Media Server Control Panel

MSCP (Media Server Control Panel) is a management interface for Icecast2 with comprehensive functionality. An administrator can create users and then edit access rights, set the number of listener slots, enable or disable AutoDJ, etc. Users may change several parameters of the Icecast2 server and the AutoDJ via a Web-based interface. Audio compression formats supported by the AutoDJ are MP3, Ogg Vorbis, and FLAC. MSCP does not require an SQL server and runs on an independent Web server. It also sets Icecast2 to Shoutcast-compatible mode.

            If you have some problems to connect the FTP server and you running a firewall, you must edit the ftpd-mscp.conf file (/home/mscplitecenter (Debian)) and add a free port in line 4:

            Before: PASSIVE_PORTS="0"
            After: PASSIVE_PORTS="ADD_A_PORT_RANGE" (e.g.: PASSIVE_PORTS="2122-2199").

            Please add this port range in your firewall too.
            Please restart ftpd-mscp (service ftpd-mscp restart (Debian)) and your firewall.
            After this steps you can connect with this FTP server now.

            Question: Is it possible to build in the next release a UTF-8 support?
            I tried charset="UTF-8" but I receive strange characters on website and source code.

            Great work :-)

            Note: Broadcast password must be empty to connect from client to server!

            I was free and I translated the language files to German :-)
