Thread: Ugh! Bind failed, try again

    Default Ugh! Bind failed, try again

    OK - I've been around long enough to have checked the obvious - but can't for the life of me understand why the dang server won't start.

    I'm a monthly subscriber with a CENTOS instance on AWS that I'm currently developing with. Wowza 3 had been working fine a month back, but now I'm ready to get going on it again and I'm getting:

    2012-02-10	15:13:37	EST	comment	vhost	WARN	200	_defaultVHost_	Bind failed, try again ([any]:1935): java.net.BindException: Address already in use	-	-	-	43.79

    I've rebooted - with no success
    I"ve got ports open through my Security Group
    I've grabbed the latest WowzaMediaServer-3.0.x-3.0.4

    No Joy!

    Any Ideas? Anyone?

    In Linux, it's "netstat -p" to see the program associated with the port. You'll have to figure out what that program is and stop it, change its port, or change Wowza's port.

    Check that you don't have the Wowza service already loaded. Do "ps aux |grep java". Look in the Wowza User Guide for info on how to start/stop the Wowza service.

    Well

    • netstat -p hasn't identified any process
    • no java processes running
    • I've removed the server by deleting the installation from /usr/local
    • I've re-installed


    I still get the bind error :-(

    The startup session follows:

    etc.
    etc.
    etc.
    Next I'm going to try installing on a new EC2 instance

    Well - I did imply it was a dev server - looks like someone had tinkered with the Adobe FMS settings and it was running though not "obviously" using the port. You don't see it in Netstat, but I think something funny happens with Wowza tries to compete at startup for ports etc.

    Problem solved - another 2 hours of my life I won't get back HA!
