Centova Cast shows "Source status: Remote" after deactivating autoDJ

If Centova Cast shows your source status as "Remote" and won't let you deactivate the autoDJ or skip songs, this is the result of kicking the autoDJ. In some cases, the the kicked source will remain running in the background, and the next time a legitimate source disconnects, it the kicked source will reconnect to the server. Because the kicked source is no longer under Centova Cast's control, Centova Cast will not be able to stop or disconnect it.

This can be prevented by stopping the autoDJ properly rather than kicking it. Once a kicked autoDJ has "gone remote", however, you will need to either reboot your server (which will solve the problem automatically) or login to your server via SSH and perform the following steps to terminate it:

First, run:
ps aux | grep ices | grep USERNAME

Replace USERNAME with the username of the affected stream. That should give you some output that looks like:

centovacast 1354 11.4 0.3 4536 2020 ? Ss Aug07 4841:33 /usr/local/ices/bin/ices -v -c /home/centovacast/vhosts/USERNAME/etc/source.conf

Now, take the number in the second column (in the above example it was 1354, but in your case it will be different) and run:

kill -9 1354

Replace 1354 with the number from the second column. If you received more than one line of numbers above, repeat the "kill" command for each of them.
