Hi Alex,

In StreamPublisher the Server properties are set to:

streamPublisherVHost defaultVHost

streamPublisherApplication live/definst

I want to have multiple Applications with different content roots like

streamPublisherApplication live1/definst

But I get error as I cannot define a 2nd application.

Also in the smil script, can I have

Hi ,

you can use subdirectory name in SMIL, yes.

But you can’t use the module to create streams under multiply Wowza applications (content directories).

Thanks you
I was able to create multiple streams however I noticed something

I MUST Restart the Server before any changes can take effect rather than the Application.

.e.g any changes made to the *.smil file does not apply with restart of Application.

Is there a better way, without breaking live streams from another Application?

curl -X PUT \
-H 'Accept:application/json; charset=utf-8' \

For more info on how to restart the application and other related tasks:

Hi while trying to use Swagger to run commands I get this errors

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?><error><wowzaServer>4.8.0</wowzaServer><code>403</code><message>Your IP address ( has been blocked</message></error>

but server.xml has:


Am running the REST API Doc from a Web server on the same network!/applications


I used the code and it returned:

{“success”:true,“message”:“Application (testlive) shutdown”,“data”:null}
But the Application did not restart but stopped working

I then used

curl -X PUT \
-H 'Accept:application/json; charset=utf-8' \

It would not work, I had to restart from the restart through "Server|Server Setup|Restart

This shutdown all running services.

I tried using

curl --digest -u user:pass http://localhost:8086/schedules?appName=testlive&action=reloadSchedule

but the schedule did not refetch also.

Looks like StreamScheduling ONLY works with server restarts.
