3. Create Stream Manager Instance

Create SM Instance and assign a Floating IP


We will be configuring the Stream Manager instance later, but to start, we need the floating IP address to assign to a domain name.

  1. From the left-hand navigation of the Digital Ocean dashboard, under the Manage section, choose Droplets
  2. Click on Create
  3. Choose Droplets from pull-down
  4. Choose an image: Ubuntu 16.04.6 (LTS) x64
  5. Choose a plan: CPU-Optimized; 4GB/2 CPUs (minimum suggested for running Red5 Pro) newdroplet01
  6. Choose a datacenter region
  7. Additional options are optional
  8. Authentication: choose SSH keys (select the key(s) you want to include newdroplet02
  9. Finalize and create: Choose a hostname; Select a Project; click on Create Droplet newdroplet03

Assign Floating IP

  1. From the left-hand navigation of the Digital Ocean dashboard, under the Manage section, choose Networking, Floating IPs
  2. Under Assign a floating IP, click on the link "To reserve a floating IP for a specific datacenter, click here."
  3. Choose the Datacenter location where you created your Stream Manager instance, then click on Assign. floating01
  4. Select the Floating IP from the list; click on More v and choose Reassign floating02
  5. Find your stream manager droplet and select it.

Note: the new static Floating IP will be assigned in addition to the ipv4 address that was assigned to the droplet on creation.

Now, you can create a DNS entry associating the Stream Manager floating IP with your intended Stream Manager domain name (for example, streaming.mydomain.com).
