<p>The next step is to edit the icecast.xml file and set the appropriate values. Most of the
specified values in the samples are fine, for a basic setup the following entries should be
specified, and if neccessary, changed to suite your situation :

</p>
<pre>
&lt;source-password&gt; - will be used by the source client
&lt;admin-password&gt; - will be used to access admin features of icecast
&lt;hostname&gt; - DNS name or IP address used for stream directory listings.
&lt;source-password&gt; - will be used for the source client authentication
&lt;admin-password&gt; - will be used for authenticating admin features of icecast
&lt;listen-socket&gt; (both port and bind-address)
&lt;logdir&gt; - directory where log files will be placed
&lt;webroot&gt; - any static content can be placed here (file serving root)
&lt;webroot&gt; - directory for non admin content (file serving root), status page is provided
&lt;adminroot&gt; - directory containing admin xslt files
</pre>
<p>Most will not need to change adminroot/webroot as those are only read by icecast but icecast
needs to create files in the logdir which MAY mean you want to be more selective. The other
settings above will need to be provided by the icecast administrator </p>
<p>Once the configuration file is modified, you should be able to start the server with the following command</p>
<pre>
icecast -c /path/to/icecast.xml
