Early Access Updates

Hiya,

I was given an early access update to the control panel software that we use which requires me to run an update. This shouldn’t affect streaming services as it should just be adding features to the software. But to be on the safe side, I will do this at 4AM SLT (7AM EST) tomorrow Thursday August 4th, 2022.

Per the developers the following features will be added:

  1. Shoutcast v2.6 update to DNAS 2.6.1 (Build 777)
  2. Shoutcast v2.6 will now use the same standart port of the radio with SSL. So if there is a scv26 radio on port 8002, https and http will work on the same port 8002
  3. Custom SSL Play ID
  4. Fix for icecast statistics problems.
  5. Auto SSL Renewal Fix
  6. SMTP Username allowed for SMTP settings
  7. Youtube and Facebook features. << client side SonicPanel Left Menu << can be disabled/enabled by the radio packages on your root panel, it is hidden on the left menu unless you enable the social stream with your root packages.
  8. Mount Points << client side SonicPanel Left Menu << can be disabled/enabled by the radio packages on your root panel
  9. Domains/SSL Certificates (Multiple Domain) << Root and Resellers
  10. Shared Playlists (Root User on the left menu)
  11. HTML Codes (Widgets) < copy paste html codes for websites << client side SonicPanel Left Menu
  12. JSON Output (PHP-API) A php API to be used from external websites etc. << client side SonicPanel Left Menu
  13. Now your resellers can add their own domains, you can also add domains from your root panel, on the left menu by the link Domains/SSL Certificates link. Then you can assign the domain to any radio on the Domains/SSL Certificates page or with your radio packages you can use any domain. You can also assign the same domain to multiple radios and the domain will show up on the clients SonicPanel.
  14. NOTICE: This update requires your users to click on save button for once under the manage autodj page of their SonicPanel on the left menu. Otherwise, the scheduled playlists will not work until this action is complete by the user. So you should send an email to your all clients and inform them.

Unexpected Maintenance

Hiya,

I sincerely apologize in advance. If you are on server IP 107.191.38.242 with the login of hostcrate.rocks please bear with me while I re-do the login page. It will be reconstructed to be cp3.hostcrate.rocks … this shouldn’t affect streaming itself but you won’t be able to login until I have finished this process.

Thank you in advance!

DON’T PANIC! — A little bit of re-arranging :)

DON’T PANIC!
Mon, May 23 2022 8:20:43 PM PDT

I will be working on re-arranging the rental boxes. Don’t panic, you can use the Payment Terminal at the office to renew at anytime while I’m in the process of doing this. Just wanted to give you a heads up because it may take me a bit of time while I am still doing other important things at the same time like creating sold licenses and putting up rentals for rent.

thank you in advance! Love ya faces <3

Migration Successfully Completed (Dec2021-Feb2022)

Hey everyone!

I am SUPER happy to announce that the migration has been FINISHED! Whew! FINALLY! I will now be adding time to rental boxes of ** ONLY ** those affected. Your rental box will officially receive 56 days onto your box in a few moments from when this post goes live. I used the useful timeanddate.com in case anyone needs a such a tool! Phase 2 started on December 31st, 2021 until today when I officially finished the migration.

If you were in overdue status before the migration & are in overdue status once I have added said time, you will have 7 days to pay your rental box or you will risk losing your stream for non-payment. ALL temp streams that were given out will be deleted officially TOMORROW as soon as I wake up. Payments are officially no longer on hold. I will be doing terminations of ALL streams that took advantage of my being incredibly BUSY with this migration and were NOT affected by this migration tomorrow.

That is the end of this update…I think…Ya girl is TIRED so if there was anything that I missed, I will post further updates.

Thank you to everyone who was so kind, patient, and understanding of this situation. I appreciate you more than I will ever be able to express *virtual hugs*
