I have installed a streaming media server on my linux machine, and I need to make sure it's always running. I'd really like it to automatically start on reboot. I currently start it with the following command line input:
#  /usu/local/WowzaMediaServerPro/bin
# ./

I'm a real novice from the command line so please be easy on me.

    According to the docu of wozwa it comes with an init.d script

    So to enable automatic starting just type
    /sbin/chkconfig WowzaMediaServerPro on

    and to start/stop it:

    /sbin/service WowzaMediaServerPro start

    /sbin/service WowzaMediaServerPro stop
