hey RO3L
I have the same issue: server startup failed. exiting. ...without logs
how did you solve it?

R03L 07-20-2009 04:39 AM

open console and type killall icecast or sudo killall icecast
it should shut down and than try again

soluction error icecast2
 
in my case had a program running on the same server port icecast2 finalized the program and the server started normally.

Same Problem
 
Hi, I get same problem in Ubuntu 12.04. Without log file too (empty file in /var/log/icecast2)

When I try to start (#sudo /ete/init.d/icecast2 start), I always get this notification :
# Starting icecast2: Starting icecast2
# Detaching from console
# icecast2.
# Server startup failed. Existing

I use standard icecast installation, I also tried "killall icecast2" / "kill icecast", changed into another port, but still get the problem.

What should I do to fix this issue?

ps : sorry because I can't speak English well.
