    Default How to install in Ubuntu desktop 10.04

    I tried to follow the instructions to install Wowza server on Ubuntu desktop 10.04, but I couldn't do it, so I did the followinng:
    sudo chmod +x WowzaMediaServer-2.1.2.deb.bin
    sudo ./WowzaMediaServer-2.1.2.deb.bin

    to run:
    cd /usr/local/WowzaMediaServer/bin
    sudo ./ without sudo, it didn't start

    Installing the examples happened the same. I have to use sudo
    After installing the examples, I can't run the tutorials because the owner of the content directory is root.
    How can I install and use Wowza in Ubuntu desktop ?

    It is best to install and run Wowza as root. I would uninstall and delete the /usr/local/WowzaMediaServer* folder:

    rm -rf /usr/local/WowzaMediaServer*

    Then login as root and install and run as root.
