After upgrading Red5 v.1.0.1 to Red5 v.1.0.5 on CentOS 6.6, starting the service displays OK status but stopping failed. In fact, starting was not successful, thus stopping fails. The main reason it that the latest version requires Java 8 to make it run. After upgrading Java, restarting Red5 works well.
