SHOUTcast Server Version 1.9.2/Linux:how to point to content folder

I have searched the forums and I can't see where I am going wrong, but I must be somewhere.
I'm running SHOUTcast Server Version 1.9.2/Linux
How do I set the content file?
On my server I have a shoutcast folder containing the sc_serv.conf etc I have made a folder 'content' in that folder and placed my intro.mp3 file in it. my sc_serv.conf file reads

; ContentDir specifies the directory location on disk of where to stream
; on-demand content from. Subdirectories are supported as of DNAS 1.8.2.
; Default is ./content, meaning a directory named content in the same directory
; as where sc_serv was invoked from.
ContentDir=./content

; IntroFile can specify a mp3 file that will be streamed to listeners right
; when they connect before they hear the live stream.
; Note that the intro file MUST be the same samplerate/channels as the
; live stream in order for this to work properly. Although bitrate CAN
; vary, you can use '%d' to specify the bitrate in the filename
; (i.e. C:\intro%d.mp3 would be C:\intro64.mp3 if you are casting at 64kbps).
; The default is no IntroFile
IntroFile=./content/intro32.mp3

The mp3 compression app I have is a bit lame so I had to go with 32kbs|22.050khz|Mono thus 'intro32.mp3'
So I set my 'Encoder settings' to 32kbs|22.050khz|Mono

So now I restart DNAS? (i interpreted this to mean restart the plug-in by diconnecting and connecting)

but still nothing, where am I going wrong?

Thanks

You must "Kill Server" to restart, not sure if that's what your problem is, but I'd try that first.

music, there is none greater.

I was just coming to that conclusion. This should be fun seeing as it's a virtual server. I think I can do it. Thanx for help
