    Default Getting "ERROR: Server.xml not found: exiting." in Eclipse IDE 2 with WSE4


    i'm gettin this error in my Eclipse Wowza IDE 2 on Ubuntu 12.04.

    ERROR: Server.xml not found: exiting.
    The Server.xml is in "/usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine-4.0.0/conf" and the access rights seems correct.

    The Eclipse VM-Arguments are:


    Would you please show me the right direction to get WSE4 started in Eclipse?

    FYI: There is a previous "Wowza Media Server 3.6" installation on my system. in "/usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine" for another Wowza-Projekt I'm working on. Maybe that has something to do with the problem.

    Thanks you very much!

    Try deleting the build.xml, also delete the project without deleting the files. Then re-create project. This usually works.

    Hi Salvadore,

    thanks for your reply.

    It doesn't work for me. I've created a clean, new project and my build.xml looks like this:

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <project name="TestProject" default="jar" basedir="..">

    <property name="wowza.lib.dir" value="/usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine/lib"/>
    <property name="jar.filename" value="TestProject.jar"/>
    <property name="" value="bin"/>

    <target name="jar">
    <jar jarfile="${wowza.lib.dir}/${jar.filename}">
    <fileset dir="${}"/>

    When I test the project, the error is still shown.

    Any other Ideas?

    I tried it out, and was able to replicate the problem, which happens when I try to run Wowza in Eclipse without the right permissions. Open a terminal and su to root, then navigate to the eclipse application and open it like this in the terminal:


    That works for me, Eclipse opens and will run Wowza.
