I think i’m in the right forum for this. I noticed something in the upgrade process of wowza when i had a faulty upgrade. I decided to rollback on another server, but i couldnt find my applications in the backup.
It has been since the first version of 4.x or in the first upgrade process.
The upgrade process runs smooth, the installer says it creates a backup. So far so good.
but why doesn’t it create a full backup of alle the applications and conf directory? I noticed it in the first time i did an update, that a backup zip was created. After i examined the zip file i noticed that problem.
These are the directories that have been backuped.
but what about the directories:
Is there a specific reason for it? Do you advise customers to create full backups first (i wouldn’t consider the content directory though, that should run at normal backups or is connected to another share). but im kinda curious what would be reason not to backup the other directories.
i also noticed after the update from 4.4.1 to 4.5 that a symlink has been created. So now /usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine points to /usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine-4.4.1
Whats the reason for that?
