As I followed this guide when I run this command ./inspircd start I always get this error:

newircd@debian:~/inspircd-3.10.0$ ./inspircd start
-bash: ./inspircd: No such file or directory

This is very annoying. I really need your help please!

Please note your version might be different and as such your path to your folder might be different.
