Help with creating an Icecast backup and introfile
  • Using Icecast

    Locate the path of your webroot

    sudo pico /etc/icecast2/icecast.xml

     
    go to the line that give the path and see what is the  webroot

     
    usually it is  /usr/share/icecast2/web
    and not /etc/icecast/web

    Copy two  audio files in this directory

    intro .(mp3  or ogg)
    backupfile.(mp3 or ogg)

    One file you can use as your intro is your jingles

    so 

    sudo cp myjingles /usr/share/icecast2/web/intro.mp3

    do the same for your  backupfile

    sudo cp myjingles /usr/share/icecast2/web/backupfile.mp3
