What is the root directory for wowza server

For apache - www

For IIS - inetpub\wwwroot

what is for Wowza - ???

In order to make a REST API call from silverlight application, I want to place some configuration files like clientaccesspolicy.xml and crossdomain.xml at root directory of wowza server.

The REST API call is something like this “http://localhost:8087/v2/servers/defaultServer/vhosts/defaultVHost/applications/live/instances/definst/incomingstreams/”

So I want to know where does this http://localhost:8087/ points to?

Thanks for your time.

Hello Mihir,

I did find the ticket where this question was addressed but wanted to reply to this post for anyone else that may come across this Forum thread:

The RESTInterface is not a web server that is mapped to a web-root folder. It receives REST API commands over port 8087 and executes the commands on top of the Wowza software’s underlying Java API.

The clientaccesspolicy.xml and crossdomain.xml files located in the conf/ directory are accessible by using the following:


These documents are usually required for streaming applications.
