DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the icecast command. It was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

The options are as follows:

-b
Force icecast server into the background
-c configuration_file
Use specified configuration file instead of default one (/etc/icecast/icecast.conf)
-d directory
Specifies the directory in which icecast will search for its config files. Default path is /etc/icecast
-l file
icecast will use the given file to store server logs. Default is /var/log/icecast/icecast.log
-p password
Specifies the password used to authenticate stream encoders
-P port
Specifies the port on which the server listens for client connections (default 8000)
