Creating A New SQL User

In case you haven’t already noticed MySQL tends to allow some pretty insecure permissions by default, allowing root access from any computer.

This is a big problem, especially if you have port forwarding configured on your router to your MySQL instance.

However you can easily create new users using any management interface, so we’ll do it with HeidiSQL

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.

Sam Broadcaster Bad SQL!

SAM Broadcaster Bad SQL!

We keep seeing posts on the Spacial Audio Facebook pages and forums from people saying that their queue list table within MySQL has crashed and is corrupted.

This is usually the MySQL error that people get.

“MySQLi prepare error: Table ‘samdb_mysql.queuelist’ doesn’t exist”

This is nothing new and has been a major issue within SAM Broadcaster SQL tables ever since SAM Broadcaster v2.7.9

Changing The Default MySQL Port

Changing the Default SQL port:

When it comes to a MySQL server running along side RadioDJ some users have found that their web hosts won’t allow connections to the default SQL port 3306.
