New: Security and IRCOp guide

Post by Syzop »

UnrealIRCd already has lots of documentation about configuration, user modes, channel modes and an excellent FAQ.

We also have an article about everyday IRCOp tasks. Especially for people who are new to running an IRC server these are important things to learn. The new guide is available here: IRCOp guide. It tells you how to kill and ban users, how to gather information about users and channels, how to take control of channels, a word about services and server linking, etc.

However, what if your server is under attack? For that we now have the Security article which mentions all the security measures that UnrealIRCd has in one place, so you can quickly resolve the situation or at least contain it. Naturally that article is also recommended reading if you are NOT under attack.
