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

/etc/init.d/red5 start

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