Ergo (formerly known as Oragono) is a modern IRC server written in Go. Its core design


  • Being simple to set up and use
  • Combining the features of an ircd, a services framework, and a bouncer (integrated account management, history storage, and bouncer functionality)
  • Bleeding-edge IRCv3 support, suitable for use as an IRCv3 reference implementation
  • High customizability via a rehashable (i.e., reloadable at runtime) YAML config

Shipped version: 2.10.0~ynh1

Demo: https://testnet.ergo.chat/

I have an error with ergo because I get a 502 Bad Gateway trying to connect to page.

In the nginx error log I see this message

2022/07/07 18:25:24 [error] 39422#39422: *1 SSL_do_handshake() failed (SSL: error:1408F10B:SSL routines:ssl3_get_record:wrong version number) while SSL handshaking to upstream, client:, server: cybervalley.hopto.org, request: "GET /ergo/ HTTP/2.0", upstream: "", host: "cybervalley.hopto.org", referrer: "https://cybervalley.hopto.org/yunohost/sso/"

Nginx error is only for the helper page. You can still connect to your IRC server.

I made a mistake with the Nginx configuration for the helper page in one of the recent commits (and the CI did not catch it) :frowning:

Edit: I will push the fix once I’m back from my trip

If you know what is the error I can try to fix it in my installation while you are on journey :slight_smile:

The Nginx configuration should be like:

#sub_path_only rewrite ^__PATH__$ __PATH__/ permanent;
location __PATH__/ {
    alias /var/www/ergo/help/;

Where PATH is whatever /url it is in the file: /etc/Nginx/conf.d/domain.tld.d/ergo
