Hi, I've just installed Icecast and can't start it...
Ok, I have Red Hat linux 9.0
I've downloaded icecast-2.2.0.tar.gz file... I've installed it using:
make install
Next I've edited - /usr/local/etc/icecast.xml
then I type the command: icecast - c /usr/local/etc/icecast.xml
and I recieve  this message:
"ERROR: You should not run icecast2 as root
Use changeowner directive in the config file"
Well, then i create a user and a password for it... I use: su - username
to switch from root to that username but when I type the same command: icecast - c /usr/local/etc/icecast.xml
I recieve another message:
FATAL: could not open error logging (/usr/local/var/log/icecast/error.log): Permision denied
FATAL: could not open access logging (/usr/local/var/log/icecast/access.log): Permision denied
FATAL: could not start logging
Please, what do I do wrong here?!
