    Post How to configure another FTP server Machine as Wowza content directory.

    Hi,

    I want to seperate Wowza server(machine1) and FTP server(machine2), in other words, I want to configure the Wowza content directory to another FTP server machine, when VOD the streaming, Wowza will play the streaming from another FTP server machine.
    How to configure? Can you help me?

    Thank you.

    What OS?

    So, Lucy, you can change the path of your content drive by setting the <StorageDir> property in the Application.xml for your application.

    In Windows you can mount a drive and/or use a UNC path. In Linux you can mount a remote NFS directory. If you can browse to those directories in your filesytem, you will be able to use that path as your <StorageDir> property.

    There are probably utilities out there for making a remote FTP connection appear to be a mounted drive.

    I use windows2008.
    According to your reply, I did following steps, but failed to vod from ftp machine.

    1. On FTP machine, share a directory, c:\wowza\content
    2. On Wowza machine, map a network drive, z:\, the source is FTP machine c:\wowza.
    3. Start FTP server, configure FTP share dir, z:\content.
    4. Navigator to <wowzadir>\conf directory, open application.xml, chang <StorageDir>${com.wowza.wms.context.VHostConfigHome}/content</StorageDir> to <StorageDir>Z:/content</StorageDir>.
    5. Start Wowza server.
    6. Publish live streaming streaming, stop.
    7. The streaming is not put to z:\content.

    Can you help to point which steps are wrong, or I leak steps, thank you very much.

    Hi
    Have you changed the "live" stream to "live-record" in order to save the content in that location?

    4.) Have the changes been made in the Application.xml in the conf/[Your-Application]/Application.xml?

    Is z:\content a mapped drive? There might be a permissions issue

    The user running the Wowza server needs to already be authenticated for the share drive/share in question.
