Troubleshooting Running Issues
When starting Anope all of the nicknames and channels exipre
This may be caused by clocks that are wrong. To fix it, run Anope like this:Nix:
This forces Anope to not let nicknames expire on startup and gives people a chance to use their nicknames/channels to reset the time they were last used to the current clock. Nicknames that are not used will expire if Anope is restarted or if you type:
/msg operserv set noexpire off
When starting Anope I get this error: ELF file OS ABI invalid
If you get something like that, it means you have probably moved compiled files to another machine that can't read them. If you are moving services to another server, you must compile Anope on that server as well - moving the compiled files over and trying to run them will most likely fail.
Ex. You currently run services on FreeBSD but you want to move them to an Ubuntu box instead. If you move the source directory over with compiled files and try to do ./Config and make again, it will fail because there are already compiled files. Before you try to rebuild Anope, you must type the following in the anope-1.8.x directory:
This will remove compiled files and allow you to rebuild Anope.
