How to setup the RadioDJ request system.

Recommended Posts

Now Radio DJ has the ability to take requests. I thought I would do a short tutorial on how to setup RadioDJ Online Requests.

Note: this is PHP based not HTML.


To get the request system working you need to do the following.


1) Make sure you enabled "Allow root access from remote machine" when you setup your SQL server otherwise the server won't talk to the webscript.


2) Make sure you have the latest version of RadioDJ http://radiodj.ro/download


3) Place the Plugin_Requests.dll file in the plugin folder within RadioDJ. This file can be found in the disabled plugins folder.


4) Download the RadioDJ Demo web script. http://www.radiodj.ro/download/scripts/RadioDJDemoScriptV2.2.zip


5) Upload the demo script files to your webserver.




6) Then edit the serv_inc.php file to point to your external IP address. Along with the other SQL settings Fill in the SQL server details as described below.


MySQL server = Your external IP - If you do not know your external IP you can find that here http://www.whatismyip.com


MySQL Database = "radiodj" if you've called yours something else put that name here.


MySQL password = The password you chose when setting MySQL up


Change the track and artist repeat rules to match those in RadioDJ.


Timezone = If you don't know your time zone setting you can find a list of those here http://php.net/manual/en/timezones.php


It will be something like Europe/London


7) Make sure your webhost allows connections on the port you want to use (Usually the same port as SQL 3306).


You can run a port scan check here http://www.t1shopper.com/tools/port-scan/


8) Open the SQL port usually 3306 on your broadband router. Make sure that it points to the internal IP of the computer running RadioDj and the SQL server


If you have done all the above you should now be able to take RadioDJ Online Requests from your website.


If you should get stuck head over to the RadioDJ forums where users should hopefully come to your rescue. http://www.radiodj.ro/community/index.php
