How to make yourself a IRC chan op?

Hello, sorry if this isn't the right forum to post this in. I'm running a local IRC server (ircd) that I just want to be able to have a few of my friends on and stuff. Nothing big. How do I make myself a channel operator? I am a an IRC operator. When I run /oper with my username and pass, it does say "You are now an IRC operator." I've tried messing around with /mode and +o, but it never seems to work. Whenever I try that, and then try doing something on the channel that I wanted to have op permissions on, it just says "#test You're not a channel operator". What else am I supposed to do to let myself be a chan-op? Or should /mode have worked(what is the exact syntax on how I should enter that btw?) I've searched on Google for this sort of thing but haven't found much other that /mode. I apologize if this doesn't make a whole lot of sense, I really don't know much/anything about running IRC servers.

If you create a new room on an IRC server, you should automatically be opped. If you wanted to temporarily give someone operator status, you'd use /mode #chat +o nickname

However, if you wanted to give someone permanent operator access, you'd have to run some form of services. Usually this comes in the form of ChanServ, NickServ, and MemoServ. There are some basic free services that will run pretty well. If you've got ChanServ running, then you need to register the channel. Then the user has to register their nickname with Nickserv. After that, you can tell Chanserv to give access to the user whenever they enter the channel.
