Unreal shouldnt be run as root either. Also Anope doesnt need to run as root to connect to Unreal if Unreal is run as root.

But seriously id strongly advise reinstalling all as a normal user. And also you dont need to redo your configurations since you can just back those up and restore them in the new locations.

There are no changes from installing as root and installing as a user. We've taken the time to include installation instructions in the docs directory. All we ask is you take the time to read them.
