The easiest MIRC install ever. ''Updated to Z1''
 
  
===Included features===
 
# Automates the (usually annoying) Installation of Java ImageIO libraries.
 
# Port 80 access (default web port)
 
# Automatically starts at boot up and closes at shutdown.
 
 
===Installation===
 
 
====Important points====
 
* You need to use Ubuntu 10.04.x (Luicd) 32-bit (i386). Not 64-bit (amd64)
 
* Options:
 
** Official Ubuntu distro - http://ftp.iinet.net.au/pub/ubuntu-releases/10.04.2/ubuntu-10.04.2-server-i386.iso (or use a local mirror closer to you).
 
** Using a pre-built turnkey appliance can save some time - http://www.turnkeylinux.org/core
 
 
====First step:====
 
Install Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid 32-bit on a virtual machine or a real computer.
 
 
====Commands====
 
''The following commands should be executed as root (or using sudo)''
 
  apt-get update
 
  apt-get -y install python-software-properties
 
  apt-add-repository 'deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner'
 
  apt-add-repository ppa:timothy-john-phillips/mirc
 
  apt-get update
 
  apt-get -y install mirc
 
 
You will be asked to agree to the terms and conditions of Sun Java and then to ImageIO. Agree to it all.
 
 
===Usage===
 
 
====Web access to the MIRC site====
 
 
Point a web browswer at the IP address of your Ubuntu machine and you should see your new MIRC site.
 
 
Administrator access:
 
* username = admin
 
* password = password
 
 
====Manual startup and shutdown (rarely needed)====
 
 
From the command line:
 
 
To start the mirc server
 
  service mirc start
 
To shutdown the mirc server
 
  service mirc stop
 
To restart the mirc server
 
  service mirc restart
 
 
====What happens behind the scenes====
 
Installing the mirc package automatically installs
 
# The latest MIRC (currently Z1) into /usr/share/mirc/
 
# The sun-java6-jre package- this is the official Sun (Oracle) Java 1.6 JRE package, which lives in the partner repository.
 
# The jai-imageio-1.1 package - this is a package I created to automate the installation of the Sun (Oracle) ImageIO libraries.
 
# An Ubuntu Upstart script (mirc.conf) is installed - this automates the startup and shutdown of the MIRC server.
 
 
===Why did I bother?===
 
I've made these repositories to simplify the installation of MIRC on Linux (faster than Windows, and free).
 
At the very least it eliminates the fiddling with Java Image IO tools.
 
I plan to update it with each release of MIRC Zx.
 
 
Hope this helps someone. Appreciate any feedback. - timothy.john.phillips@gmail.com
