Please confirm what version of JAVA are you using ? Also we have added one more step ( Step #4) in above tutorial, Please check that and complete it.
Hello, i was Installing Red5 the way you wrote down up above.
I iwould like to add a few things for ppl may having the same Problems like me.
1) in this Java Installtion Link :
The Url contains an Authorisation code like allmost the most Links for JDK so its Neccessary to download the desired version from the oracle archive (Oracla account needed)
2) i recognized you forgett to explain (for us windows gui junkies) that you may use annoter user than root to execute and may only be able to change and install something only as root, so the sudo command is left here.
3) After Installation and Build of red 5 a common error would be thisone when startup
“Failed to get local hostname java.net.UnknownHostException”
This belongs to the hostfile—
there must be added at least one line:
infront of the 127.0.0.1…. line that allready exists.
and btw for us windows ppl host file is editable in vim with
to save ESC (2times) than hit :wq and ENTER
Man Your tutorial here is great but for us windows guys linux terminal sometimes iss the hell itselfs
We have updated both of articles as per you suggestion.
Thanks a lot.
You have a mistake in ‘echo ‘export JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk1.7.0_17′ >> /etc/bashrc’ it must be ‘echo ‘export JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk1.7.0_25′ >> /etc/bashrc’
