[Icecast] Send admin kill request to server

Hi Philipp,

I have tested it. But I still get the message back “Authentication Required".
As I mentioned before, send this request from the same server, where Icecast is running.
But the audio is provided from another server.
Could be that a problem?

This doesn't look like a valid API endpoint and parameters.

endpoints under /admin that end with ".xsl" are for users only, not for machine made requests. Remove the ".xsl" to do an API call.

Also there is no "user" or "pass" parameter.

Likely the browser sends the required credentials via HTTP auth as required. It may do so without telling you when it has them cached.

I just confirmed here with current devel build, the following works fine for me:

wget -SO /dev/null --user=admin --password=hackme --post-data='mount=/example1.ogg&id=44' http://localhost:8000/admin/killclient
