Many people seem to be installing ZNC using some weird instructions and don’t ever upgrade after that. This is yet another unofficial install guide, but with this you should be able to upgrade too.
This is not the official install guide, if you are looking for that, click here. You will find these same instructions there too though.
Step 0: If you had already installed ZNC from source, go to the source
directory and run
make uninstall or
sudo make uninstall if needed.
- Install required package for adding PPAs:
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
- Add the PPA
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:teward/znc
- Refresh list of packages in the repos
sudo apt-get update
- If you had installed ZNC from Ubuntu repositories, now you could run
sudo apt-get upgrade, otherwise finally install ZNC with
sudo apt-get install znc.
ZNC is now installed. If you had it running before installing from PPA, you should restart it especially if it was different version than what the PPA has.
Now you can either (new ZNC user) run
znc --makeconf to create config
file and then (existing ZNC user) run
znc and your ZNC starts listening
on where you told it to listen.
