Hi there, thanks for pointing this out, we have an issue with the link on the Wowza account page.

This should work for now while we update the Wowza site @DEO_ETV

If you are updating to Wowza Streaming Engine 4.8.19 from a base installation of Wowza Streaming Engine 4.8.17 or earlier, before you update, you need to install a supported version of Java, such as Java 11-12 or the OpenJDK Java SE JRE 11.0.2 installed with Wowza Streaming Engine 4.8.18 (available from the Downloads tab of My Account). Then instruct Wowza Streaming Engine to use that version of Java according to the instructions in Manually install and troubleshoot Java on Wowza Streaming Engine.
