Ubuntu installation

No docker. The following assumes you have a VPS somewhere with root access.

1. Requirements

As root:

apt install -y liquidsoap icecast2 nginx python3-certbot-nginx python3-virtualenv libogg-dev ffmpeg sqlite3
ufw allow 80
ufw allow 443

When the installation asks for icecast2 configuration, skip it.

2. Create system user

As root:

adduser radio

2. Clone this project

As radio:

su radio
cd ~/

git clone https://git.wownero.com/dsc/ircradio.git
cd ircradio/
virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python3 venv
source venv/bin/activate

pip install -r requirements.txt

3. Generate some configs

cp settings.py_example settings.py

Look at settings.py and configure it to your liking:

  • Change icecast2_hostname to your hostname, i.e: radio.example.com
  • Change irc_host, irc_port, irc_channels, and irc_admins_nicknames
  • Change the passwords under icecast2_
  • Change the liquidsoap_description to whatever

When you are done, execute this command:

python run generate

This will write icecast2/liquidsoap/nginx configuration files into data/.

4. Applying configuration

As root, copy the following files:

cp data/icecast.xml /etc/icecast2/
cp data/liquidsoap.service /etc/systemd/system/
cp data/radio_nginx.conf /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/

5. Starting some stuff

As root 'enable' icecast2/liquidsoap/nginx, this is to make sure these applications start when the server reboots.

sudo systemctl enable liquidsoap
sudo systemctl enable nginx
sudo systemctl enable icecast2

And start them:

sudo systemctl start icecast2
sudo systemctl start liquidsoap

Reload & start nginx:

systemctl reload nginx
sudo systemctl start nginx

6. Run the webif and IRC bot:

As radio, issue the following command:

python3 run webdev

Run it in screen or tux to keep it up, or write a systemd unit file for it.

7. Generate HTTPs certificate

certbot --nginx

Pick "Yes" for redirects.
