Thread: Change IP address?

  1. #1

    Default Change IP address?

    I installed Wowza Streaming Engine on my AWS instance, and I have Lamp running on it and serving a web site. I only have 1 ip assigned to the EC2 instance at this time.

    When I look in the WSE admin, the IP it shows is not the ip to my site. If I do http://[my-actual-ip]:1935 I see the confirmation, but if I do the IP it shows ( I do not get the confirmation.

    1) How do I change the IP to my current one?

    2) Wil I have an issue using only one IP, or do I need to assign a IP just for WSE?

    Hi Brian,

    IP/port combinations have to be unique, so one IP/Port combo for Wowza, and a different IP/Port combo for LAMP. By default Wowza will bind to all IP's that are available. To override this you can configure your VHost.xml
    file to use a specified IP. In your VHost.xml file change:
    You will need to change this for all the host ports setup in your VHost.xml file.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Can I use the same ip as I am using for the website?

    (I think this is how it is now on my older Wowza Media Server that is not AWS).

    @BrianPss - Yes since your website runs on port 80 (http://) or 443 (https://) and WSE runs on port 8088.
