    Hi,

    Yes, it is certainly possible however most shared hosting providers do not allow it as it impacts too much on the other users of the hosting service.

    To install Wowza on any server, you need root or admin access and in most cases, the service is run as the root user, especially if using port 80 or 443 (for http, https or rtmps streaming).

    If installing on a server that is already configured for other services, you need to make sure that there are no port conflicts with the other services. This may mean allocating specific ip addresses to Wowza or to the other services running on the server.

    Apart from that, the installation is pretty straight forward and would be the same as for a standalone server.

    Hi,

    Wowza will run on Linux, Windows, Mac OSX. It runs in Java so is platform independant. We suggest using a 64bit Server version of Java for the best performance. The number of cpu cores and amount of ram depends on what type of streaming you are wanting to do. Good performance can be had with 8 cpu cores and 8 - 16 GB ram. If you are doing mainly vod streaming then Raid 0 or Raid 10 with multiple disks is recommended for the vod storage.

    The only difference between a dedicated server installation and a shared server installation is making sure Wowza does not conflict with other services such as web servers. You need to make sure that Wowza and any web servers have different ip address allocations if both are using http or https ports.
