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?!
We also realise that certain people in the world of online radio don’t like this website/blog because of our posts about SAM Broadcaster and its many issues.

Saw this post on a forum on a post about RadioDJ free radio automation software.
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.
The fact RadioDJ relies on a database for some of it’s functions is actually one of it’s PLUS points.

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

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.

This search term appeared on my stats recently…
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.

What is it with certain sections of the Internet radio crowd?
We see people complaining almost weekly on social media that they having problems running/using SAM Broadcaster.
(Nothing new there!)
When we messaged or tweeted some of those people having issues with SAM Broadcaster to let them know about the better free alternative RadioDJ
Several of the people have come back with comments like this.

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.
