Problem adding vhost administrator

Nov 8, 2013 12:07 AM

Hello guys,


I am using FMS 4.5.5 on my windows 7 PC.

I was able to add server admin on the FMS 4.5.5 but when I am trying to add a vhost administrator FMS admin console doesn't wan't to allow me in.

When I am trying to ping the server with server admin credentials (http://localhost:1111/admin/ping?auser=admin&apswd=adminadmin) it returns




<timestamp>11/8/2013 10:55:08 AM</timestamp></result>


But when I am using vhost admin credentials ( which have already been created I am given this error





<description>Admin user requires valid username and password.</description>

<timestamp>11/8/2013 10:57:26 AM</timestamp></result>



Application.xml and Vhost.xml have been taken from the ...\Flash Media Server 4.5\conf\_defaultRoot_\_defaultVHost_\

Vhost.xml has been modified accordingly. (<AppsDir></AppsDir> is picking up the right directory)

Users.xml file has been taken from ...\Flash Media Server 4.5\conf\ and appropriate user has been added to the file:



        <!-- This tag defines an administrator for the server. -->

        <User name="host311">

            <!-- Password for this vhost administrator. -->

            <Password encrypt="false">password12</Password>

            <!-- This admin can only connect to the server from the specified -->

            <!-- hosts. This is specified as a comma delimited list of        -->

            <!-- hostnames or domain names, and/or (full or partial) IP       -->

            <!-- addresses. For example,                                      -->

            <!-- ",,, 10.60"    -->


            <!-- This admin cannot connect to the server from any of the      -->

            <!-- specified hosts. This is specified as a comma delimited list -->

            <!-- of hostnames or domain names, and/or (full or partial) IP    -->

            <!-- addresses. For example,                                      -->

            <!-- ",,, 10.60"    -->


            <!-- Specifies the order in which to evaluate the <Allow> and     -->

            <!-- <Deny> tags. This can be "Allow,Deny" or "Deny,Allow". The   -->

            <!-- default is "Deny,Allow" which means that access is allowed   -->

            <!-- unless specified in <Deny> and not specified in <Allow>.     -->






May be there is no more such possibility to add vhost administrators

Please advise.



Thanks in advance.
