Thread: Setting up a IRCd server

  1. #1

    Post Setting up a IRCd server

    Since of the recent AUP change, this might help some people that wish to have a IRC server:
    This tutorial will help you install Unreal IRCd 3.2.7

    First, you'll need the server.
    Code:
    wget http://ircd.ninth-gate.net/Unreal3.2.7.tar.gz
    gunzip Unreal3.2.7.tar.gz
    tar xfv Unreal3.2.7.tar
    Now, you'll need to make / make install and whatever.
    Code:
    ./Config  # This will take you to the first configuration.
    make install
    Now, for the final step, configuration.
    Code:
    vi  doc/example.conf
    Just change vi to nano or what ever you use.
    Save the file to unrealircd.conf in your main directory, not under doc.
    Now
    , run your server!
    Code:
    /path/to/Unrealdir/unreal start
    Hope this helps those of you who wish to run a IRC server

    If anyone needs a example configuration, I'll be happy to post one.

    Note: This does not include IRC services.

    Yes, you may - from our VPS Hosting FAQ:

    Can I host an IRC server?

    Yes! We have recently updated our policies to allow IRC server hosting.

    Debian VPS (Link-4) - Default template

    Code:
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:           500          9        490          0          0          0
    -/+ buffers/cache:          9        490
    Swap:            0          0          0

    Debian VPS (Link-4) - After installation of ircd-irc2 package (IRCNet IRC server daemon)

    Code:
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:           500         24        475          0          0          0
    -/+ buffers/cache:         24        475
    Swap:            0          0          0
    The IRC daemon which I installed appears to have a very manageable memory footprint.

    If you select OpenVZ virtualization, you will likely need a Link-2 plan (or better) to comfortably run your server - the NUMTCPSOCK limit for a Link-1 is 128 connections (see Link-1 Resources and resource explanation on our wiki) and you will likely want to be able to handle variable traffic instead of dropping connections if you see an influx of visitors.

    Additionally, the Link-2 plan on OpenVZ will allow you to use package management tools (apt, yum, etc) for your distribution of choice.

    If you select Xen you will not have the TCP connection limit, however, you will be limited to available memory (and swap) - it may be possible to run an IRC daemon with 50-100 connections on a Link-1 with Xen, however, use of swap space will severely degrade performance when things get busy, so a Link-2 would be the best place to start on either virtualization platform.
