NAMEznc - An advanced IRC bouncer
SYNOPSISznc --help znc --version znc --makepass znc [-n] [-d datadir] [-D] [-f] znc [-n] [-d datadir] [-D] [-f] --makeconf znc [-n] [-d datadir] [-D] [-f] --makepem
DESCRIPTIONznc is an IRC proxy. It runs as a daemon and connects to IRC server, then allows you to connect from a workstation and work as the user that is logged in to the IRC server. After you disconnect, it maintains the connection to the server. It acts like any normal IRC server, so you can use any IRC client to connect to it.
OPTIONS-h, --help Output a brief help message. -v, --version Show the full version number. -n, --no-color Don't use any color escape sequences. -f, --foreground Don't fork the ZNC process into the background. -D, --debug Print debug output to the console. Implies --foreground. -d DATADIR, --datadir=DATADIR Specify another datadir. This is where znc saves everything. -c, --makeconf Interactively create a new configuration. -s, --makepass Hash a password for use in znc.conf. -p, --makepem Generate znc.pem. This is the server certificate znc uses. You need this for SSL.
SIGNALSThis section explains how znc reacts to different signals: SIGINT Exit ZNC. This is equivalent to /znc shutdown SIGHUP Reload znc.conf. This is equivalent to /znc rehash SIGUSR1 Rewrite znc.conf. This is equivalent to /znc saveconfig
FILES/usr/local/share/znc/ Static module data like webadmin skins /usr/local/lib/znc/ znc installs its modules to this directory. /usr/local/include/znc/ These are the headers needed for compiling own modules. ~/.znc This is the default datadir. The following paths assume that you use this. If you change this via --datadir then the following lines are relative to that dir. ~/.znc/znc.pem This is the server certificate znc uses for listening on SSL ports. You can generate this via --makepem and you may replace this with your own certificate, if you want to. ~/.znc/modules/ If you compile your own modules, you can save them here. ~/.znc/configs/znc.conf This is the path to znc.conf. Use --makeconf for an easy way to generate it. ~/.znc/users/USERNAME/ The data for every user is saved in this dir. USERNAME refers to the user name of that user. ~/.znc/users/USERNAME/moddata/MODULENAME/ This is where each module can save some stuff. This is mainly used for remembering module settings that are not part of znc.conf. ~/.znc/moddata/MODULENAME/ This is where global modules may save their settings. ZNC(1)
