The purpose of this post is to show the little steps needed in order to install newer versions of Red5. We will learn how to install Red5 1.0.8.
Requirement: Java 8
First of all we need to download the Red5 1.0.8 version from the official project repository at GitHub (https://github.com/Red5/red5-server/releases)
After uncompressing it we need to open a command-line pointing to Red5 root directory
Finally we just need to launch the server by using:
./red5.sh in Linux / OSx
red5.bat in Windows
Once we have launched the server we need to check if everything is OK by accessing to the Red5 Server default url (http://localhost:5080)
If we see a Red5 animation in the middle of the page, we have a correct installation of Red5 Server.
