Error ${WMSPIDFILE}: ambiguous redirect

I notice this message when I see status of the service (service WowzaStreamingEngine status)

/usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine/bin/ line 41: ${WMSPIDFILE}: ambiguous redirect

Appearly works fine, but I notice sometimes the Wowza crash and I need kill process and restart the Wowza, but I’m not sure if because this message issue.

It appears because of the need for it to work with older upstart services as well as systemd. Eventually we will be able to move to a single systemd way of doing this. Is it affecting your system in any way after startup?

Yes I can understand the concern there. We can runs some tests to find the true cause in a support ticket. The only way for us to have full access to your config files and logs.
