How to setup a simple IRC Server on your VPS
#1
Hello guys, today I'll teach how to setup a very, very simple IRC Server on your VPS with IRCD Hybrid.

1. Connect to your VPS by using SSH (Putty, OpenSSH, etc).

2. Install IRCD Hybrid by typing:

Terminal

apt-get install ircd-hybrid


Your IRC Server is now fully working, and you can connect from any IRC Client.
You may also want to edit the MOTD, for it you may run


Terminal

nano /etc/ircd-hybrid/ircd.motd


Edit to the MOTD that you want and then restart the server by typing:

Terminal

sudo /etc/init.d/ircd-hybrid restart


Do you have any problems? Let me know here!

Huh, lmao. This is very easy, thank you for this tutorial. Although, have you actually tried it? You might have just copy pasted this, it seems like you don't have any VPS to try it yourself.
Ehm, I'll test it anyways.

I hope you really tried it your own, and would appreciate if you could include "How to configure the server" in your tutorial. Smile

I didn't do any other configuration, since I have setup my IRC Server for an VB.NET project that I'm developing, I'm using it for the programs communicate whith each other, not users talk to others, but I'll look forward for the configurations and then update the thread.

agreed. the installation is the simple way of an IRC server setting up. the more important thing is the way we set the configuration. port forwarding, domain pointing (including IPv6 set up), staff level access, etc. perhaps he can update his post sooner (or it is just a copy from another post Wink  )

No. you would have to setup IRCD services manually. UnrealIRCD is an IRCD server also. So if you want to use ircd-hybrid, you would have to uninstall UnrealIRCD.
