Most of our SHOUTcast servers run on quad core servers with CenTOS 6 as the operating system (OS). CenTOS 6 has reached it's end of life (EOF) and it no longer supported. So any security updates / package updates are no longer available.
Since this poses a huge security risk, we must upgrade our OS to CenTOS 7. This entalis:
- save the old Centovacast / settings
- scratch the server
- install CenTOS 7
- restore Centovacast
It will take 1- 4 hours per server to do this.
Here is the schedule:
SC15 - COMPLETED
SC7 - COMPLETED
SC1 - TBD
SC6 - TBD
SC8 - COMPLETED
SC9 - COMPLETED
SC13 - TBD
SC30 (players) - TBD
SC69 (SSL server) - TBD
We apoligize for this but our security and uptime are our main concern.
If you have any questions, please put in a support ticket.
