InspIRCd @ OVERdrive-IRC

This repository contains a slightly modified InspIRCd used in production on the OVERdrive-IRC network.

Installation instructions

  1. Clone the repository.
  2. Run modules.sh to initialize the contrib modules that we use on our network.
  3. ./configure and compile the IRCd like normal.
    • Note to sysadmins: please compile with at least either GnuTLS or OpenSSL enabled!
  4. After finishing this step, you do not need to configure the IRCd any further. Send the config manager (you know who) SSH login details to your IRCd account, and we’ll take care of the rest.


InspIRCd is a modular Internet Relay Chat (IRC) server written in C++ for Linux, BSD, Windows and Mac OS X systems which was created from scratch to be stable, modern and lightweight.

As InspIRCd is one of the few IRC servers written from scratch, it avoids a number of design flaws and performance issues that plague other more established projects, such as UnrealIRCd, while providing the same level of feature parity.

InspIRCd is one of only a few IRC servers to provide a tunable number of features through the use of an advanced but well documented module system. By keeping core functionality to a minimum we hope to increase the stability, security and speed of InspIRCd while also making it customisable to the needs of many different users.
