How To Login To Flash Media Server, Connect To Flash Media Administration Console

Recently I was tasked by a client with figuring out how to connect to their Flash Media Server for administration purposes. I personally have not ever used FMS so I didn’t even know where to begin. After trying to bring up the admin console in a browser on port 1111 and receiving an error as noted below I finally figured out that you must install a package from Adobe and make the connection through that software. I describe below the steps I took to make the connection to the clients Flash Media Server or more correctly the Flash Media Administration Console.

Litespeed Error Log:[ERROR] Swapping directory is not writable:/tmp/lshttpd/swap/

I booted up a server yesterday that I had not used in quite a long time and had some issues right from the beginning. I remembered the server working the last time it was live so I was assuming I could boot it up and test something on the ruby application that was installed on it. Anyhow when I attempted to connect to the web server, which is Litespeed, via a browser it would simply hang. Below is information regarding what I did to troubleshoot, what the error was, and how the error was corrected.
