Centova Cast is an Internet radio stream hosting control panel. It provides the tools you need to automate and manage your Internet radio hosting service. 

Centova offers powerful features for both stream hosting providers and individual broadcasters. The latest CentovaCast v3.2.14 comes with a Free SSL option and HTTPS Players.


  • CentOS 5, 6, or 7 (or equivalent RHEL release)
  • Centova Licence Key
  • Active hostname


This article covers the complete centova software installation (shoutcast2, Liquidsoap, shoutcast1, Icecast, Icescc, sctrans2) with SSL. Installation of SSL required a hostname pointed to the server IP. The installation process will auto-install free SSL and enable it to the server. To get a qualified hostname, you need to contact your domain provider( if you purchased domains from ucartz.com, submit a ticket ) and create an A name entry against hostname "yourdomain.com" with the server IP. Thus, you have configured your hostname "yourdomain.com".

Available Streaming servers:

  • SHOUTcast DNAS v2.x
  • SHOUTcast DNAS v1.9.8
  • IceCast v2.x

I assume you already have a CentOS installed server. Let's now begin the installation:


Step 1: Log in to your server via SSH.


Step 2: Next, copy and paste the following script one by one and make it executable:

wget -O install.sh install.centova.com/LICENSEKEY (Replace LICENSE-KEY with your actual Centova Cast v3.2.14 license key received either directly or from Ucartz)

chmod a+x ./install.sh

./install.sh --shoutcast2 --liquidsoap --shoutcast1 --icecast --icescc --sctrans2 --secure=yourhostname.com --email=info@yourhostname.com
