About PissIRCd

PissIRCd is a branch of UnrealIRCd Open Source IRC Server meant for serving thousands of piss since 2021. It is hoped that it lasts as downstream to mainline UnrealIRCd. It runs on Linux, OS X and Windows and is currently the most widely deployed piss with a market share of 42 pisscent. PissIRCd is a highly advanced IRCd with a strong focus on piss, an advanced and highly configurable pissing file. Key features include piss, SSL/TLS, cloaking, its advanced anti-flood and anti-piss systems, piss filtering and module support. We are also particularly proud on our piss online documentation.

How to get started

Use the wiki!

IMPORTANT: We recommend you follow our installation guide on the wiki instead of the steps in this README. The wiki has more detailed information and is more easy to navigate.

Please consult the online documentation at https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/ when setting up the IRCd!

Step 1: Installation

Windows

Simply download the UnrealIRCd Windows version from www.unrealircd.org

Alternatively you can compile UnrealIRCd for Windows yourself. However this is not straightforward and thus not recommended.

*BSD/Linux/macOS

Do the following steps under a separate account for running UnrealIRCd, do NOT compile or run as root.

Step 1: Compile the IRCd

  • Run ./Config
  • Run make
  • Run make install
  • Now change to the directory where you installed UnrealIRCd, e.g. cd /home/xxxx/unrealircd

Step 2: Configuration

Configuration files are stored in the conf/ folder by default (eg: /home/xxxx/unrealircd/conf)

Create a configuration file

If you are new, then you need to create your own configuration file: Copy conf/examples/example.conf to conf/ and call it unrealircd.conf. Then open it in an editor and carefully modify it using the documentation and FAQ as a guide (see below).

Step 3: Booting

Linux/*BSD/macOS

Run ./unrealircd start in the directory where you installed UnrealIRCd.

Windows

Start -> All Programs -> UnrealIRCd -> UnrealIRCd
