First thing…

I thank God for graciously, through His mercy, giving me all the necessary knowledge acquired throughout my life and throughout the development of this project. It is only through His grace and provision that this was possible, and I am truly grateful for His presence every step of the way.

Crucial Advisory: Strictly Avoid Using Control Panels for Installation

Important: For the installation of the Streamer, Encoder, and Livestream components, it is imperative to use a Linux distribution, specifically Ubuntu, without any type of control panel. This includes avoiding panels like cPanel, Plesk, Webmin, VestaCP, and similar.

Control panels significantly interfere with the necessary system access and processes required for a successful installation. They restrict the installation of essential libraries and the compilation of critical software, such as Nginx for the Livestream component.

Please be advised: Installing our system on a server with any control panel is highly discouraged and is likely to result in installation failure. We cannot provide support or guarantee success in such scenarios. For a smooth and functional installation, it is essential to follow this guideline strictly.
