Hi Icecast,

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 ATTACHMENT 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.



LUIS BASICALLY JUST RELAY THIS TO THEM...I MADE CERTAIN TO CHANGE THE
PASSWORDS IN THE ATTACHMENT TO BOOM
AND CHANGED UP OUR IP ADDRESS TO A BOGUS ONE...JUST FOR SECURITY...WE CAN'T
TRUST NO ONE REALLY...SO LETS SEE
IF MAYBE THEY CAN PIN POINT ANY ERRORS THE VALIDATING PROCESS DOES NOT
CATCH...SUCH AS MAYBE INCORRECT VALUES...
ETC...

Thank you,

Luis Barrett

P.S. Sorry for the same question we just want to see if we can get a quick
respond because we are working on a deadline
but you guys have been awesome helping us with this issue thank you.
