    Default EC2 AMI 4.0.1 upgrade to 4.0.3, possible?

    I'm having trouble finding any references to updating my Wowza system to 4.0.3. I started a BYO license of Wowza 4.0.1 on EC2, and attempted (making assumptions here) to upgrade to WowzaStreamingEngine-Update-4.0.3.zip

    Following the linux process, I received the following log:

    Verifying running as administrative user
    Verifying Java 1.6 or greater is available
    Locating installation directory
    Running Wowza Streaming Engine update installer

    This will uninstall Wowza Streaming Engine 4.0.1 - Build 10615 from your system.

    The update will be removed from your installation at: /usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine

    Detected operating system: linux
    The installed version is not the same as this update version. %nUninstall cannot proceed until the correct update version is used.



    Thoughts? Can I run latest release on the EC2 instance?

    Yes, this should work for AWS EC2 Marketplace instance.

    Do you have this exact folder?: /usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine/updates/WowzaStreamingEngine-Update-4.0.3/

    With the WowzaStreamingEngine-Update-4.0.3.zip unzipped into that folder?

    Hi pttrtim,

    The text you copied is indicating you tried to uninstall a 4.0.1 update from your system with a 4.0.3 update. You don't need to remove a prior update to use the 4.0.3 update. It's a comprehensive update that will take any 4.0.x.yy version up to 4.0.3. So you should be able to "sudo ./update.sh" from the /usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine/updates/<4.0.3 update dir>/linux directory.

    I had the same problem, but I found the error in front of my mac:

    I executed the ./update.sh with the parameter -u because I scrolled down the update-website to quickly :-)

    Hi,
    Please can you elaborate, I'm not sure if you have/haven't got an issue with upgrading.

    If you're having an issue we have a guide for updating to a later version which can be found below.

    Hi Jason,

    I am also using Amazon EC2 Wowza AMI. Are you saying that it is now possible to update server instance? I was told before that I cannot update my Wowza version and I have to start a new AMI with the most recent build.
    What about upgrades, instead of updates?

    Thanks,

    Roger

    I was referring to updating via the WowzaStreamingEngine-Update-[version].zip method Richard mentioned.

    If you're referring to downloading the new installer and upgrading via a new installation then I also recommend that you create a new instance as it has the required setting for Amazon EC2 pre-configured which you would have to do manually if you simply installed over the top of your current version.
