ZNC is an advanced IRC bouncer that is left connected so an IRC client can disconnect/reconnect without losing the chat session.

Installation

Install the znc package. The installation script will create a group and user znc. The default home directory for this user is /var/lib/znc.

Generate ZNC config as user znc.

$ sudo -u znc znc --makeconf

Go through the wizard and setup your preferences.

Warning: Do not edit configuration files manually in a text editor while ZNC is running. There is a very good chance you will lose your configuration. Use the webadmin or controlpanel modules to change settings on-the-fly. They are both included in the package.

Enable znc.service to make it start on boot. Start and stop the ZNC daemon as usual with systemd.

Configuration

Though you can choose to modify your configuration files manually, this requires shutting down the server first. Do not edit configuration files while ZNC is running.

Webadmin Module

If you enabled the web admin module, you can access it at http://yourhostname:port, the znc port number is the same as you defined for connecting to the bouncer.

Control Panel Module

If you enabled the control panel module, /msg *controlpanel help for a list of settings while you are connected to the server.
