Recently a couple of users of RadioDJ free radio automation software asked how they should go about transferring the RadioDJ settings to a new computer.

Are there files that I can copy and paste onto the new machine so it will have the same rotation, cue marks, events, and other settings? Please advise.

 
Moving RadioDJ to a new machine with the same settings is really easy.

RadioDJ & MSSQL?

This search term appeared on my stats over the past few days.

“RadioDJ & MSSQL”

 
I guess by now the person who made that search will realise that RadioDJ only works with MySQL

Unlike SAM Broadcaster which has 4 different database options. The database in RadioDJ has been kept simple.

You’re Just Making Stuff Up? (Sam Broadcaster)

We’ve been accused of “Making up” the problems about SAM Broadcaster…

Nope! we’re not making anything up, things really are as bad as they seem with SAM Broadcaster

The problems documented on this website and its posts are just a few of the reasons as to why we think the software isn’t worth the $299 Spacial Audio charge for their software.

RadioDJ Stable Database

It’s June 2014 since I last decided to rebuild my RadioDJ SQL database from scratch.

In all the years I’ve been doing Internet Radio this is the longest I’ve gone without having to rebuild a SQL database.

Some of the credit for the stability also needs to go to MariaDB we’ve found it’s a lot more stable and easier to setup than Oracle MySQL.

Reinstalling Sam Broadcaster

Saw a tweet from a SAM Broadcaster user having to reinstall the program after it had gone wrong on him and wouldn’t restart after a reboot of the PC.

“In the process of reinstalling SAM Broadcaster it completely refuses to load even after system reboot”

 
We know how this user feels it’s happened to us on many occasions over the years. SAM Broadcaster goes wrong and crashes for no reason even in the newer versions.

What Database Issues?

I asked my partner to find out when we actually installed MariaDB on our PC that we run RadioDJ from.

Turns out we’ve had MariaDB installed since June 2014.

In the last 36 months that we’ve been using MariaDB we’ve only had 1 maybe 2 issues with a database table becoming corrupted after a sudden shutdown of the computer.
