Everything Below (Excluding Shoutcast Itself) Has Been Custom Built By aexiHOSTING, Although we offer support for this product we cannot be held responsible for the affect it will have on your system
What is Shoutcast?
SHOUTcast is Nullsoft's Free Winamp-based distributed streaming audio system. Thousands of broadcasters around the world are waiting for you to tune in and listen. Take a peek through the SHOUTcast directory (immediately listed below) to start browsing the most popular stations. Be sure to select your connection speed and then what kind of music you're looking for over on the right hand side for optimal listening pleasure. All you need is a player (we recommend Winamp) and you're set to go!
What is the Shoutcast Monitor?
The shoutcast monitor is a custom built script by the team @ aexiHOSTING that enables the most novice user to be able to start, stop and view the status of a shoutcast installation on their server.
How does this script work?
This script is only built to download and install shoutcast & Shoutcast Monitor into the /home/shoutcast directory.
If you already have shoutcast installed and want to use the shoutcast monitor only, download the file from http://www.aexihosting.com/shoutcast/shoutcast and move it into your /usr/sbin directory. Make sure you edit the file and enter the correct directory information. For help with that, please reply to this post
