Seen a post from a user of SAM Broadcaster who wants to move his current SAMDB MySQL database over to a new machine and appears to be having trouble doing so.
That’s the problem with SAM Broadcaster while there is a backup feature in the software AFAIK it only backs up program files/settings and NOT the database, You have to use external software or batch files if you want to even attempt to try and backup your MySQL database in SAM.
We first discovered & started using RadioDJ radio automation software way back in 2010 but it was January 1st 2011 before we started to use it full time.
We started looking for another automation solution because SAM Broadcaster was getting beyond annoying & just wouldn’t work as it was supposed to.

Installing RadioDJ v2.0.0 the easy way
We know it can be daunting and scary installing radio automation software for the first time.
Especially if you aren’t used to using software that requires a database, but don’t panic it’s not as difficult to setup as you might think.
If you follow these easy steps and have a bit of patience then you should have the program up and running in no time.
1) Starting off with a fresh clean install of your Windows operating system is usually a good bet.
(But not essential)
Don’t forget to backup files/databases/program settings IF you decide to reformat Windows.
Once you’ve reinstalled/cleaned Windows junk files and downloaded & installed all required security patches/updates/drivers for your PC then you can begin the process of installing and configuring RadioDJ.
