mv red5 /etc/init.d/
chmod 755 /etc/init.d/red5
cd /usr/local/red
chmod 755
ant -v

chmod 755 red5install


Its done !!!


if doesn’t work, please use the following method.

cd /etc/init.d/
touch red5
chmod 755 red5
vi red5


test -x $RED5_DIR/ || exit 5

case "$1" in
        echo -n "Starting Red5 Service"
        echo -n " "
        cd $RED5_DIR
        su -s /bin/bash -c "$RED5_DIR/ &" red5
        sleep 2
        echo -n "Shutting down red5"
        echo -n " "
        su -s /bin/bash -c "killall -q -u red5 java" red5
        sleep 2
        $0 stop
        $0 start

Then you can simply start, stop, and restart red5 from that script by typing:

/etc/init.d/red5 start

/etc/init.d/red5 stop
/etc/init.d/red5 restart
