    You can run Wowza in stand-alone mode: /bin/startup.bat (or This is a good idea during testing and development because you can see log output in the console immediately.

    Run Wowza as a service in production so that it starts when the machine reboots.

    I see that the error are happening in HTTP Provider created by me. But i create in a development environment with the same Wowza version. What would be a "major.minor version 52.0" error?

    That error occurs when there is a different java version running on the development environment compared to the proiduction environment. The development version is too new compared to the production version.
