    Unhappy can't stop WowzaMediaServer3 after install of WowzaStreamingEngine


    I've installed WowzaStreamingEngine today. I wasn't expected that it will lauch WowzaStreamingEngine during the installation. My WowzaMediaServer 3 Was still running.

    So now WowzaStreamingEngine is not working and I can't stop WowzaMediaServer 3

    xx.xx.xx.xx:1935 shows
    Wowza Media Server 3 Perpetual Edition 3.6.2 build5334

    when i want to stop it :
    service WowzaMediaServer stop

    ERROR: Missing license file: (/usr/local/WowzaMediaServer/conf/Server.license)
    You must first run Wowza Media Server 3 in
    standalone mode to enter serial number. Execute the
    following commands to run in standalone mode:

    cd /usr/local/WowzaMediaServer
    when i try to shutdown with ./ i get this:

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/wowza/wms/bootstrap/Bootstrap
    Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.wowza.wms.bootstrap.Bootstrap
    at Method)
    at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
    at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(
    at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
    Could not find the main class: com.wowza.wms.bootstrap.Bootstrap. Program will exit.
    I am completely lost.

    Any ideas?

    Have you tried a re-boot?
    You might want to uninstall Wowza Streaming Engine, re-boot, make sure Wowza 3 is not running and reinstall Wowza Streaming Engine.

    I hope this helps.
