Hello - I seek a service provider for an easy, quick project. I basically need someone to get my FMS hosting set up. Here are the specific instructions that the support team from my fms host sent me. (My web host is hostgator (where my site is - my FMS host is Influxis). I think I already did step 1 but if I did it wrong it will need to be changed,
1) Create your application directory folder by logging into your Influxis account and using the File Manager within our Influxis FMS Wizard web interface. This will give you an RTMP connection path, similar to the following example, to apply to your client side application file(s):
rtmp://[url removed, login to view] (which would be replaced by the application directory name you create such as chat)
2) Upload all your media content (FLV video files, etc.) to the application directory folder. Once this is done, apply your connection path to your client side application and publish a new SWF file.
I'll give you the necessary login information for the accounts once a provider is chosen. I need this done immediately.
3) Upload the SWF file to your web server for web access. Your SWF application should then be able to remotely connect to our server via RTMP protocol whenever it is accessed by a viewer.
If you are utilizing a chat application as you described, usually the only files that would go on the Flash Media Server would be any .asc, .as, or .ase files that came with the application. Everything else would go into a common folder on your web server.
