Checking FMS server status using FMSCheck Version 1.0.0 r15. Documentation for this is found here:http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FlashMediaS ... -7fe8.html
I recall there being a configuration file (text) that disclosed which Apache to start. Or perhaps in the FMS Admin Console
Try looking for a file named RootInstall/conf/fms.ini.
Here's a snippet I found in my notes too:
On Windows, run the ApacheMonitor.exe application manually. Alternately,
you can set up Apache as a Windows service that starts and stops
itself at start and shutdown.
The FMScheck program and the Apache monitor Toneee mentionned must give me some insights. Have to look into it next week as I'm not around my desk right now. Xampp's Apache with Moodle work fine. When I installed FMS (with the Apache2.2 unchecked in the installer) I see a server in the FMSadmin. I could even stream a movie on the server machine. But that was when I doubleclicked the FMSfrontpage index.html file directly I recall
localhost is taking me to the xampp/htdocs like it's supposed to. And so is http://server_ip/index.html
on a remote machine. But streaming a movie from xampp/htdocs to a remote machine... no luck sofar.
Some mind twirls:
- Staring and stopping thingies manually or as a service is not a problem;
- Looking into Apache monitor and see what can be learned;
- Explore the FMScheck program;
- What I understand from FMS proxy is that FMS needs port 80, and that it will pass through all things FMS doesn't handdle to any (or specified) server.
So the mission is:
- Persuede FMS to use/serve files from xampp/htdocs;
- Settle the fight over port 80;
- And when able to stream to a remote machine, setup the interactive mode of FMS so multiplayer applications can be hosted.
Any tips to help out with this quest are welcome ofcourse.
