These questions have to do with Windows (Server 2003) administration, not with Wowza directly. I've upgraded a customer's Wowza 2 to Wowza 3 and got the basic live streaming working. I've done this a few times on Linux, but I have very little recent Windows experience so the last couple bits are stumping me. Pointers would be welcome.
1) When I look at the Services entries, the Wowza service is referring to the old Wowza 2 binaries. I can't seem to modify the binary path in the Admin Tools/Service panel. I've looked up online how to create a new Windows service, but so far when I follow the cookbook approach (sc create "Wowza3" binPath="C:\Program Files (x86)\Wowza Media Systems\WowzaMediaServer 3.0.5\bin\WowzaMediaService.conf") all I get back is a usage message. So question number 1 is, how do I create a Windows Service for the newly upgraded Wowza 3? I had kind of been hoping that the install process would do that for me.
With a little luck I'll not have to do any more Wowza installs on Windows. I live Wowza, but WIndows... every time I have to use it I get reminded anew why I dropped Windows in favor of Linux so many years ago.
ps: I removed my second question, which had to do with killing off IIS. I forgot that I could send HLS requests to port 1935 instead of port 80.
