SHOUTcast Installation

Postby chandranjoy » Wed Mar 17, 2010 8:35 pm

SHOUTcast Installation Steps:

Create a folder in the outside public_html, like sc or shoutcast, then
download the Shoutcast server files from
Then follow the steps,
mkdir sc
cd sc
wget ... nux.tar.gz
tar -xvzf sc_serv_1.9.8_Linux.tar.gz
chmod 755 sc_serv
cd ..
chown -R user:user sc

This will put three files on the server:

From here, the configure the Shoutcast server and setup via the
sc_serv.conf. However, take note of what port that Shoutcast server will
be running on so it can be enabled in the server firewall. This is set in
the sc_serv.conf file as well:


Once the configuration is complete the SC server needs to be started. As
long as you have SSH access you can start it yourself. To start the
server, type:

./sc_serv &

To stop the server, just do a killall -9 sc_serv. Note the ‘&’ after the
command, which is one of the few techniques used to keep a process running
even after your SSH session closes.

That's all..!
