schedule running but music not playing & the ON AIR sign is off
  • Hi everyone,
    This is my first post here, I'm not developer and most of my knowledge of airtime is from a user perspective.
    I run an online radio station using airtime and the person who built it kind of abruptly abandoned the project. I know just how to do the very basic maintenance things such as restarting airtime systems via command - liquidsoap, media monitor etc - not much else.

    Currently all my airtime says everything's running properly, system check says everything's ok, all parts of airtime have green mark on status but the ON AIR is off and there's no music coming out of the stream. I've restarted liquisoap, playout and media-monitor to no effect.

    Any tips or requests for logs etc welcome!
    Really need some help here

  • May be Icecast is down...

    command line:
    service icecast start
    service icecast restart

    Have you tried to reboot your server?

    Etheractis - Digital Online Media
  • tried that command and it returned:

    icecast: unrecognized service
  • tried again using command
    service icecast2 restart 

    this time the result was:
    Restarting icecast2: Starting icecast2
    Detaching from the console

  • when I restart liquidsoap it returns this: 

    Restarting Liquidsoap Playout Engine: Done.
