Well… I successfully installed & Configured Icecast2 a couple of weeks ago and have been running some tests and all is well. Running 100 concurrent users has little if any impact on memory and a tiny increase on CPU but well within my resource contraints. I’m still having something consuming a lot of memory after aboput 4 or 5 days of the server being up but this as before I migrated to a VPS and a reboot fixes it for a week or so. My webwebpages are a mix of static and a little wordpress but traffic is very very low.
Anwyay back to the question… I’d like to add it to start with the server but I tried editing rc.local and inet.d but both fail. What’s the best way of adding the start command for icecast2 to my VPS? It does need an admin password but I assume that won’t be needed when the server starts.
