I started by eggdrop bot but it never joined IRC

No show?

If your bot didn't appear on IRC, you should log in to the shell and view or download the bot's logfile (as set in the config file—the default is "logs/eggdrop.log"). Note that logfile entries are not written to disk immediately unless quick-logs is enabled, so you may have to wait a few minutes before the logfile appears, or contains messages that indicate why your bot isn't showing up.

If you're still unsure what the problem is, try asking in the Eggdrop Help section of the user forum, and be sure to include any relevant information from the logfile.
