RTMP/E

 startVHost(vhost:String) : Object

HTTP

 http://www.example.com:1111/admin/startVHost?auser=username&apswd=password&vhost=name

Starts a stopped virtual host or enables a new virtual host.

This method lets you enable a new virtual host at run time without restarting the server. The new virtual host directory and configuration files must already be present in the server’s conf directory; the startVHost() method does not create or copy any directories or configuration files. For information on adding virtual hosts, see Adobe Media Server Configuration and Administration Guide.

You must be a server administrator to use the startVHost() method.

Availability

Flash Communication Server 1.0.

Parameters

vhost

A String indicating the name of the virtual host you want to start or the new virtual host you want to enable, in the form [adaptor/]vhost.

If you are enabling a new virtual host on the adaptor to which you’re connected, omit adaptor/.

auser

A String indicating the user name of the administrator.

apswd

A String indicating the password of the administrator.

Returns

RTMP/E

If the call succeeds, the server sends a reply information object with a level property of status and a code property of NetConnection.Call.Success.

If the call fails, the server sends a reply information object with a level property of error and a code property of NetConnection.Admin.Command.Failed or a more specific value, if available. Some objects might also have a description property that contains a string describing the cause of the failure.

HTTP

If the call succeeds, it returns XML with the following structure:

 <result>   <level></level>   <code></code>   <timestamp></timestamp>  </result>

If the call fails, it returns XML with the following structure:

 <result>   <level></level>   <code></code>   <description></description>   <timestamp></timestamp>  </result>

The XML elements contain the same information as the Object properties returned in an RTMP/E call.

Note: The timestamp response over HTTP is formatted differently on Windows (9/23/2007 6:16:40 PM) and Linux (Sun 23 Sep 2007 06:16:40 PM IST).

Example

The following example starts a virtual host named diamond.world.com on the currently connected adaptor and then starts a virtual host named diamond.world.com on the gem adaptor.

 nc_admin = new NetConnection(); 
 nc_admin.connect("rtmp://localhost:1111/admin", "JLee", "x52z49ab"); 
  
 /* Starts a virtual host named diamond.world.com */ 
 nc_admin.call("startVHost", new onStartVHost(), "diamond.world.com"); 
  
 /* Starts a virtual host named diamond.world.com on the adaptor, gem */ 
 nc_admin.call("startVHost", new onStartVHost(), "gem/diamond.world.com");
