Why Does RadioDJ Rely On A MySQL Database?

Saw this post on a forum on a post about RadioDJ free radio automation software.

“The biggest fail with RadioDJ to me is the reliance upon a MySQL database”

The fact RadioDJ relies on a database for some of it’s functions is actually one of it’s PLUS points.

Installing RadioDJ On A New Machine

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 recently…

“Does RadioDJ work with 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.

RadioDJ Stable Database

It was June 2014 when I last decided to rebuild my RadioDJ MySQL database from scratch.

Its been upgraded through at least 3 different versions of RadioDJ and its database updates now and is still going strong.

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

RadioDJ Keeps Breaking?

Just seen a post on the RadioDJ forums from a long time user of the program complaining that the program keeps breaking on him.

“My install(s) of RadioDJ have been breaking. I have had to reinstall and redo all of the install(s) over the past 2 weeks. My track rotations seem to burp and ignore the music and just play VT’s or Sweepers. I am not sure what the heck is going on but it is becoming a pain in the rump. I am wondering if it is my SQL?”

He then goes to on to state that he’s never ran RadioDJ as “Administrator”

“Never have had to start it as an admin ever. That is something Marius has never stated here to do.”

We think you will find that Marius says to most users that they need to run RadioDJ with full “Administrator” privileges. Its not a RadioDJ problem its a Windows security rule.

What Database Issues? (MariaDB)

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

We’ve had MariaDB installed on all of our machines since June 2014. Including any website servers its rare we have to do any maintenance.

Since we started using MariadB we’ve only had 1 maybe 2 issues with a database table becoming corrupted after a sudden/improper shutdown of the computer.

RadioDJ Free Radio DJ Automation Software

What is RadioDJ?

RadioDJ is a free radio studio automation program for use by any DJ or radio station.

RadioDJ V2

You can even run multiple Shoutcast/Icecast radio stations if you want using third party virtual audio cables (VACS).

It can also be used as a home entertainment system for music. (Which is what we currently use it for)

Is RadioDJ really free?

Yes! It’s 100% Free with no nasty hidden fees or catches despite what certain software/hosting companies try claim in their blog posts. No keys, activation or patches needed to work the full program.

Eventually there will be a paid for version of RadioDJ but the free version will still be available for those who require it

Will RadioDJ work on Windows 10?

Yes RadioDJ should work on Windows 10 with very few issues. Unlike other radio automation programs that have “compatibility” issues.

MariaDB & RadioDJ

We came across MariaDB after a user posted on the RadioDJ forums that they were using it with RadioDJ.

I have to admit I was surprised by how easy MariaDB was to install. It’s a lot more straight forward than the normal MySQL installer. Its not as fiddly as setting up MySQL server edition.

If you have previously had MySQL installed you will need to see this article about removing it as a service

1) Download the Maria DB MSI installer for your version of Windows Here

2) Open the file & Install and run when Windows prompts.

3) On the licence agreement screen check the accept box. Click next.
