UnderNet Ircu Setup on Mint 21.1 Linux server

Post by ZioN »

Bellow you can find all the steps needed to be done in order to build the UnderNet IRCU using a linux server.
Please keep in mind that the IP Address of the machine used for this HOWTO is and it should be changed with the IP address of the machine where you want to have IRCU installed.
OK, now let`s proceed....

1. We need to make sure that the server is update - to - date:
  • apt update
  • apt upgrade
  • apt install build-essential
  • apt install wget git libssl-dev openssl bison libreadline-dev zlib1g-dev automake make flex mlocate byacc

2. Now we are ready to get and install ircu.
  • adduser ircd
  • su - ircd
  • git clone https://github.com/UndernetIRC/ircu2
  • cd ircu2/
  • ./configure --prefix=/home/ircd/ircd --with-maxcon=1024
  • gmake
  • gmake install
  • cd
  • cd ircd/lib
  • cp example.conf ircd.conf
## edit ircd.conf with your network settings.
## To test ircd.conf file for errors type:
  • /home/ircd/ircd/bin/ircd -k 9
## if message is: "Configuration file ircd.conf checked okay." you can proceed with starting ircd server, using:
  • /home/ircd/ircd/bin/ircd
This is all ! Now you have an IRCU Server Running !
