How to install 3rd party modules (and a warning)

A word of caution
Third party modules are not maintained by the UnrealIRCd team. They are written by people on their own title, staff and non-staff. If you experience crashes or issues, get in touch with the person who wrote the module. Do not contact the UnrealIRCd team about this. Only contact the UnrealIRCd team if the module is doing evil things or if the module author is not responding/fixing major issues.

On *NIX
To list all available modules, go to https://modules.unrealircd.org/ or run this on the shell:

Code: Select all

./unrealircd module list
To install a specific module, you run this on the shell:

Code: Select all

./unrealircd module install third/name-of-module
More commands and information can be found on the module manager page.

On Windows
On Windows we don't provide an easy way to install modules from the command line. You will need to get a .DLL file of the module, compiled for your specific UnrealIRCd version and drop it in C:\Program Files\UnrealIRCd 5\modules\third. Ask your module coder for this file. It will depend on the UnrealIRCd version so needs to be updated on every upgrade.
