    I was wondering if there is a way to log several channels while I am away. I don't want to leave my computer on all the time, but I still want to be able to access the logs. I have a web server I could install things if there is a program that could keep a log for me on that. Do any of you know of a program?

    Thanks!

    What do you use as an IRC program? Some have logging options.

    MIRC, AcidMax and I have tried a few others, but I don't really want to leave my computer on. I can log while my computer is on, but if it is not..... Then What?

    i belive he means he wants something to run on a web server to log irc channels... he wants to turn the computer off so it dosn't matter what client hes running... i don't know of any web page apps that can do that but i would assume it would need java, cgi, asp, or php to work.... it would have to be able to log on to all of the channels and periodicly save it to a log file... and depending on the channel the logs will get quite big real quick...

    hope this helps some..

    Re: irc

    Correct!! :)

    They should not get that big as the channels are not that active...

    If you can run background processes on this webserver (such as an eggdrop bot or text irc client) you could probably have it log channels and save them into a public_html where they could be viewed via the web.

    If its just a webhosting account (and not a shell account that explicitly allows bots or irc clients) that sort of stuff is more then likely not allowed.

    I am not hosting my own web server, I am buying it, so you are thinking I cannot get it to work?

    Is there a text irc client that can be run off of a Linux server?

    Make sure what ever hosting company you chose, allows IRC connections.
