I guess you mean chown and chroot?
Or just chown, but no chroot?

That looks like chown and chroot.

/if/ I read this correctly, then this would mean, that it tries to run
connect.sh in the root directory of your chroot, so /connect.sh and when
seen from outside /home/<user>/icecast/connect.sh
Are there any security features on this system, that might interfere?
If all else fails, try to run this instead:
strace icecast -c /home/<user>/icecast/<config>.xml
This might have some hints about what's going wrong.
Another approach might be to just try and see for yourself. Something
like this should work as root:
ls -la /connect.sh
Hope that helps, 73 es 55
