I just installed the FMSS software, but didn't choose to install Apache as I already have Apache on my server. I'm wanting to stream to Apple/Mac users as well as Windows users. Do I need to have a second instance of Apache installed or can I use the current Apache server already running on port 80?
I'm running CentOS 5.7 64 bit.
Thanks for using FMSS 4.5.
Yes, you can use your already installed Apache, given you add the necessary modules that come pre-installed on a FMS-bundled Apache, for your various scenarios.
This resouce can guide you : http://help.adobe.com/en_US/flashmediaserver/configadmin/WSd391de4d9c7 bd6093a7e2f8312a374a1bde-8000.html
It says to add these modules to Apache:
Since I didn't install Apache as part of the installation process, how do I get the modules I need? The only thing I have is what was in the zip file, all which are .so files.
Does the zip contain the following files ?
The rest of the files are present in the FMS installation directory itself, so you can copy them into the required location. But if the above files are not present, then you might have to again unzip the installation tar and pick up the files needed.
Thank you !
well you can't put a dll on a linux box so you probably don't need any of the .dll as these are Microsoft Dynamic Linked Libraries. If i remember right you get two installation directories when you install FMS on Linux are you sure you getting the correct files from the correct directories. Check these easy things out then i help you more. BTW why do you need to add .so to apache? I don't modify apache installation files but maybe you doing something other than connecting FMS to a .swf. What exactly are you doing and what FMS files/executables are you using?
I do have the three .so files you listed. I think chessplayer is right ? I'm running CentOS so I shouldn't need dll files, yes?
Chessplayer, I'm wanting to do a live video stream (as well as vob's) for mac and windows users. So I presume that in order to stream to iPad's, etc. I need to use http rather than rtmp?
well I can't advise you on how to install right now. I'm downloading CentOS and installing in a VM it will take me a day or so to set it up and Tomorrow I have a job Interview. So it will probably be Monday before i get FMS to work on Linux. When I know more about installing on Linux I'll post the knowlege here even if you have already solved all your problems by then.
I followed the instructions, but Apache won't restart.
I added the following lines near the beginning of httpd.conf:
LoadModule hlshttp_module modules/mod_hlshttp.so

I tried to call Adobe and get some phone support for this product, but they told me that phone support is not available and that I needed to come to this discussion forum to open a case. I'm amazed that a person could spend $1000 on any software and not get phone support.
I would appreciate an answer to my question, please. I followed the directions at the URL that was provided (which had a strange mix of instructions for windows and linux users that would not work), and all I got was an error from Apache and Apache would not restart.
EliYah777 FMS 4.5 is brand new I cannot help you untill monday. I believe you will have to link the so I don't know how to explain this at this time I have to research on google. I know you have to do this to get flash player audio and stuff to work on older versions of Linux so look up linking or something if you don't want to wait untill Monday. Adobe has never provided phone support they would be swamped with calls. Using a media server is not trivial and you should be already well versed in Linux debugging procedures before even attempting to modify apache or anything else. if i could tell you to use apt-get or yum to get it work I would but i really think you are going to have to dive deep into the depths of Linux as I highly doubt there are any tutorials on this subject yet. LINUX IS NOT WINDOWS.
The server is working fine as far as regular streaming is concerned. It streams live and vod content without a hitch. I'm just trying to get the http delivery working for apple/ios users. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
EliYah777 I think the answers you seek are in my most recent posts on this forum so I won't bother with repeating them here. I will probably have this working and tested by the end of the day today Monday Sept. 26 2011 currently 6:13 AM Central Standard Time
