    Question Upgrading Wowza on Amazon AMI instance

    Hello!

    I'm curious if it is possible to upgrade an existing AMI instance to the latest Wowza version and what are the steps?

    Thanks

    Yes, you can do it following these steps in an SSH client, starting with logging in as ec2-user:

    >ec2-user
    >sudo su -
    root>cd /home/wowza/updates
    root>mkdir WowzaStreamingEngine-Update-4.0.3
    root>cd WowzaStreamingEngine-Update-4.0.3
    root>wget http://www.wowza.com/downloads/WowzaStreamingEngine-4-0-3/WowzaStreamingEngine-Update-4.0.3.zip
    root>unzip http://www.wowza.com/downloads/WowzaStreamingEngine-4-0-3/WowzaStreamingEngine-Update-4.0.3.zip
    root>service WowzaStreamingEngine stop
    root>service WowzaStreamingEngineManager stop
    root>cd linux
    root>chmod +x update.sh
    root>./update.sh
    root>service WowzaStreamingEngine start
    root>service WowzaStreamingEngineManager start
    Of course you would adjust the file name and update folder (following this upgrade guide) name if/as necessary, but the above is the right file name at this writing for the upgrade patch on the Production Build page

    Follow up question ... same method works for Wowza 4.1, yes?
    Also, will it affect the server monitoring history available through the dashboard?
    Thank you
