    Default Where to put trial license in EC2 instance?

    I'm following the instructions in the EC2 Quick Start guide so I'll have a live video source with which to teach a Roku programming class on Wednesday (working great, by the way, thanks).

    I've requested and received a trial license, which I intend to play with after the class, ultimately doing daily livestreams from time to time.

    Problem is, I don't see where to put in the license key. What I got in the e-mail is a one-line string: "SVRT3-XXXXX-XXXX-etc." The instructions for EC2 say the license file is at /usr/local/WowzaMediaServer/conf/Server.license, but when I cat that file (in the AMI that I launched as an EC2 instance), it looks like this:

    -----BEGIN LICENSE-----
    (and then another five lines of this)
    -----END LICENSE-----

    Just copying the one-line license into a file and replacing Server.license doesn't work (restarting the Wowza server failed with errors). I haven't tried replacing that first line ("SVRC3-..."), because I figured the existing value was likely tied into the rest of the file somehow.

    So anyways, probably a stupid question, but if anyone could tell me what I'm supposed to do with this license key on EC2 with one of the canned AMIs, I'd appreciate it.

    Hi. Try replacing everything in the Serve.license with the content from the new license. Restart Wowza afterwards.
