quasselcore — the daemon process for the Quassel IRC client
Quassel IRC is a modern, cross-platform, distributed IRC client, meaning that one (or multiple) client(s) can attach to and detach from a central core -- much like the popular combination of screen and a text-based IRC client such as WeeChat, but graphical. quasselcore provides the daemon which connects to IRC networks, allowing any number of Quassel clients to connect, including the official desktop client, the quasselclient program.
--add-user Starts an interactive session to add a new core user --change-userpass=USERNAME Starts an interactive session to change the password of the user identified by USERNAME. -c, --configdir=CONFIGDIR Specify the directory holding the configuration files, the SQLite database with chat logs (unless another database backend is selected), and the SSL/TLS certificate. --config-from-environment Load configuration from environment variables, ignoring the configuration file. See the section on ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES. -d, --debug Enable extra debugging output. Requires setting --loglevel=Debug. --debug-irc Enable logging of all raw IRC messages to debug log, including passwords! In most cases you should also set --loglevel Debug. --debug-irc-id=DATABASENETWORKID Limit raw IRC logging to this network ID. Implies --debug-irc. -h, --help Show help message. --ident-daemon Enable internal ident daemon. --ident-listen=IDENTLISTEN The address(es) quasselcore will listen on for ident requests. Same format as --listen. Only meaningful with --ident-daemon. Default is: ::1,127.0.0.1 (only localhost) --ident-port=IDENTPORT The port the quasselcore will listen at for ident requests. Only meaningful with --ident-daemon. Default is: 10113 --listen=LISTEN The address(es) quasselcore will listen on. Default is: ::,0.0.0.0 (all addresses) -L, --loglevel=LOGLEVEL Set the logging level to LOGLEVEL: Debug, Info, Warning, Error. Default is: Info -l, --logfile=LOGFILE Log to a file. -n, --norestore Don't restore last core's state, such as previously connected networks. --oidentd Enable oidentd integration. In most cases you should also enable --strict-ident. --oidentd-conffile=OIDENTCONF Set path to oidentd configuration file. -p, --port=PORT The port quasselcore will listen at. Default is: 4242 --require-ssl Require SSL for remote (non-loopback) client connections. --select-authenticator=AUTHENTICATOR Starts an interactive session to switch your current user authentication backend to the new one. --select-backend=BACKEND Starts an interactive session to switch your current storage backend to the new one. Attempts a merge if the new backend is uninitialized and the old backend supports migration, otherwise prompts for new user credentials. --ssl-cert=SSLCERTFILE Specify the path to the SSL certificate. Reloaded when quasselcore is sent a SIGHUP. Default is: CONFIGDIR/quasselCert.pem --ssl-key=SSLKEYFILE Specify the path to the SSL key. Reloaded when quasselcore is sent a SIGHUP. Only needed if not combined with the SSL certificate. --strict-ident Use users' quasselcore username as ident reply. Ignores each user's configured ident setting. Useful for multi-user quasselcores connecting to IRC networks that require a fixed identifier for each user. --syslog Log to syslog. -v, --version Display version information.
When --config-from-environment is specified, the quasselcore will use the following environment variables instead of the configuration file. This may be useful for container setups or automated deployment. AUTH_AUTHENTICATOR Specifies the selected user authentication backend. See --select-authenticator. AUTH_LDAP_BASE_DN Specifies the LDAP authenticator base DN. AUTH_LDAP_BIND_DN Specifies the LDAP authenticator bind DN. AUTH_LDAP_BIND_PASSWORD Specifies the LDAP authenticator bind password. AUTH_LDAP_FILTER Specifies the LDAP authenticator filter. AUTH_LDAP_HOSTNAME Specifies the LDAP authenticator connection hostname. AUTH_LDAP_PORT Specifies the LDAP authenticator connection port. AUTH_LDAP_UID_ATTRIBUTE Specifies the LDAP authenticator UID attribute. DB_BACKEND Specifies the selected database backend. See --select-backend. DB_PGSQL_DATABASE Specifies the Postgres connection database name. DB_PGSQL_HOSTNAME Specifies the Postgres connection hostname. DB_PGSQL_USERNAME Specifies the Postgres connection username. DB_PGSQL_PASSWORD Specifies the Postgres connection user password. DB_PGSQL_PORT Specifies the Postgres connection port.
/var/lib/quassel Configuration files, the SQLite database with chat logs (unless another database backend is selected), and the SSL/TLS certificate. To override, see --configdir. /etc/default/quasselcore Additional configuration parameters, including default port and logging level.
In a typical installation, quasselcore runs as the quasselcore user, with configuration data stored in /var/lib/quassel. When manually running quasselcore, you should specify the proper user and --configdir as follows. $ sudo --user=quasselcore \ quasselcore --configdir=/var/lib/quassel [OPTIONS]
