How to connect to Wowza Streaming Engine Manager over HTTPS Issues on OS X


I ran into issues trying to get this article working for Wowza Streaming Engine 4.2 running on OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 Server

The default file has one additional parameter not in your examples for Linux.


I modified the file with the recommended parameters and keeping this additional parameter, used port --httpsPort=8090 and password --httpsKeyStorePassword=“password” restarted the service and both ports (8088 and 8090) didn’t work (i.e. https://[wowza-ip-address]:8890/enginemanager/ or http://[wowza-ip-address]: 8088/enginemanager/) and I had to restore the default file to get the production service backup and running.

Would nice if you added specific examples for OS X in addition to the existing Windows/Linux examples :sunglasses:

Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this issue?

Maybe, I edited the wrong section of code in the if-then-else statement? Should be the first code condition? If $CloudPlatformFlag is false?

if [[ 1 == $CloudPlatformFlag ]]; then
