Upgrading Centova Cast

Performing an Upgrade

The Centova Cast upgrade process is fully automated. Whenever an update becomes available, an upgrade can be initiated using the following command:

/usr/local/centovacast/sbin/update

This works both on web interface and control servers, and will update all of the Centova Cast software packages that are installed including all supported streaming server/source software such as ShoutCast, IceCast, sc_trans, ices, and so-on.

Automatic Updates

Centova Cast will not automatically update itself, ever. From an administrative perspective, automatic updates are bad form as the systems administrator should always be in control of how and when software upgrades are performed.

If you have a specific need for automatic updates, however, you can set up a root cron job to run the update command (above) as often as needed.
