UnrealIRCD Compilation Print

  • 2

Here is a quick down and dirty instruction manual on how to setup UnrealIRCD

First you will want to be in your home directory. If you just logged into your shell, you are already there. Otherwise, just type: cd ~

First, you need to get the Unreal IRCd package, by typing the following into your SSH connection:

wget http://www.unrealircd.com/downloads/Unreal3.2.8.1.tar.gz

Next, you need to unpack the source code.:

tar -xzf Unreal3.2.8.1.tar.gz

This will create a directory for you called Unreal3.2.8.1. We need to get into that directory to start the actual compiling and configuration.

Type cd Unreal3.2.8.1 (remember, you can use the tab key to auto complete what you type at a shell prompt)

Now, you need to run the Config script which will setup some preliminary values before compiling. Type:


Now you will be shown a splash screen. Press Enter as prompted to get to the next page. You will be shown the release notes. Hit q to quit that view, then enter to continue again. Finally, you're at the Config script!

You'll notice a prompt:

Do you want to enable the server anti-spoof protection?
[No] ->

The [No] means that if you just hit enter, the default answer s no. You will be selecting the default for almost all of the configuration questions. This means that for the most part, you will just be hitting enter.

Hit enter (take the default) for the first 6 questions unless you have a compelling reason not to.
