How to change an Application's name?

We created a series of Applications on a WSE. Now, we want to rename those applications. How do we do it?

Go to the installation folder of WSE; change the names of the subfolders in /applications and /conf. Then edit /conf/[applicationname]/Application.xml and change the application name there too. It should work without restarting Wowza, though it’s recommended to do so.

By the way, please make sure you post your questions in the correct forum. The “Find a Consultant” forums are meant for hiring someone to do a Wowza-related job for you. Your question would fit better in the “Wowza Streaming Engine” forums at

I think that’s inconvenient way to change name, I hope Wowza could release a feature to change application name easier.

I will add this as a feature request.

Just copy the application to a new name…The feature is already there
