How to join ##php channel on freenode?

How to join ##php channel on freenode?

  1. Get an IRC client. I recommend Hexchat. Any IRC client will do. You can even use freenode webchat, if you don't want to install one.
  2. Connect to freenode. If you're using HexChat, just type /server freenode and it should connect you.
  • The ##php channel requires you to be identified to NickServ to join. To register your nickname, type the following command:

      /msg nickserv register Y0uR-Str0nG-P@SsW0rd valid-email@addre.ss
    
  1. Check your email inbox (spam/junk too) and verify the account by executing the command in the email.

  2. To join the ##php channel, simply type the following command:

     /join ##php
    
  3. Enjoy.

What's the exact command you're typing and what's the error you're getting?

Are you IRCing as root? Or do you have root in your ident section? ##php has a wildcard banmask matching all such users.

You can do /mode ##php b to review the banlist yourself. If you still can't find out why you've been banned, post your client name and netmask here (nick!ident@host) and I'll take a look.

When using the freenode IRC web client, one is banned in ##php.
