1) Upload gyaro web/upload folder on your server from ftp or sftp to where anydirectory is the place which you will be using to visit gyaro from web.

Create Mysql database/Mysql Username/Mysql Password and add them to database from control panel.

2) Install Red5 media server 0.8 on your vps or dedicated server by using below procedure. Note: other red5 media server will not work with gyaro web and you need to install java-1.6.0-openjdk only because other versions will not work with red5 media server 0.8.

Login to your VPS or dedicated server with your root user details from SSH client like putty and type commands which are given below (you can copy these command and right click mouse inside SSH client to paste automatically.

yum -y install java-1.6.0-openjdk java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel

then after installing java-1.6.0-openjdk type below commands 

cd /usr/local 

mkdir red5 

cd /usr/local/red5 


mv red5-0.8.0.tar.gz?dl=0 red5-0.8.0.tar.gz 

tar -zxvf red5-0.8.0.tar.gz 

red5 installation is done successfully.

Now open gyaro web\red5 application red5 0.8.0\gyaro\WEB-INF\ in notepad or html editor and replace localhost/writemysqldatabasenamehere/writemysqlusernamehere/writemysqlusernamepasswordhere/ with your details in below format inside the file.

Example of file : 

mysql://localhost:3306/writemysqldatabasenamehere?user=writemysqlusernamehere&password=writemysqlusernamepasswordhere&useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=utf-8&autoReconnect=true&failOverReadOnly=false&maxReconnects=10 webapp.phpServerAddress=

After editing it might look like this

mysql:// webapp.phpServerAddress=

Now save the file and close it

Then upload gyaro web\red5 application red5 0.8.0\gyaro folder from sftp (winscp or filezilla) on your server with root details to folder /usr/local/red5/webapps/

Now open web browser and visit and it will open web installer, install it by the following steps, note in installation on second page you must add in red5 server address as rtmp://ipaddress/gyaro where /gyaro is the application folder name which you uploaded on server in /usr/local/red5/webapps folder

Once the web installation is completed, now go back to SSH terminal on your server and type the below command to start red5 media server

cd /usr/local/red5 

sh & 

red5 media server will be started and it will show logs of gyaro, wait for 1 to 2 minutes and if it shows bootstrap message then it means you didnt install red5 media server correctly or started red5 media server too fast, on every restart of red5 media server you must wait for 2 to 3 minutes for properly running red5 media server.

Now just visit your website and if your website is showing login screen of gyaro then simply go back to SSH client terminal window and on keyboard press CNTRL + D and it will close the SSH client. Red5 media server will run in background and if your gyaro installation from web doesnt show login screen and shows connecting message then it means red5 media server is stopped simply login to SSH client and type the command ./ & and CNTRL + D

For easily starting red5 media server without going to directory you can install red5 service using vim editor.

These are the steps you must do to install red5 as service on your VPS or dedicated server.

cd /etc/init.d/

touch red5

chmod 755 red5

vim red5 or vi red5

Then copy and paste below script by pressing i button of your keyboard

Note : if you install red5 in /usr/local/red5-1.0.0 or /opt/red5 directory then you must change path to RED5_DIR=/home in the below script 

# Auto Red5 Media Server Run Script
test -x $RED5_DIR/ || exit 5

case “$1” in
echo -n “Starting Red5 Service”
echo -n ” ”
cd $RED5_DIR
su -s /bin/bash -c “$RED5_DIR/ &” red5
sleep 2
echo -n “Shutting down red5″
echo -n ” ”
cd $RED5_DIR
su -s /bin/bash -c “$RED5_DIR/ &” red5
sleep 2
## Stop the service and regardless of whether it was
## running or not, start it again.
$0 stop
$0 start

then press ESC and type the below command


it will close the vim editor

then you need to type the commands in SSH client

useradd red5 

and you can be able to start red5 as service on your server by below commands

service red5 start 

service red5 stop 

service red5 restart 

Installation Complete!

Still Installation Not Working ?

Check if your mysql server is connected remotely to mysql database on your server if didnt connected then its because of incorrect address in red5 0.8.0\gyaro\WEB-INF\ (mysql://localhost:3306/…..) where you need to replace localhost with ipaddress or domain name with which your are able to connect to mysql database remotely from your SSH client on your server.

open putty ssh client:

Type :

mysql -h host -D database_name -u username -p 


host with mysql ip address
database_name with your database name
username with mysql username

Next it will ask you password then enter password and if it gets connected to mysql server then it will show


If mysql:> is showing that means mysql is connecting from hostname you logged in which you added in red5 application otherwise error 2003 or any other error will be shown.

Once you come to know with which hostname you are able to login to your mysql server you can simply update it in red5 0.8.0\gyaro\WEB-INF\ and restart red5 media server for changes to take effect.
