    How to make Shoutcast server: ON/UP

    Hello,

    I've just installed and started shoutcast, everything seem working fine but the server status is still down,

    then I tried logon to the shoutcast admin to look for an option to make the server up, there's not a single option do that...

    now I'm wondering how to make the server UP? I've already started the server, just need to make the server ON.

    Anyone know?

    Thanks,.

    the problem is this:

    I've installed shoutcast server on linux successfully,

    then it is said in readme that you put mp3 on content dir then it'll automatically broadcast, but it doesnt,

    but then I heard that I need DSP, so I downloaded:

    Download the SHOUTcast DSP Plug-In for Mac OS X, Linux and FreeBSD

    But then I still don't understand... how to install it and... what do I have to do to start broadcasting by simply putting mp3s on content dir?

    thanks

    If you are not relaying from another location, and want to play locally the mp3s on the server you need , then what you have downloaded is correct. I will assume you have created a user just for running shoutcast (and isn't doing it from root) and you are currently running as that user. I will also assume you have already configured your shoutcast server (with passwords and so on)

    Follow the steps:

    1. Download: http://www.shoutcast.com/downloads/s..._posix_040.tgz

    2. Untar
    tar -zvxf sc_trans_posix_040.tgz

    3. Configure
    cd sc_trans_posix_040
    pico sc_trans.conf

    Make sure that the config file points to the config file you are going to generate in step 4. You need to configure these:
    - PlayListfile
    - ServerIP: This is the IP of your Shoutcast server which is probably the same server.
    - ServerPort: Port 8000 is default
    - Password: This is the password that you enter in the Shoutcast server configuration
    - Bitrate: Depending on your radio, you can tweak the bitrate here
    - The rest are fine default.

    4. Create a playlist based on mp3s on the server:
    find /path/to/mp3/directory -type f -name "*.mp3" > playlist.lst

    5. Start your Shoutcast server
    nohup ./sc_serv &

    nohup and & is not compulsory but is nice to have. Nohup outputs to a log file and & runs the process in the background and returns you to shell.


    6. Start your broadcast
    nohup ./sc_trans_linux &


    It should now be playing. Access your server by going to http://serverip:8000/listen.pls or if there's a URL, the URL.
