Module Manager

InspIRCd ships with a tool called ./modulemanager. This tool allows you to easily install modules that are not included with the default distribution, such as third party modules and modules which have been backported from later versions. The module manager tool is located in the root directory of your InspIRCd installation.


Use: ./modulemanager <action> <args>
Action is one of the following
 install   install new modules
 upgrade   upgrade installed modules
 list      lists available modules

For installing a package, specify its name or name=version to force the installation of a specific version.

Installing modules without the module manager

If for some reason you are unable to use the module manager you can download and install modules manually using the following steps:

  1. Download the module you wish to install from the inspircd-extras repository on GitHub.

  2. Move it to the src/modules directory.

  3. Run "make install" to build and install the module.
