Ampache Scores No. 1 in My Streaming Media Book on DerekHildreth.com/Blog

Thank You.

If you’ve been interested in streaming your music collection to anywhere in the world from home, you just simply have to take a look at Ampache. It’s a web-based audio file manager which implements mySQL and PHP to bring a feature rich environment to you and the people you want to share it with. After looking around at other solutions such as Zina, Jinzora, Andromeda, and Orb, I feel that Ampache has the most appealing characteristics. It was easy to setup, easy to learn, and most importantly everything “just worked”. If you do run across problems, their support forums are friendly and quick to help. I didn’t find that with Jinzora’s forums where there were inquiries from two years ago without a single response. Also, I really like the appearance of Ampache’s default theme. It’s clean, light, and doesn’t have 1990 web design look like Zina does. Plus, Ampache is free, unlike Andromeda, and cross-platform, unlike Orb which means that it’s available to anybody running Linux, Macintosh, FreeBSD, Windows, etc. If you haven’t looked at it, I would suggest you do so right away and set your music free.

This tutorial is intended to help guide new web masters (like myself) in getting their own totally free, self-hosted WordPress.org blog up and running. I’m using Fedora 8 to accomplish this, but your distribution of Linux is probably very similar. In fact, a great guide for Ubuntu is located here on their wiki. I try to write my tutorials so that anybody with any distribution can accomplish the task. It may not be identical, but the principles are usually the same. By the way, the setup instructions for Fedora 8 are located in the directory usr/share/doc/wordpress.2.3.2 after installing the wordpress package.

Let’s get started….

This is my attempt at guiding new webmasters (like myself) through the setup process of setting up a simple web server for friends and family (and possibly, with a little bit of creativity on your side, a full-blown web host like those you usually pay for). I will provide commands to execute in the Linux terminal, the programs needed, and some programs that I would highly suggest….

A gem of innovative and cutting-edge technology has been found emerging from the settling dust storm that was Ubuntu 7.10 called Fedora 8 “Werewolf”. It’s due to be released on November 8th and there is a plethora of very exciting things about it that may convince users (including myself) to make a switch. Here are only some of the highlights:

  • Enhanced Laptop Support
  • Enhanced Bluetooth
  • Enhanced Wireless Networking
  • Codec Buddy
  • Electronics Lab
  • IcedTea (OpenSource Java Alternative)
  • Pulse Audio
  • Tickless Kernel
  • Online Desktop

For more, visit http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/8/FeatureList or http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/8/ReleaseSummary.

Needless to say, I will be making a partition for this jewel to experience it for myself. If you would like to as well, keep your eye out on the download links that will appear on the front page of http://fedoraproject.org/ when November 8th rolls around the corner.
