MediaCP Manual
    System Requirements

    Last updated 6 dias atrás

    The MediaCP is software that must be installed on your own dedicated or virtual server which can be purchased from a provider such as VultrOVH or Amazon.

    Operating System

    MediaCP recommends Debian 11 for all new installations.

    The full list of supported operating systems:

    • Debian 10, Debian 11 (Recommend  Option)
    • Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04
    • CentOS 7 (Core) / CentOS 8 Stream *
    • AlmaLinux (experimental) *
    Flussonic Server is best with Debian 10/11. Flussonic does not provide support for CentOS/AlmaLinux systems.

    Virtualization

    Most virtualization technologies should be supported provided they do not alter the operating system or kernel. OpenVZ containers are not supported because they are not the real versions of CentOS or Debian and provide custom kernels that cause problems.

    Domain Name

    A domain or sub-domain name is required if you wish to use HTTPS/SSL services.

    Licensing

    A Static IP address and connection through to https://www.mediacp.net:443 is required.

    Memory Usage

    Minimum of 2 GB Memory is required.

    Disk Space

    MediaCP is installed in /usr/local/mediacp and we recommend 20GB disk minimum at this location.

    There must be 4 GB free in /usr/local/ to install MediaCP.

    Network / Firewall

    It is required that your server have the following ports available to operate the MediaCP:

    • Main web GUI – 2020
    • AutoSSL – 80
    • FTP server access – 2121, 50000 – 51000

    Additional ports are required to run various media services:

    • Audio Services (Shoutcast 1/2 & Icecast) – 8000-9000, 10000-11000 (Icecast SSL/NON-SSL support)
    • AutoDJ Live Streaming Port – 6800-7000
    • Wowza Streaming Engine – TCP 554, 1935, 1936, 8084, 8086, 8088 & UDP 554
    • Flussonic Media Server – TCP 554, 1935, 3308, 8080, 8081
    • Nginx Free Video Server – TCP 19350, 19360

    Recommended Hardware

    The below recommendations are guidelines only and different usages of Audio and Video streaming use different amounts of resources.

    Audio Streaming

    Audio streaming itself is very lightweight and will not use many resources. AutoDJ functions perform transcoding of audio files and will use a greater amount of CPU power.

    Minimum

    Recommended Requirements
    10 services
    5 AutoDJ
    • Disk: 20 GB
    • CPU: 1 CPU
    • RAM: 2 GB
    • Network: 100 Mbps

    Small

    Recommended Requirements
    50 services
    15 AutoDJ
    • Disk: 40 GB
    • CPU: 4 Core or better
    • RAM: 4 GB
    • Network: 100 Mbps

    Medium

    Recommended for Medium Load
    100 services
    20 AutoDJ
    • Disk: 500 GB
    • CPU: 4 Core or better
    • RAM: 8 GB
    • Network: 100 Mbps

    High Load

    Recommended for High Load
    100+ services

    • Disk: 1,000 GB
    • CPU: 8 Core or better
    • RAM: 8 - 16 GB
    • Network: 1000 Mbps

    Video Streaming

    Live Streaming will use the least amount of resources. Ondemand streaming will require greater disk performance and SSD’s are recommended. TV Station services will consume CPU power.

    Transcoding will consume a great amount of CPU power and we recommend you refer to our Transcoder on VPS Benchmark and Wowza’s Transcoder Benchmark
