This post shows how to install Wowza on a server where there is another RTMP server, already installed, i.e. Red5. Run 2 rtmp servers at same time and allow applications to connect on both simultaneously.
First install Wowza Media Server. Update version if necessary.
chmod a+x WowzaMediaServer-2.0.0.rpm.bin
Then fill your Wowza Media Server license ( a free developer license for 10 connections can be used for testing):
Change rtmp port in /usr/local/WowzaMediaServer-2.0.0/conf/VHost.xml from 1935 to some other port not in use (i.e. 1936):
<!– Separate multiple ports with commas –>
<!– 80: HTTP, RTMPT –>
<!– 554: RTSP –>
Run Wowza in background. You can also add this to /etc/rc.d/rc.local to have it running on each server restart:
./startup.sh > start.log &
Now you’ll be able to access wowza rtmp applications with rtmp://your-server:1936/your-wowza-application while red5 applications will be accessible the old way with rtmp://your-server/your-red5-application .
An example of 2 rtmp servers running on same linux server is the VideoWhisper Webcam Video Recorder.
