problem running on another server

hi charlie

i’ve changed my server to take a dedicated one for wowza, and i re installed wowza on the new server. Java install was ok, java -version gives me the correct path and version, but when starting the server here is what i have:

Configure logging: file:///usr/local/WowzaMediaServerPro/conf/

jmx remote works nice, but the server is not up and listening on por 1935…need help

is this a kernel matter ?

weird as i have wowza working on this kernel:


but not on this one:

both on red hat 7.2 machine…


I have never seen this problem before. I just found this web page that describes this problem:

It is suggesting that you add the Java swith:

To the Wowza Pro startup. To do this edit the following two files and add this qualifier to the JAVA_OPTS value near the top of the file:


Please let me know right away if this does not work for you and I will dig in.


Great! I will add this to the README.html, bugs and useful code sections on the forums.


just to make sure, my line should look like this:

JAVA_OPTS="-Xmx768M .PollSelectorProvider"


ok, now i have this:

[root@ns29249 bin]# ./

Exception in thread “main” java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: /PollSelectorProvider

okay its was a space added in the code line…so now i have the server on apparently…so it works

thanks again charlie
