AIRTIME installation. New, 2016 tutorial!
because of the... public demand ( :P ), here are the updated installation instructions!
Automatic installation of the popular online radio automation system Airtime, has stuck in Ubuntu 12.04. But, the installation to Ubuntu 14.04 or Debian 7 is straight forward and easy. Sourcefabric corrected some issues with language settings and others, that need tricks to install pervious versions of the software, but again, the installation script has some errors.
This is the easy way for installation of airtime, I installed it this way in an Ubuntu 14.04 server.
First of all, install git to be able to clone a repo
apt-get install git git clone https://github.com/sourcefabric/Airtime.git
If you get any error, download and install manually Airtime:
Download the newest version of Airtime from sourcefabric website (today, this version is 184.108.40.206)
Go to https://github.com/sourcefabric/Airtime/releases , and wget the latest.
There is an error in sourcefabric installation script about the database. You have to manually install PostgreSQL berore running the install script. If you first run the install, don’t worry, just install porstgre and rerun airtime installation
apt-get install postgresql postgresql-contrib
Now, you are ready to install Airtime:
sudo ~/airtime-220.127.116.11/install -fiap
or go to airtime folder and install
sudo ./install -fiap
Open your browser to your ip or domain, no special ports needed, and follow the instructions.
Follow all the details from airtime installation, it is pretty forward! You probably will se an error in the end, stating that some services are not running. Just rerun those services following those commands:
service airtime-media-monitor start service airtime-liquidsoap restart service airtime-playout restart
There is no statement about the default login and password for your server. Enter in both fields “admin” and when logged in, don’t forget to change the values :P
Happy playing with your new webradio!
