Hello Steeve,

5 important things for having icecast with SSL :
Install icecast with open ssl : https://wiki.xiph.org/Icecast_Server/Installing_latest_version_(official_Xiph_repositories)
Concatenate fullchain.pen and privacy.pem => bundle.pem 
Add in icecast.xml : <ssl>1</ssl> and <ssl-certificate>/etc/icecast2/bundle.pem</ssl-certificate>
Check local firewall (netstat -pantu | grep icecast)
Restart icecast

ALL you MUST do is here explain here : https://mediarealm.com.au/articles/icecast-https-ssl-setup-lets-encrypt/

> I have absolutely no idea what any of this means, good or bad, but I do know that after restarting Icecast, I couldn't restart ices and therefore couldn't connect to the server. Apparently something is wrong with my PEM certificate file, but I truly don't know what it could be. I created it by concatenating my server's public key plus its certifying authority (CA) key provided by the hosting company plus the server's private key according to many articles and Web pages, not to mention several helpful messages on this very list. After restarting Icecast, I could not restart ices, which probably means I need something else in the ices configuration about which I do not know, or my certificate PEM file is bad. Any help on solving this would be greatly appreaciated. I feel I'm very close, jut one detail away from getting it right.
