Verifying that Wowza Streaming Engine 4.2 Is Running

After AWS CloudFormation creates the stack, perform the following steps to verify that Wowza Streaming Engine 4.2 is running on the Amazon EC2 instance that you provisioned through AWS CloudFormation.

To verify that Wowza Streaming Engine 4.2 is running

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the AWS CloudFormation console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/cloudformation/.

  2. In the region selector, choose the region in which you created the AWS CloudFormation stack.

  3. In the list of stacks, select the stack that you created in Creating an AWS CloudFormation Stack for Live Streaming.

  4. Choose the Outputs tab.

  5. On the Outputs tab, get the value of the WowzaServerLoginInfo key, which you'll use for login credentials in the next step.

  6. Choose the URL in the WowzaEngineManagerURL key, for example, http://ec2-xx-xx-xxx-xxx.compute-1.amazonaws.com:8088/enginemanager. When you're prompted for login credentials, use the value of the WowzaServerLoginInfo key that you got in step 5.

    Important

    This URL uses port 8088 to connect to the Amazon EC2 instance that is running Wowza Streaming Engine. Depending on your firewall settings, you might not be able to connect to the Amazon EC2 instance. If you have trouble, contact your network administrator.
