Deploy your custom apps in/usr/local/red5/webapps .
I exempel VideoWhisper Red5 RTMP application needed to run Whisper solutions.

Start Red5 in background:
cd /usr/local/red5

You need to restart red5 each time you add webapps to /usr/local/red5/webapps or change configuration or restart server.

Close Red5:
cd /usr/local/red5

Or kill Red5 processes:

döda $process-id

Then start it again:
cd /usr/local/red5
./ >> red5.log &

vi /etc/init.d/red5

#! /bin/sh
# put these contents at: /etc/init.d/red5
# change red5 directory path below as necessary

ECHO “Starting Red5 Service
sudo su root -ccd $RED5_DIR; ./ > /var/log/red5.log &”

ECHO “Shutting down red5
sudo su root -c ‘killall red5 java
