If all prerequisites are satisfied the installation may start.
!Important! Before you start with any installation provide a good backup of your own webspace first.
It is recommended to install the chat into a separate folder. A collision with previously provided content will be avoided.
The script install.php and the whole directory must be copied into the folder create before.
The script install.php, invoked by the browser, will finish the installation process.
The address of the script should be as following: https://mydomain/mydirectory/install.php or http://mydomain/mydirectory/install.php
The script will ask for important parameters for the operation of the chat.
Among other things will be asked for:
If all options are defined the click to the "Install" button will trigger the actual installation.
When this is finished the login to the chat is open.
Directly after the very first installation the login of the administrator must be done.
As long as the installdata are present on the server the installation process can be redone. In order to avoid a security risk the install data should be removed from the server. It can be done by hand or by using the appropriate check in the install script.
While communication the security is guaranteed by using the HTTPS protokoll. If HTTP is used contents and password might be read by third party.
At the server most of the data are stored in directories, which are marked as unreadable for the webserver by using .htaccess.
Private content , including the private images or archives are visible for the chat participants only (if HTTPS is used!).
Contributions will be deleted after 1 day.
The scripts will not support a backup or offer something to recover data. But it is impossible to prevent the webhoster creating archive backup. The webhoster may provide the information about this.
Some parts of the chat can be induvidualized. The following individual arquives will not be overwritten in case of an update or a consecutive install:
Experts can modify and add some code that allows e.g. emoticons at the test input. The code of entities_in is positioned directly under the text input of the contributions. Entities_out corresponds to it at the text-formatting PHP-script.
An image and a short message can be organized from time to time. The image of the day is shown very present in the main chat window.
Quite a number of sites offering an own small icon for the browser. It will be provided by the archive favicon.ico. An own favicon can be prepared and improve the look of the site.
That simple PNG will be shown on top of each page of the chat. An optimal size of it would be 149x95 pixels. The name and the type PNG are fixed by the source code and not exchangeable.
Just removing the prepared directory with its complete substructer guarantees the deinstallation of the chat. The chat and all its components are removed.
The admistrator will find a link on the Admin-page which will inform about existing updates. Further information about updating, if possible, are to be found there.
