THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION...WE TRIED A FEW THINGS AND BASICALLY THINGS
RESULTED IN THE SAME ERROR...


Server startup failed. Exiting

WE SCRUBBED THE ICECAST.XML FILE AND VALIDATED IT AND NO ERROR WERE
FOUND...WE THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO LOOK OVER THE XML CONFIG FILE
INCLUDED IN THE EMAIL AND SEE IF MAYBE OUR ISSUES FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO
START THE ICECAST SERVER SUCCESSFULLY ARE HIDDEN TO US WITHIN THE CONFIG
FILE...AGAIN THANK YOU FOR YOUR VALUABLE TIME AND KNOWLEDGE.

THIS IS OUR icecast.xml config file...
