I am experiencing something odd when using the command line to start/stop Wowza Streaming Engine 4.8.0. When prompted by the installer, I specified “n” when asked “Start Wowza Streaming Engine automatically [Y/n]:”.
So when I use this command to start the service:
sudo service WowzaStreamingEngineManager start
Port 8088 works correctly but port 1935 is not alive. The 8088 web page says that Streaming Engine is not running.
And when I type in this additional command, everything seems to work correctly. This is the command I used on 4.7.8.
sudo systemctl restart WowzaStreamingEngine.service
And if I go the other way (systemctl resrtart only), I get the opposite behavior (responds to 1935 but not 8088). It looks like there are two separate systems that are starting differently. And what’s the right way to take the system down?
This is a new 4.8.0 install on a on a fresh Ubuntu 18.04.3 system, developer license, running in a cloud server.
