I just installed Wowza Media Server 2 on a Linux machine running CentOS 5.4. However, I got the following problem when trying to use it,
I installed the package from rpm and created conf/Server.license file and put license key into the file. When trying to run /etc/init.d/WowzaMediaServer start, the command line returns immediately OK. However, nothing happened after about 5 minutes (no logs generated, port 1935 is not alive). Not sure what is happening in that time. Then after about 5 minutes, logs will start flowing saying start started, etc. and server seems to be working fine.
Running /etc/init.d/WowzaMediaServer stop won’t stop the server. After many tries to stop the server and failed, it tries to kill the server using kill command. But the Wowza processId seems to be changed by the stop command send to the bootstrap. As a result, stop won’t actually stop the process.
Can someone help me to identify what’s the real issue here?
