Install and configuring icecast audio streaming server

The easy ways to install icecast server is using Yum. Using Yum will install all dependencies files, so we don't have to download it manually. But in case if yum is not working then another option is with RPM files (RedHat family), but dependencies files have to be download manually.

[root@host ~]#yum -y install icecast


[root@host ~]#yum -y install libshout
