I have an old server (I began renting it in 2006) working with a Gentoo streaming distribution and Flash Media Server 2. I never upgraded this server because if I did so it would have stopped working and I wouldn't have been able to fix the problems. In fact, it has a special/custom setup designed for streaming only (no mysql database, no http, only rtmp).
So I've decided to rent a new server, with a normal distribution (CEntos 5.5) and without any administration panel (like CPAnel/WHM, etc.) because it's not a very powerful server and I want it to stream videos only (no mails, no website, etc.).
Can you advise me about the steps for setting up the streaming server ?
Centos 5.5 is installed...
So I believe, I now only need to :
1- secure the server (installiing software like Shorewall, Fail2Ban, etc. , changing SSH port, etc.).
2- install and setup Red5.
I've never done this before. So, are these the correct steps ?
Do you know about tutorials which would help me doing this ?
