Icecast Installation

Postby chandranjoy » Thu Apr 01, 2010 4:54 pm

Icecast installation

*) download the icecart from ""
*) Extract the file and for install
*) ./configure
*) make && make install

After install we have to do the following changes in the configuration file.

*)Update the user and password in Authentication section

Code: Select all
        <!-- Sources log in with username 'source' -->
        <!-- Relays log in username 'relay' -->

        <!-- Admin logs in with the username given below -->

*) Mention the server host address and the port

*) We get the error, icecast cannot be run as root. To overcome this we
have to create the icecast user(any name) and the same should be updated
in the configuration file.


*) start the icecast
icecast -b -c /usr/local/etc/icecast.xml(config file location)

*) we can login into the icecast admin through the url :


That's it. Hope this will help you for future reference.
