Thread: how to restart single application from command line (linux)

    Default how to restart single application from command line (linux)

    we are trying to automate our wowza servers particularly the modification of the origin server in the edge configuration
    then we need to restart only the edge application ...

    I am succesful in modify the edge configuration "Application.xml" using sed -i looking for <OriginURL> and replacing the line
    but then from linux the only thing i can do is to restart the whole wowza server via /etc/init.d/WowzaStreamingEngine restart

    Looked around for a method to restart only application and tried with but without much success on the Wowza V4

    Is there any more recent documentation about JMXCommandLine that works on v4 ?

    Thanks a lot

    Hemm ...
    Note: This functionality is only supported in Wowza Media ServerŪ 2 patch14 or greater.
    there is also this:

    but in the last comments:

    For Wowza 4 there is a change: replace "WowzaMediaPro" with "WowzaStreamingEngine".

    Sorry, that guide is not updated yet, but will be soon.

    no more updates since then ...

    This means that the article itself (content) was updated on 10-31-14, the last comment was indeed much earlier.
