Do you have a basedir specified in the <paths> element and have 
<chroot>1</chroot> in the <security> element below?

If so, the paths you specify in <logdir> and <webroot> need to be 
*relative* to the basedir.

eg,

<paths>
   <basedir>/usr/local/icecast2</basedir>
   <logdir>/logs</logdir>
   <webroot>/web</webroot>
</paths>

...

<security>
   <chroot>1</chroot>
   <changeowner>
     <user>icecast</user>
     <group>icecast</group>
   </changeowner>
</security>

Try this and see if it helps?
