enginemanager not listening on port 8088?

I’ve had Wowza Streaming Engine running for a few weeks, working on getting my player config tuned properly. Today when I tried to go in to look at the server state, I got a surprise: http://:8088/enginemanager/ doesn’t respond (gives me "Safari can’t open the page “:8088/enginemanager/” because Safari can’t connect to the server “”.

I can connect to port 8086 to look at serverinfo or connectioncounts just fine, and I can still play live videos over port 1935.

“netstat -nat” doesn’t show anything open on port 8088, and “lsof -p | grep TCP” also shows nothing listening. Restarting Wowza didn’t appear to make any difference.

Any pointers on what I should be looking for?

Never mind - I had restarted WowzaStreamingEngine but not WowzaStreamingEngineManager


You need to make sure that both Wowza Streaming Engine and the Wowza Streaming Engine Manager are both running.
