Darwin Streaming Server – Couldn’t find the en language messages file!

Seen a few people hitting my blog with the error: Couldn’t find the en language messages file! at /usr/local/sbin/streamingadminserver.pl line 2167.

Thought I would spend some time looking in to it to see what the issue is, at first I just could not replicate the problem at all untill I had a brain fart and realised it was a premissions issue.

you have to run streamingadminserver.pl as root or you get the error as above so in simple terms here is the fix.

su streamingadminserver.pl

(I have specificaly left the path to streamingadminserver.pl out due to slight differences in ditro’s)

To find your streamingadminserver.pl run:

find / -name streamingadminserver.pl

hope that helps someone.
