    My current server uses CentOS 5.8, and latest cPanel.

    I am trying to install Darwin Streaming Server, but it the first effort seems to have succeeded, except I cannot get the admin panel to work. Yes, I set the proper ports in the firewall, CSF, but no dice.

    These are the instructions I used (but second patch is 404):

    Code:
    useradd qtss
    cd /usr/local/src
    wget http://dss.macosforge.org/downloads/DarwinStreamingSrvr6.0.3-Source.tar
    tar xvf DarwinStreamingSrvr6.0.3-Source.tar
    wget http://www.abrahamsson.com/dss-6.0.3.patch
    patch -p0 < dss-6.0.3.patch
    wget http://dss.macosforge.org/trac/raw-attachment/ticket/6/dss-hh-20080728-1.patch
    patch -p0 < dss-hh-20080728-1.patch
    cd DarwinStreamingSrvr6.0.3-Source
    ./buildtarball
    cd DarwinStreamingSrvr-Linux
    ./Install

    Hello :)

    You will likely receive better support from the developer of the application you are attempting to install. You may want to check to see if they have a support website for troubleshooting these types of issues.

    Thank you.

    I presume you know that Darwin Streaming Server came unsupported from Apple Inc., and is no longer being updated, although widely used. So I do need installation advice from another user who has made it work.

    Yes, it's acceptable to make this forum post. However, I'm not sure there are many cPanel users that utilize this software so I wanted to steer you in the right direction in-case you do not get a response here. I did notice a few threads on the CentOS forums regarding this software:

    CentOS 5 - Software Support

    Thank you.

    There are also other threads on these forums about this topic, not much help there though.

    Google link to search results:
    Let me google that for you

    Slim pickings. I went to Google first before posting here, and found some instructions for installation, but not much dealing with CentOS/Red Hat, and often I found someone asking a question and never getting a response.

    But I will remain optimistic that someone here can deliver that possibility.

    I am not averse to other streaming methods. Really, we need to put up a link to a streaming Webcam. Open source preferred.

    Peace,
    Gene
