Moving to a new server, may result in site downtime
Posted on 3-3-2009
We wanted to let our listeners know that we will be moving our website to a new server over the next few days which means that the site may be inaccessible at times during this transition period. The reason for the move is that we need to upgrade to a better server because we have had a big increase in listeners and visitors over the last few months, and as a result, our current web host can no longer support the amount of traffic this site is getting on a daily basis.
So we praise the Lord that He continues to bring more and more people to our website and that we are able to upgrade at this time. We thank God for faithfully providing the funds to pay for this upgrade, and we're very grateful that he has laid it upon the hearts of our listeners to help make this possible with their financial gifts to this ministry.
Thank you for your patience during this time and we hope to be on the upgraded server as soon as possible. In the meantime, you will still be able to listen to our stations without interruption as they are hosted on a server that is seperate from our website's server. We encourage you to bookmark our stations in your favorite audio player so that you can tune in even if our website is temporarily unavailable.
May the Lord Jesus continue to guide you in all that you do,
-- The WOTR Staff

We're happy to inform our listeners that if you own either an iPhone or an iPod Touch, you can listen to Word of Truth Radio while you're on the go. This is possible thanks to a free application available in the iTunes Store. The app you need is the SHOUTcast Radio application, and the app is only less than 1 MB in size, so you won't even notice it taking up any space on your iPhone/iPod's hard drive.
The free SHOUTcast Radio app is also very easy to setup, and just as simple to navigate, but just in case you need any help, we've provided some instructions below so that you can quickly begin listening to WOTR on your iPhone/iPod.
Instructions for setting up WOTR on your iPhone/iPod:
1.) First of all, you'll need to download the SHOUTcast Radio application from the iTunes App Store (It's completely free). You can download the app directly to your iPhone/iPod through the App Store, or onto your computer first by opening up your iTunes Software, go to the iTunes Store and type in "shoutcast" in the search box.
Once you get to the SHOUTcast app's page in iTunes, simply click the "GET APP" button to download it to your iPhone/iPod or your computer.
2.) Optional: (Skip this step if you downloaded the App directly to your iPhone/iPod) Now you need to transfer the App from your computer to your your iPhone/iPod. If you're iTunes is set to sync automatically when you connect your device, then the App will be auto transferred to your iPod/iPhone the next time you plug in your device. If your iPhone/iPod is already connected or you want to sync the App manually, then simply click on it in iTunes under the Devices list on the left side, then click the Applications tab, make sure the box is checked next to "Sync Applications", then click the Sync button in the lower right hand corner.
3.) The SHOUTcast app is now on your iPhone/iPod, so you just need to start it up by tapping it, just as you would any other application.
4.) The app will open and you will be presented with a list of categories/genres. You can find all the WOTR stations listed under the "Inspirational" category. If for some reason you have trouble finding one of our stations, all you need to do is click the search button in the lower right corner and search for "Word of Truth" and all the stations will come up in the search results.
Note: In order to listen to our Acoustic Praise Cafe station, you will need to go to your iPhone/iPod Settings, then scroll down to the bottom and click on "SHOUTcast" and then turn on the setting to "Allow hi-bit streams", as it is turned off by default.
5.) Once you have your favorite WOTR station playing, you can click the Star icon in the upper right corner to add the station to your favorites list for easy access.
We hope you enjoy this wonderful free application, and if you have any problems/questions, please just let us know and we'll be happy to help
