I am pretty new to irc, and am poking around in it to try and understand it.

I am running CentOS 7 on a VM, and have installed charybdis-4.1.1 and atheme-7.2.10-r2, using this marvellous guide. However, while the guide does a fantastic job of telling me how to install it, it doesn’t really tell me how it works, which is kinda my aim of doing this.

What I had in mind was to set up a server and poke around it under the guidance of some online tutorial. However, I couldn’t really find any material online that explains how certain files work. I tried reading the documentation page on github, but it doesn’t really tell me how it works either.

I understand that most people use irc clients instead of actually installing and maintaining a server, which may be part of the reason why I couldn’t find any material. So….would any kind soul help in giving me a primer in how this works? Or perhaps provide a link to some tutorial on charybdis? Thank you so much!!
