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.
“The biggest fail with RadioDJ to me is the reliance upon a MySQL database”
Having an MySQL database makes programming on your website (PHP) really straight forward, You can show what’s currently playing or recently played or even take 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 as most of the settings are stored in the database.

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…
“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.

It was June 2014 when I last decided to rebuild my RadioDJ MySQL database from scratch.
Plus that piece of software didn’t have an SQL backup tool so when the database went wrong you lost all your data which sucked!
Some of the credit for the stability with RadioDJ also needs to go to MariaDB we’ve found it’s a lot easier to setup than Oracle MySQL.

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.
