AzuraCast is a free and open-source, self-hosted, all-in-one web radio management suite.

Using AzuraCast and its powerful, intuitive web interface, you can start up a fully working web radio station in a few quick minutes. AzuraCast works for web radio stations of all types and sizes, and is built to run on even the most affordable cloud virtual machines.

This Marketplace application configures the latest stable channel build of AzuraCast, which includes Liquidsoap as an AutoDJ and Icecast as a broadcasting frontend, using the recommended Docker installation method.

Getting Started After Installation

AzuraCast is ready to go out of the box. Once your new server is created and ready, visit your server's public IP address (or, if you've already configured it, its domain name) to finish setup by creating an administrator account and setting up your first station.

Setting up LetsEncrypt

AzuraCast has built-in support for LetsEncrypt, which provides free SSL certificates to ensure both your web portal and radio station broadcasts are secure and supported in modern browsers.

Follow the Enabling HTTPS with LetsEncrypt guide to get started with LetsEncrypt.


This Marketplace image includes our Docker Utility Script, installed in the recommended directory, /var/azuracast. This script handles the majority of common installation management tasks, including updates, backup and restoration, and setting up LetsEncrypt. You can see the full set of commands available via the utility script in our documentation.

AzuraCast has two release channels:

  • Stable releases, which are less frequent but more stable builds that have been tested by numerous users before being deployed, and
  • Rolling releases, which include all code changes made to AzuraCast on an ongoing basis and is often updated multiple times a day.

By default, your 1-Click installation is on the stable release channel.

To update your installation to the latest stable release version, log in to your server as any user who is in the docker group (including root) and run:

cd /var/azuracast ./ update-self ./ update
