This could apply to other modules as well, I'd guess.

Whenever ZNC writes the config, the password for the nickserv module is lost, so either I have to log in very quickly and authenticate manually, or manually add my password to the line in znc.conf.

Discussion

  • Are you sure the password is lost?

    As far as I know, the nickserv module takes the password from the arguments and then saves it elsewhere. Then it clears the command line so that your password doesn't show up in e.g. "ListModules" or the user page in webadmin.

    So it only removes the password from the list of arguments but still remembers it internally.

  • The password isn't lost, it is stored in users/foo/moddata/, but the wiki didn't explain that.

    Scared me! Sheesh... :)
