Thread: Upgrading from Pre-built EC2 AMI (WMS 3.1.2) to WMS 3.5.X

    Default Upgrading from Pre-built EC2 AMI (WMS 3.1.2) to WMS 3.5.X

    Hi,

    I have three (3) Wowza servers on Amazon EC2, two (2) of which are already running on version 3.5.0 (ami-ea4605b8) while the other is version 3.1.2 (ami-b4f9bfe6).
    I need to upgrade the Wowza ver 3.1.2 to 3.5.x but I'm a little confused about which procedure should I use.

    I'm wondering if the link below is applicable to pre-built Amazon EC2 (Wowza) AMI.

    as well as this one:

    If not, what is the proper way to upgrade my EC2 AMI (Wowza 3.1.2) to version 3.5.0 (or maybe 3.5.2)?


    Thanks,

    Roger

    Roger,

    Typically these instances are not update, you just start a new AMI with the most recent build. You could apply the 3x to 3.5.2 patch, but you will have to re-make the VHost.xml file in the patch. Take a close look at that file, compare to yours, see what changes of yours need to be preserved, and see what is specific to EC2 that needs to be preserved. I don't think any of the other files will be a problem for EC2 instance, just that VHost.xml
