There were so many IRC services platform out there. Can you describe what are they? So here it is:
> Unreal IRCd
> beware IRCd
> and many more
List of all mention above are the most platform server would be used usually. I assume most of you would notice with word "IRCd". "d" of IRCd which mean daemon. In linux, daemon is a background process that running continuously.
In this case, I will install beware ircd.
> visit beware ircd official website
> Choose download
> Download version 1.6.2 linux, size 341 KiB
> Login to your shell VPS or dedicated server
> Use normal user and make sure port 6667 is free
How can I check it? Type netstat -an | grep 6667 .If there are no output concerning :6667 port, then it's free. If you first time to do this on new VPS that you bought, just install it. Obviously there are no one would use =].
> wget http://ircd.bircd.org/bewareircd-linux.tar.gz
> tar -zxvf bewareircd-linux.tar.gz
> cd bircd
> edit ircd.conf as your need
> edit ircd.ini as your need
> edit ircd.motd as your need
To rehash the ircd, use ./rehash .Please note its unecessary to compile the source. You just need to extract and run after that. It's pretty easy right? If you found a problem or something, let me know by comment this article.
