1. To run Wowza manually on Linux:
According to this page: http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....tartStandalone
There are two methods:
~$ /etc/init.d/WowzaMediaServer start
The startup.sh script is found in /usr/local/WowzaMediaServer/bin/
ERROR: Missing license file: (/usr/local/WowzaMediaServer/conf/Server.license)
You must first run Wowza Media Server 3 in standalone mode to enter serial number. Execute the following commands to run in standalone mode:
Also, the license is in the correct place and should not be causing any issues.
/sbin/service WowzaMediaServer start
If I do it manually:
-bash: /sbin/service: No such file or directory
It starts, but not as a service. As soon as the window closes, so does Wowza.
So the docs are wrong, and the thing won't start.
So here are my three questions:
1. How do I start it manually.
2. How do I have it auto-start as a service (Very funny: "If your platform doesn't support chkconfig, see your Linux distro documentation." and leave it at that.)
3. How do I get it to stay on even when closing the terminal.
[And, unrelated, #4: Red5 has free live support (IRC) and very good docs. Wowza has no live support, an email support that has thus far incorrectly answered questions, and docs that are wrong all over the place - the PDFs are terrible, the websites is out of date, and the terminal feedback is as stated. (I complained about this path issue FOUR years ago.) I am feeling a little bad about plunking down $1K on something that I can't even get to start. Is there any place I can find a list of advantages of Wowza that will make me feel better about the purchase.]
