Re: Next step to setup irc

The installation procedure is outlined in https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/Installing_from_source

You finished the section called "Compiling" and now you need to follow "Creating a configuration file".
https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/Install ... ation_file

You need to actually go through the configuration file, as the article says. You need to read the file completely, not rush, not only a mass text replace without reading or while ignoring chunks.
This is important because, once you have UnrealIRCd configured, you will need to know how to tweak things and you can only do that if you have a basic understanding of what the configuration is, in the first place.

normaly, unless you comment it yourself, you have cloak_sha256 loaded.
Check your conf to find loadmodule "cloak_sha256"; and uncomment it if it's commented.

And look for the cloak-keys block to see if you have well setted 3 random strings in it, or runned ./unrealircd gencloak to generate them (you'll have to paste & copy the result in your configuration)

Well i have nothing installed in the: /home/myusernamecensored/unrealircd/conf/unrealircd.conf
i can't find any cloack or cloak_sha256 on there.

Now i know how to generated a "key" Thanks! :D

In my config i have this installed:

Code: Select all

/* FOR *NIX, uncomment the following 2lines: */
loadmodule "src/modules/commands.so";
loadmodule "src/modules/cloak.so";

/* FOR Windows, uncomment the following 2 lines: */
loadmodule "modules/commands.dll";
loadmodule "modules/cloak.dll";

set {
        cloak-keys {
                "key1 (sensored)";
                "key2 (sensored)";
                "key3 (sensored)";
        }
}
I know i must delete the // before the "loadmodule" but i get this error now:

Code: Select all

[info] Loading IRCd configuration..
[info] Testing IRCd configuration..
[error] /home/usernamecensored/unrealircd/conf/unrealircd.conf:2: loadmodule src/modules/commands.so: failed to load: Cannot open module file: No such file or directory

[error] /home/usernamecensored/unrealircd/conf/unrealircd.conf:7: loadmodule modules/cloak.dll: failed to load: Cannot open module file: No such file or directory
[error] IRCd configuration failed to load

This commands.so and .dll stuff... those lines in the configuration file you are showing... those only exists in UnrealIRCd 3.2.x.
Why are you using a UnrealIRCd 3.2 style configuration file when you are trying to setup UnrealIRCd 6? That is not going to work.
The only way you can get into such a situation is because you got that UnrealIRCd 3.2 config file from somewhere else and are not following instructions.

The instructions are at https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/Install ... ation_file - it will make you use a UnrealIRCd 6 configuration file that you need to edit, go through it line by line / block by block. This has been mentioned a few times already by people.

I'm sorry to say this but don't be surprised if, after some time, nobody is going to respond to this thread anymore. You are not reading the documentation or following instructions. That must be annoying and hard for you. But it is also annoying for everyone that is trying to help you (4 people at this point?). Just like you may give up at some point trying to do things, the people trying to help you may also give up on you.

Who say i'm not reading?

1 = it's my first time
2 = I never doing this before
3 = I reading, but sometimes i dont understand what i must doing. (its not to shame to ask any help)
4 = I write everything how it works for the next time, sow i never forget
5 = there re too mny documents and links, this make it not simple.

But ok ok...

I have now:

Code: Select all

[info] Loading IRCd configuration..
[info] Testing IRCd configuration..
[info] Configuration loaded
[info] Configuration test passed OK
[info] UnrealIRCd is now listening on the following addresses/ports:
[info] IPv4: 127.0.0.1:6669, *:6667, *:6697(TLS)
[info] IPv6: *:6667, *:6697(TLS)
[info] UnrealIRCd started.
Looks now everything is working. :D
