Updating old webirc configs fixes “CGI:IRC — No access”

If you own an IRC server you can choose to setup webirc so people can access your network via Mibbit without issues. It’s easy to do.

If you already have a webirc config but it’s not been updated in a while it’s good practice to check the configuration has all four IPs in the CGI:IRC block. Without all four the connection may not be reliable. ¬†What you need to edit depends on the IRCd you have, for the most common ones like Inspired and Unreal – we have info which may help you here.

Once you’ve completed setup and we make the corresponding entry our end you’ll get all the benefits of receiving complete connection data for users to help avoid cloaking and manage things appropriately. :)
