"./unrealircd reloadtls" and there is now also a "./unrealircd status" The output is colorized if the terminal supports it (just like on the boot screen) and also the exit status is 0 for success and non-0 for failure. The purpose of all this is that you can easily detect rehash errors on the command line. These three commands communicate to UnrealIRCd via the new control UNIX socket, which is in ~/data/unrealircd.ctl. This also does a lot of other stuff because we now have an internal tool called bin/unrealircdctl which is called by ./unrealircd for some of the commands to communicate to the unrealircd.ctl socket. Later on more of the existing functionality may be moved to that tool and we may also provide it on Windows in CLI mode so people have more of the same functionality as on *NIX.

UnrealIRCd is an Open Source IRC Server, serving thousands of networks since 1999. It runs on Linux, OS X and Windows and is currently the most widely deployed IRCd with a market share of 42%. UnrealIRCd is a highly advanced IRCd with a strong focus on modularity, an advanced and highly configurable configuration file. Key features include SSL/TLS, cloaking, its advanced anti-flood and anti-spam systems, swear filtering and module support. We are also particularly proud on our extensive online documentation.
- UnrealIRCd 6 is the stable series since December 2021. All new features go in there.
- UnrealIRCd 5 is the oldstable series. It will receive bug fixes until July 1, 2022 plus another 12 months of security fixes.
How to get started
Please consult our excellent online documentation at https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/ when setting up the IRCd!
Step 1: Installation
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.
Do the following steps under a separate account for running UnrealIRCd, do NOT compile or run as root.
Step 1: Compile the IRCd
- Now change to the directory where you installed UnrealIRCd, e.g.
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
./unrealircd start in the directory where you installed UnrealIRCd.
Start -> All Programs -> UnrealIRCd -> UnrealIRCd
