Flussonic Media Server configuration management

Caution

Starting from version 20.10, Flussonic is delivered without a pre-created configuration file. Also, there is no longer the default password. The configuration file is created automatically after you start the web interface for the first time and enter the license key, your actual username and password. The newly created file contains the default settings (the path to the Pulse database and session log).

Flussonic Media Server configuration management

Flussonic Media Server configuration settings are stored in the file /etc/flussonic/flussonic.conf.

You can edit Flussonic Media Server configuration settings in several ways:

  • Edit the configuration file /etc/flussonic/flussonic.conf and apply the settings — see later on this page.

  • Specify the settings in the Flussonic's web interface (UI). The UI supports the majority of settings but sometimes a setting can be specified only in the file. The changes made via the UI apply automatically.

  • Use the HTTP API for managing Flussonic configuration.

Editing the file flussonic.conf

All Flussonic Media Server settings, including global options, streams and VOD files settings, and other settings, are stored in the configuration file /etc/flussonic/flussonic.conf.

This file receives all the changes that you make using the Flussonic UI, and these changes are applied to the server at once. You can also edit the file directly.

If you have made changes to configuration parameters directly in /etc/flussonic/flussonic.conf, you must reload the Flussonic Media Server service by running:

service flussonic reload

Another way to reload the service is to use the HTTP API:

curl -u user:pass http://localhost:80/flussonic/api/reload

where user:pass — the login and password specified in the option edit_auth (see Other server options) .
