Installation of iroffer mod Dinoex on Linux with virtual hosts setup

Installation steps

  1. Create user "bot" und domain "bot.domain.net" with plexx/confix.

  2. As root, change into the directory of the user "bot".
    cd /var/www/vhosts/bot.domain.net/
    
  3. Create a new directoty only for iroffer.
    mkdir iroffer
    cd iroffer/
    
  4. Get the sources for the program.
    wget http://iroffer.dinoex.net/iroffer-dinoex-snap.tar.gz
    
  5. Extract the sources.
    tar -xvzf iroffer-dinoex-snap.tar.gz
    
  6. We configure the sources for our Linux version.
    cd iroffer-dinoex-snap
    ./Configure -curl -geoip -ruby
    
  7. Should "Configure" report some errors, we have to retry after installing the missing packages.
    Sufficient under Debian:
    apt-get install make
    apt-get install gcc
    apt-get install libc-dev
    apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev
    apt-get install libgeoip-dev
    apt-get install libssl-dev
    apt-get install ruby-dev
    apt-get install ruby
    
  8. We build the program.
    make
    
  9. Now we copy the program to the right place.
    cp -p iroffer ..
    
  10. We start with the "sample.config.
    cp sample.config ../mybot.config
    cd ..
    chown bot mybot.config
    chmod 600 mybot.config
    
  11. Only the bot needs to have write permissions here.
    cd ..
    chown bot .
    chmod 700 .
    
  12. We create a password for the admin-chat.
    ./iroffer -c mybot.config
    
  13. We add the directories to the configuration file "mybot.config".
    "adminhost" should be set to your hostmask.
    We set the path for "mybot.state" and "mybot.txt" so wthe weblist can access them.
    The directories for the files is added and we uses it also for uploads.
    mybot.config should include:
    logfile /iroffer/mybot.log
    pidfile /iroffer/mybot.pid
    statefile /httpdocs/mybot.state
    xdcclistfile /httpdocs/mybot.txt
    filedir /files
    uploaddir /files
    
  14. We create the directory for the files.
    cd ..
    mkdir files
    chown bot files
    
    Here we can upload the files with FTP or with XDCC later.

  15. Download the source of the weblist.
    wget http://iroffer.dinoex.net/iroffer-state217.zip
    cd httpdocs
    unzip ../iroffer-state217.zip
    touch size.data
    cp iroffer-sample.php index.php
    
  16. Edit the configuration of the weblist.
    nano -w index.php
    
    or
    vim index.php
    
    In the file index.php you define und 2) one line with the nickname of your bot:
    # 2) Set nickname by hand
    #$nick = 'XDCC|irofferbot';
    $nick = 'XDCC|mybot';
    
  17. We create a startup script.
    cd ..
    
    then
    nano -w start-iroffer.sh
    
    or
    vim start-iroffer.sh
    
    Here we add the following lines:
    #!/bin/sh
    cd iroffer
    ./iroffer -b -u bot -t /var/www/vhosts/bot.domain.net /iroffer/mybot.config
    
  18. Make the script executeable.
    chmod +x start-iroffer.sh
    
  19. Start.
    sh start-iroffer.sh
    
    Now the bot should run and connect.

  20. If iroffer fails to resolve the DNS name of the IRC server inside your chroot:
    mkdir /var/www/vhosts/bot.domain.net/etc
    cp -p /etc/resolv.conf /etc/nsswitch.conf /var/www/vhosts/bot.domain.net/etc/
    mkdir /var/www/vhosts/bot.domain.net/lib
    cp -p /lib/libnss_dns.so.2 /lib/libresolv.so.2 /var/www/vhosts/bot.domain.net/lib/
    
    The bot don't have to be restarted to conenct.
