Summary0006051: UnrealIRCd 5 executable saying conf file doesn't exist when it does
DescriptionAfter installing and reinstalling, the executable gives an error saying that conf/unrealircd.conf doesn't exist when it actually does exist.

* Loading IRCd configuration..
* config error: Couldn't open "conf/unrealircd.conf": No such file or directory
* config error: Could not load config file conf/unrealircd.conf
* config error: New to UnrealIRCd? Be sure to read https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/Installing_%28Windows%29
* config error: IRCd configuration failed to load

So I can confirm, something doesn't appear to be right.

The path is relative to the install directory, which is the first answer you gave when running ./Config (it is ~/unrealircd/ by default). It is not relative to the current directory of the shell you are running Unreal from.

If that's not it, check the output of `strace -e file,chdir unrealircd`

Seemingly this is on Windows. In that case:
* UnrealIRCd.exe is in C:\Program Files\UnrealIRCd 6\bin
* unrealircd.conf goes in C:\Program Files\UnrealIRCd 6\conf

You can start UnrealIRCd 6 by clicking on the icon on the desktop.

A common mistake on Windows would be that the user does not have a conf\unrealircd.conf but a conf\unrealircd.conf.txt because file extension hiding is on in windows explorer.

(EDIT: And on UnrealIRCd 5 it would obviously be UnrealIRCd 5 instead of UnrealIRCd 6)
