Thread: WowzaMediaServer in ubuntu 10.04 does not start after boot

    Default WowzaMediaServer in ubuntu 10.04 does not start after boot

    Hello, I cannot get Wowza to start at boot on a 10.04 ubuntu server.

    I've tried adding the following to the /etc/rc.local

    /etc/init.d/WowzaMediaServer start


    service WowzaMediaServer start

    but it doesn't get started
    the only way I can start it is if I do this manually

    Did you add both of those commands to rc.local? If so, only use the one that works interactively

    I tried them independently and it did not load with neither.

    double post -- mistake

    sudo update-rc.d WowzaMediaServer enable 2

    To install the service in the startup scripts for runlevel two. (I don't run this distro, so I've not tested this)

    nothing, it did not work, does startup works in CentOS?

    There is a note about this in the Quick Start Guide.

    chkconfig --level 345 WowzaMediaServer on
    Could you please try that and let me know if it works? Thanks.

    Hi I just switched to CentOS 6 and reinstalled everything. It works fine in CentOS.
