Shasha,


Thank you!  Tested and it worked!!!  Here is my code should anyone desire...  It is in three parts.

Could have parameterized the code...  find yourdomain.tld and replace with your domain.tld.  Be aware of any line that has yourdomain.tld to replace what matches for your needs.



#Copy and paste or run manually outside of script

#Install certbot, epel must be installed

#Run Command for Certbot to create certificate

try this:
/usr/bin/icecast -c /etc/icecast.xml -b > /dev/null 2>&1 &
as for killing them, don't overcomplicate things, killall icecast -KILL
also, perhaps you don't even need to kill and start them again, try to HUP them and see if the certificate updates.

Yes, the web players I've tested have a hard time parsing meta properly using only one instance with separate streams.  Tested at least 6 of them looking for reliable meta and cross browser/OS compatibility.

Any specific reason to run 4 Icecasts?

 I have 4 instances of icecast running on my server.

 I am trying to integrate an automated Let's Encrypt Certificate
 renewal.  My testing found that I need to restart the icecast
 processes for the certificate to update.  I created a bash script that
 would open the firewall port, renew the cert, combine the
 certificates, overwrite the old cert, close the firewall port, kill
 the icecast services and then start them.


 Everything works except for the restarting of the services.  Killing
 them works fine but starting them hangs.  Please help me create the
 steps to start the 4 icecast instances via bash.  I have tried no &
 and && as well.  Feeling really stupid right now.  Thank you in
 advance for your time and please spell out the answer without assuming
 my knowledge or lacktherof!  😉


 #Kill all processes with the name icecast
 ps -ef | grep icecast | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}' | xargs -r
 kill -9
 #Start my icecast instances

 /usr/bin/icecast -c /etc/icecast.xml -b &
 /usr/bin/icecast -c /etc/icecast1.xml -b &
 /usr/bin/icecast -c /etc/icecast2.xml -b &
 /usr/bin/icecast -c /etc/icecast3.xml -b &


 PS: If I can get this working I can post it to github for everyone who
 would like to secure their icecast traffic and renew it automatically.
