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.

If you are like me, you had forgotten to change the default port from "8000" to something else.

I needed to change that, because apache2 is already running on that port.
