System Requirements

Before beginning, verify that your server meets the System Requirements for Centova Cast.

Quick Installation

This section assumes you are using a fresh CentOS/RHEL/Debian server with no other control panels installed, and that you do not wish to customize your installation parameters. If a web hosting control panel (CPanel, Plesk, etc.) is installed on your server, see the Custom Installation section instead.

To quickly get up and running with Centova Cast, follow these three easy steps:

  • First, download the Centova Cast installation script and make it executable:

    wget -O install.sh install.centova.com/LICENSEKEY
    chmod a+x ./install.sh

    Replace LICENSEKEY above with your actual Centova Cast v3 license key from your client area.

  • Run the installation script to install Centova Cast, ShoutCast DNAS v2, and Liquidsoap:

    ./install.sh --shoutcast-all

    Prefer IceCast? Use this to install IceCast + Liquidsoap instead:

    ./install.sh --icecast-all

    Centova Cast will automatically download and install itself and everything you need to get up and running at this point.

  • When the installer completes, it will ask you to visit an URL in your web browser to punch in your administrator password and MySQL connection information.

At this point Centova Cast should inform you that the installation was successful, and will direct you to the Centova Cast login page where you can begin using Centova Cast.
