    if it is a webserver the chances are you wont be able to install shoutcast on it,

    do you have ssh /root access to the server as that is what you need for getting it installed?

          Installing shoutcast server (linux)

          Setting up shoutcast on the server is pretty easy.
          im guessing that this is a linux server

          ssh into the server:

          1. (download shoutcast files to server)

          2. (untar files)
          tar -zxvf shoutcast-1-9-5-linux-glibc6.tar.gz

          3. (rename folder)
          mv shoutcast-1-9-5-linux-glibc6 shoutcast

          4.(remove downloaded file)
          rm shoutcast-1-9-5-linux-glibc6.tar.gz

          5. now you could either ftp into ur server and config sc_serv.conf or use shell editor (pico or nano) depending on the whats install on the box

          pico sc_serv.conf
          nano sc_serv.conf

          6. (edit config)
          Edit sc_serv.conf file as needed

          remore the ; infront of adminpassword and set a password

          7. (save config)
          ctrl-x to save and exit the editor

          8.(start the server)
          ./sc_serv sc_serv.conf

          Hope this helps. good luck

                  I looked all through my whm panle and dont see wwhere my ssl telent is

                    you can ssh from cpanel, but first u have to make sure ssh is enabled on the account in whm, so login to ur whm click for Manage Shell Access, click enable shell access on the currect account. then. then login to cpanel using that account, and click ssh/shell access then follow the instructions above.

                      Putty is also a nice ssh client you can use instead of cpanel.
