How To Get Your Own

This was my first project with Last.fm data to come to an actual result. It's now running for a considerable length of time and seems to work fine. I've implemented just about all the features I want. But now a problem apears. Audioscrobbler allows only one request per second. This system was never designed with multi-user support in mind. Although it was fairly easy to implement, the nature of the system isn't very suitable for a multi-user system. Since it requires the constant monitoring of the recently played lists the number of requests to Last.fm go up increasingly as I add more users. I've streamlined things a bit, but some time it's going to be full. And don't know when that is and it's not going to break all of a sudden, but it'll start missing tracks when it's busy. And I'll probably be able to support up to a couple of hundred of users, but I'm not sure if I'm even willing to go that far!

Install Your Own

It's open source! Since a lot of people came to me asking to be added, I decided to make it open source. Now everyone can install and run the system. This is the prefered way. You can download the source here: Last.fm Real Time Stats 2.0.2
I've putten a lot of effort into the Read Me. Most should be explained there. If you have any remaining questions, problems, tips or ideas you can contact me. My E-mail is in the footer of this page.

Requirements

You don't really need a lot on your server to run this. Only PHP and MySQL are really required and these are supported by most hosting providers. Resort to the included readme.txt for more information.
