Raspberry Pi IRC server!
For more info about IRC (Internet Relay Chat) click here.

First update your raspberry pi image:

Sudo apt-get update
Sudo apt-get upgrade

Ready? Let’s go! 🙂

sudo aptitude install ircd-hybrid

Now create a admin password:

/usr/bin/mkpasswd “password”

This commando will give you a MD5 hashed password.

sudo nano /etc/ircd-hybrid/ircd.conf

Find section listen { part and change host = “″; to

host = “″;

Then go to the operator { section and change the password. This should be the MD5 string we created earlier also change user to user = “*@*”;
Control + X. And save the file.

sudo /etc/init.d/ircd-hybrid restart

Now you have your OWN IRC server!

First connect to ( IP ADRES OF THE PI) Port: 6667.
If you like, change more settings in the ircd.conf and make it totally your own IRC server!
