Starting icecast 2.1.0 server according to official Icecast 2.1.0 documentation doesn't work
http://icecast.org/docs/icecast-2.1.0/icecast2_basicsetup.html says: "Once the configuration file is modified, you should be able to start the server with the following command icecast -c /path/to/icecast.xml"
kestrel root # icecast -c /etc/icecast2/icecast.xml ERROR: You should not run icecast2 as root Use the changeowner directive in the config file
Though I have configured Icecast according to this guide. Excerpt from my config file /etc/icecast2/icecast.xml showing the discussed variables (I left the remainder to default): censored spearburn 8000 127.0.0.1 /var/log /usr/share/icecast/web /usr/share/icecast/admin
