Thread: Starting the service

  1. #1

    Default Starting the service

    I have found two different ways to start the engine in the documentation.

    1. cd /user/local/WowazaStreamingEngine/bin


    2. sudo service WowzaStreamingEngineManager start

    What is the difference between these two?

    Sorry for such a basic question, I'm new here.

    1. Starts the Wowza Streaming Engine as a console application and will only stay running as long as you are logged in and running your current session.
    2. Starts Wowza Streaming Engine as a service which will persist through logout/log in sessions, and may also allow Wowza Streaming Engine to
    start automatically this way each time the Server is started / restarted.

    But won't the second command open only the Manager?
