Setup ZCN / BNC IRC bouncer

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to get ZNC working on my router, a Linksys WRT1200ac. I am really good at following guides but I am not finding anything specific to Openwrt and ZNC. The Openwrt setup appears to be just different enough, from the znc guides, where I am not gasping what needs to happen.

This is why I am posting here. I am hoping that with some help I can get it working and when other find this they will also be able to get it working. Heck maybe I can even write up some directions.

Anyway, here is simple overview of what I have done and what I have seen.

Ran “# opkg update”

Ran “# opkg install znc” this installed version 1.7.5-1

Ran “# /etc/init.d/znc stop”

Modified setting in “/etc/config/znc” using nano.

Ran “# /etc/init.d/znc start”

However, when I then run “# /etc/init.d/znc status” it says "active with no instances"

When I run “# ps aux | grep znc” the process is not found.

ps aux | grep znc

root 4976 0.0 0.1 1104 532 pts/0 S+ 01:42 0:00 grep znc

I realize that part of my issue might be that user ZNC exists and this user should be starting/running the process. I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I appreciate any assistance.
