Installing InspIRCd 3 using the CentOS package
An official package for CentOS is maintained by the InspIRCd Team. You can download this from the releases page.
What systems are supported by this package?
This package can be installed on all x86-64 systems running CentOS 7. Until v3.13.0 a package for CentOS 8 was also provided but due to upstream retiring this version it was replaced with a package for the binary-compatible Rocky Linux distribution.
How do I install this package?
First, download the RPM package to your server using Wget. If you do not have Wget installed you can install it using
sudo yum install wget.
# Replace the URL here with the URL you obtained from the releases page. wget "https://github.com/inspircd/inspircd/releases/download/[VERSION]/inspircd-[VERSION].el7.x86_64.rpm"
Once the package has downloaded ensure that the file has not been corrupted during download by running
sha256sum and comparing its output to the hash specified on the releases page.
# Replace the filename here with the name of the file you obtained from the releases page. sha256sum "./inspircd-[VERSION].el7.x86_64.rpm"
If the hash matches the one specified on the releases page you can proceed to install the package.
# Replace the filename here with the name of the file you obtained from the releases page. sudo yum install "./inspircd-[VERSION].el7.x86_64.rpm"
The package should now be installed and you can proceed to set up your configuration.
Once you have configured your server you can start it by running
systemctl start inspircd.service or, if you prefer not to use systemd, by running
