    Default How to undo a wowza 3 trial installation

    Hello,

    We installed a trial version of Wowza 3, and haven't made a decision about whether or not to upgrade. On the same machine we were previously running wowza version 2.1.1. Our license key for the trial version expired, and now we would like to continue using version 2.1.1, but when i try to turn on the server i get the following output

    # ./startup.sh 
    Configure logging: file:///usr/local/WowzaMediaServer/conf/log4j.properties

    I'm definitely running the right startup.sh. It's in the WowzaMediaServer-2.1.1/bin directory. Is it possible that the trial version of wowza overwrote the 2.1.1's startup script? What can I do to fix this?

    Default

    It's because setenv.sh has these lines:

    WMSAPP_HOME=/usr/local/WowzaMediaServer
    WMSCONFIG_HOME=/usr/local/WowzaMediaServer

    Which point the symlink that was created when you installed WMS3.

    To fix do:

    cd /usr/local
    rm WowzaMediaServer
    ln -s WowzaMediaServer-2.1.1/ WowzaMediaServer


    But, I recommend just upgrading. Is there a reason you don't wish to do this?

    Your system clock must be wrong, set in the future.
