Steps to install RED5


The steps for installing RED5 are as follows:

1. Install Java – JDK and JRE

* For installing Java JDK and JRE, we can use the RPM. Visit the link

“http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp”.

* Setup the environment variables to include the path for java.

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/

2. Install Apache ant

wget http://apache.mirror.transip.nl/ant/binaries/apache-ant-1.7.0-bin.tar.gz
tar -zxf apache-ant-1.7.0-bin.tar.gz
mv apache-ant-1.7.0 /opt/ant
ln -s /opt/ant/bin/ant /usr/bin/ant

* Setup the environment variables to include the path for Apache ant.

export ANT_HOME=/opt/ant

3. Now download and install RED5.

wget http://dl.fancycode.com/red5/0.6.3/src/red5-0.6.3.tar.gz
tar -zxf red5-0.6.3.tar.gz
mv red5-0.6.3 red5
cd red5
/opt/ant/bin/ant prepare
/opt/ant/bin/ant build

4. Now directory “dist” contains compiled files and ready to run the server

cd dist
sh red5.sh
