How to Install AzuraCast Radio Management Suite on Fedora

AzuraCast is an open-source and self-hosted web radio management suite that helps you to get a web radio station up and running in minutes. It offers a powerful and intuitive web interface where you can manage every aspect of your radio station. You can upload media, manage playlists, create local mount points and remote relays, and view analytics and reports via a web browser. It also offers an API to build your own players and interfaces.

In this post, we will show you how to install AzuraCast radio management solutions on Fedora Linux.

In This Article

Step 1 – Add Docker Repo

By default, the Docker package is not included in the Fedora default repo, so you will need to add the repo for Docker.

You can add the Docker repo using the following command.

dnf -y install dnf-plugins-core
dnf config-manager --add-repo https://download.docker.com/linux/fedora/docker-ce.repo

The above command will create a docker-ce.repo file in the Yum configuration directory.

Step 2 – Install Docker and Docker Compose

Once the Docker repo is added to the Yum repository, you can install both Docker and Docker compose packages with the following command.

dnf install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io docker-compose-plugin docker-compose -y

After installing both packages, start and enable the Docker service.

systemctl start docker
systemctl enable docker

You can now verify the Docker version using the following command.

docker --version

Output:

Docker version 20.10.17, build 100c701

Step 3 – Install AzureCast

First, create a directory to store all configuration files.

mkdir -p /var/azuracast

Next, download the AzureCast installation script using the following command.

cd /var/azuracast
curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/AzuraCast/AzuraCast/main/docker.sh > docker.sh

Next, set the executable permissions on the downloaded script.

chmod a+x docker.sh

Next, start the AzureCast installation with the following command.

./docker.sh install
