Another consideration if your knowledge of Linux isn't the best.  Centova provides a decent Icecast/Shoutcast product.  Almost everything is web based and there are decent guides to operate. For a reasonable price, they'll install for you as well.  I'd consider researching them to see if it aligns with your requirements/budget.  They were a great solution for me till my linux knowledge improved.  They also have a free trial so there is no obligation on your part.

It took me a LONG time to find the easiest steps to install Icecast.  If you have basic Linux experience, this install should be a breeze for you.  I choose to use yum installer because I want to be able to update it via yum and not have to manually build/install each package when one comes out.  I use a VPS that provides a modified minimal CentOS 7 64bit install.  Your install may not have the nano package or other commands and you'll have to either install or use vi.  Also, I don't know what firewall software you are using so I only placed instructions for what software I have.  Good luck and if you have any questions, we will assist as we can...

yum install deltarpm net-toolsyum install curl-devel libtheora-devel libvorbis-devel libxslt-devel speex-develyum updatecd /etc/yum.repos.d/wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:xiph/CentOS_7/multimedia:xiph.repoyum install icecast
cp /etc/icecast.xml /etc/icecast.xml.orignano /etc/icecast.xml
Using this website alter/add the following fields to match your needs to the icecast.xml file: http://icecast.org/docs/icecast-2.4.1/config-file.html<location>USA</location><admin>adminemail at yourdomain.com</admin><sources></sources><source-password></source-password><relay-password></relay-password><admin-password></admin-password><hostname>yourstreamdomain</hostname>
CTRL X, Y, Enter to save this config file
touch /etc/mime.types/usr/bin/icecast -c /etc/icecast.xml -bservice icecast start
Use the following command to validate icecast is running on port 8000netstat -tulpn | grep :8000
Enable port on your firewall.  This may be different based on what port is configured for icecast and firewall software you are usingfirewall-cmd --permanent --add-port=8000/tcpfirewall-cmd --reload

If you have any additional problems, you can:tail -f /var/log/icecast/error.log
With the above running, on a separate CLIservice icecast stop/usr/bin/icecast -c /etc/icecast.xml -b
Then look at the error.log on the other CLI to see the errors.
