== How to install MIRC-Zn on Ubuntu Linux ==
 
* Download the script
 
wget http://timphillips.net/mirc/install-MIRC-Zn
 
* Make it executable
 
chmod 777 ./install-MIRC-Zn
 
* Run the script
 
./install-MIRC-Zn
 
* Point your browser to the machine you just installed it on and MIRC should be up and running.
 
* This script will also upgrade a previous "Tim Phillips" installation of MIRC-Zn so it can be used again when the RSNA code is updated.
 
== Commands to control or upgrde the MIRC web service ==
 
To start MIRC (it will start automatically when the machine boots)
 
start MIRC-Zn
 
To stop MIRC:
 
stop MIRC-Zn
 
To check if MIRC is running:
 
status MIRC-Zn
 
To restart MIRC:
 
restart MIRC-Zn
 
To upgrade MIRC with the latest MIRC-Zn code from RSNA (and preserve all your data):
 
upgrade-mirc
 
==What the script does (feel free to look at it before you run it)==
 
  
* Checks you're running it as root or using sudo.
 
* Stops the MIRC-Zn service if its running.
 
* Updates the Ubuntu repos if need be.
 
* Checks which chipset you're running.
 
* (If Oracle / Sun Java 6 isn't already installed)
 
** Answers the Java installation questions in advance.
 
** Installs Oracle / Sun Java.
 
* Downloads the appropriate JAI ImageIO files installs JAI ImageIO.
 
* Installs a few other necessary applications if they're not already installed.
 
* Downloads the latest version of MIRC-Zn.
 
* Writes an upstart script (so that CTP/MIRC will be run as a service automatically).
 
* Installs RSNA MIRC.
 
 
==Choosing between Ubuntu Desktop and Ubuntu Server for a MIRC install==
 
* Ubuntu Desktop
 
** Easier (very easy) if you're new to Linux.
 
** May be very slightly slower but on modern hardware you are unlikely to notice the difference.
 
* Ubuntu Server
 
** Makes more sense - MIRC is a web service after all.
 
** Will be leaner and faster.
 
** Can run on a headless server or virtual machine.
 
** [http://turnkeylinux.org TurnkeyLinux] is a very good Ubuntu install for this purpose.
