cp -R dist/* /usr/local/red5/
cd /usr/local/red5
chmod 755 Red5.sh

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

Start Red5 in background:
cd /usr/local/red5
./Red5.sh >> red5.log &

Verify the correct ports are being bound to:
netstat -ant

 

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:
PS aux | grep red5
döda $process_id

Then start it again:
cd /usr/local/red5
./Red5.sh >> red5.log &

 

Can also deploy it as service to start automatically on server boot:

vi /etc/init.d/red5

#! /bin/sh
# put these contents at: /etc/init.d/red5
# change red5 directory path below as necessary
RED5_DIR=/usr/local/red5
