MariaDB 3 Years And Counting

Just been looking back on various posts on my Facebook page from around this time 3 years ago.

Threatened By Free Software?

We wish we knew what people's problem is with free software...

We’ve had grief again for promoting RadioDJ, and dispelling a few myths about it too.

It’s almost as if certain sections of the Internet radio crowd see RadioDJ as a threat?!

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”

So Why does RadioDJ rely on a MYSQL database?

RadioDJ requires MySQL to run some backend functions such as Rotations/Playlists/Events and even listener requests.

Configuring The Windows Firewall

Configuring your firewall

If you’re just running RadioDJ with no webpage linked to the RadioDJ database, then you probably don’t want to add any exceptions to your firewall.

If you’re using a request system and need this extra functionality, you’ll first of all need to make sure your web host has the right ports open. Without this, there’s no point proceeding any further on this article. Check the database utility > Database installation tab. You’ll see the IP address of your server in the MySQL Server box. If there’s a colon followed by more numbers at the end, this is your port number. If there’s no colon, you’re probably using the default port 3306.

You’ll also need to configure port forwarding on your router as well, google the manufacturer’s instruction manual for this bit.

Now for the easy part, configuring the firewall.
