Instalando RED5 no RedHat/Centos ou Linux :)

The following steps are intended to automate the installation of Red 5 versions 0.5 , 0.6.3 and 0.7.0 .

1. Download the red5 installer script ,

Note : Do not download the script to some location where every one can access it as someone may execute it and overwrite an old installation !

2. Make it executable,

chmod +x red5_install

3. Execute the script,


When the script is executed, it would ask for the red5 version to be installed. There are 3 choices as of now.. 0.7.0 , 0.6.3 and 0.5
Make the choice by entering the digits 1, 2 or 3 . Pressing any other key will select the latest version , 0.70 .

# ./red5_install

Hello ,Please choose the RED5 version : (1,2,3 or 4)

1. RED5 0.7.0
2. RED5 0.6.3
3. RED5 0.5
Press Any other key to install 1. RED5 0.7.0

After the version is selected, the process is automated . If everything goes well, you will see something similar to the following as the last line,

[DEBUG] 5467 main org.red5.server.Standalone.debug ) Startup done in: 5468 ms

Here the time ‘5648 ms’ may vary with different versions and servers. You can exit from this screen by entering the key combination of control and c (^c) as this should shutdown the red5 server normally.

Else if you get any error please leave a word at our help desk and we can install it for you.

If everything goes right, then red5 would be installed in /usr/local/red and it can be started by executing,


service red5 start
