Hi guys ,

I'm using with satisfaction icecast2 for streaming vorbis and theora 
using oggfwd.

Now i want to try the authentication of icecast and I'm following this 
guide:
http://www.icecast.org/docs/icecast-2.3.1/icecast2_listenerauth.html

I'm using the HTPASSWD Listener Authentication  , and I add this line to 
my icecast config files:

<mount>
        <mount-name>/testmount.ogg</mount-name>
        <authentication type="htpasswd">
                <option name="filename" value="myauth"/>
                <option name="allow_duplicate_users" value="0"/>
        </authentication>
    </mount>



All works ok , the stream with testmount.ogg has the lock , but when I 
go to the admin web page for manage the user , when I try to add user I 
have an error , to see the error.log , that I post:

What's my error ??

I think that is on my xml config files , in particular here:


<mount>
        <mount-name>/example.ogg</mount-name>
        <authentication type="htpasswd">
                <option name="filename" value="myauth"/>   <-- this myauth
                <option name="allow_duplicate_users" value="0"/>
        </authentication>
    </mount>

What's the meaning and the functions of myauth?


Big thanks for your help

Goodbye

Pierpaolo
