To do.

Quick install
-------------
If you're the system administrator of Linux/Unix/Cygwin like machine,
to install the package, use following commads. The first one can be
left out if you already have all the required Perl modules.
make install-cpan
make install
The default installation structure:
/etc/pastebot/ Configuration files
/usr/share/pastebot Libraries
/usr/bin executables
------------
Requirements
------------
Perl 5.005, but Perl 5.6.1 or newer is recommended.
You'll need the following Perl modules.
Filter::Util::Call (comes with perl 5.8.1)
HTTP::Request
HTTP::Response
HTTP::Status
POE
POE::Component::IRC
Storable (comes with perl 5.8.1)
Text::Template
Time::HiRes
URI
Perl::Tidy, which is part of perltidy, at http://perltidy.sf.net/
----------
Setting up
----------
Rename pastebot.conf-dist to pastebot.conf (unless you have one already).
Customize your new/existing pastebot.conf.
Run pastebot.perl.
Pastebot is its own web server. It often cannot bind to port 80
because some other web server is already there. That's why its
default port (in pastebot.conf-dist) is 8888. This is hostile towards
people behind firewalls.
Apache users can use ProxyPass to map a directory on their port-80
servers to a running pastebot. This feature requires Apache be built
with both mod_proxy and mod_proxy_add_forward.c support, and that the
add forward module come before the proxy module:
./configure --enable-module=proxy \
--activate-module=src/modules/extra/mod_proxy_add_forward.c \
--enable-module=proxy_add_forward \
--permute-module=proxy:END \
...
Create a virtual location for the proxy directory.
<Location /pastebot>
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
Deny from none
</Location>
Tell Apache to forward any requests in the /pastebot/ directory
through to the local pastebot process.
ProxyPass /pastebot/ http://127.0.0.1:8000/
Now people can use pastebot on port 80. Be sure to set the 'iname'
configuration flag in the pastebot.conf web_server configuration section
to hide the internal host/port values. Also be sure to set the proxy
parameter:
web_server
...
proxy 127.0.0.1
iname http://example.org/pastebot/

Errors
------
* IRC client (foo): socket error occurred: Can't assign requested address
The most likely cause of this is an unknown host name, either for a
local machine or a remote IRC server. If you have multiple servers
specified, the bot will try the next server in approximately one
minute.
* Can't locate [some module] in @INC (@INC contains: ...)
Somehow you managed to install one of pastebot's required modules
without installing a module it in turn needs. You'll need to install
[some module] manually.
* <something> section <name> is redefined at ##
This error looks something like:
pastes section pbtest is redefined at 68
Compilation failed in require at Server/Web.pm line 18, <MPH> line 85.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Server/Web.pm line 18, <MPH> line 85.
Compilation failed in require at ./pastebot.perl line 9, <MPH> line 85.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./pastebot.perl line 9, <MPH> line 85.
To fix, update the pastebot.conf to use different names for the
different sections:
web_server
name poenet
...
irc
name efnet
...
pastes
name neitherpoenetnorefnet
...
