This is the setup process I follow to setup a DC++ Hub, which I use for Adam Internet's Community Net.
I use DBHub (http://www.dbhub.org/) for the Hub software.
The system this process works on:
Linux Ubuntu 2.6.28-11-generic (mythubuntu)
I have included a modified configure file because as of Perl 5.10 DynaLoader is no longer in DynaLoader.a but is now included in libperl.a.
*So if you receive an error like (DynaLoader.a not found, then use my modified configure file).
First install the needed dependencies:
sudo apt-get install build-essential libperl-dev
Download the needed files:
wget http://internode.dl.sourceforge.net/project/dbhub/DB%20Hub/0.451/dbhub-0.451.tgz wget http://allintech.info/wp-content/uploads/dbhub/configure-0.451
Run the following commands to configure and compile DBHub with Perl scripting support
tar -zxf dbhub-0.451.tgz cd dbhub-0.451 cp ../configure-0.451 configure ./configure --enable-perl make make install
when you first run dbhub it will setup the config file, so make sure you ran it as the user you want to run the hub. i.e if I use the root user to run the command then the config will be stored in /root/.dbhub
Enter in a port to listen on (411)
Set a Username and Password for the owner user
DBHub will now be running and listening for connections.
