Instructions to setup your server

  1. Download the source or package (we recommend the source — the tar.gz version) from the InspIRCd Github: https://github.com/inspircd/inspircd/releases
  2. Extract the the tar.gz with: tar -xvf v3.XX.X.tar.gz , replacing the X’s with the appropriate version numbers of source.
    1. Dependencies: build-essential , curl , libwww-perl
  3. cd to inspircd-3.XX.X and run ./configure — The default paths chosen by the configure script should be fine.  You should allow it to enable all third party or extras modules.  Finally, follow the instructions at the end of the configure script and build InspIRCd3.
  4. Once completed, you will need to use InspIRCd3’s modulemanager to install the following contrib modules.
    1. ./modulemanager install m_shed_users
      ./modulemanager install m_opmoderated
      ./modulemanager install m_joinpartsno
      ./modulemanager install m_stats_unlinked
      ./modulemanager install m_require_auth
      ./modulemanager install m_svsoper
      ./modulemanager install m_tag_iphost
      ./modulemanager install m_changecap

      1. Now you will need to run make, followed by make install.
      2. Setup your inspircd.conf (usually in inspircd-3.13.0/run/conf) using the template provided here.
      3. Your server is now ready for configuration before being run.  Configuration files are provided if your application is passed into Testlink.  You may run a temporary configuration of your own, if you wish to have the server running before it is reviewed.  (However, understand that the IRC4Fun configuration files will only be provided should the application be voted into Testlink.)
