configs. It then looks in WMSCONFIG_HOME/conf for the config.

That said, this idea could be problematic one because general config goes under conf/ but each application puts their individual Application.xml under conf//.

So conf/AppConf looks like the folder to contain the individual app’s config, not the general config. This could cause trouble with this and confuse engine and the Engine Manager. Bottom line is yes you can but please tread carefully.
