123 Chat support

Post by Ryan009 »

Has anybody used this? Their support site is dead.

Disclaimer - I am extremely new to running a forum!

I've had PHPBB 3.0X up and running for about 2 months now. I got a request for a chat room so I decided to try 123.

I manually made all the changes per the instructions (actually did it twice) but I keep having problems.

As soon as I get to modifying the index.php file per following instuctions:
Open File:
root/index.php

Find:
$birthday_list = '';

After add:
// begin 123 flash chat mod
include($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/functions_chat.'.$phpEx);
$chat_info = getChatters();
$chat_list = getChatterList();
//end 123 flash chat mod
CODE: SELECT ALL
Open File:
root/index.php

Find:
'TOTAL_USERS' => sprintf($user->lang[$l_total_user_s], $total_users),

After add:
// begin 123 flash chat mod
'CHAT_TOTAL_ROOMS' => $chat_info['room_numbers'],
'CHAT_TOTAL_CONNECTIONS' => $chat_info['connections'],
'CHAT_TOTAL_LOGON_USERS' => $chat_info['logon_users'],
'CHAT_USER_LIST' => $chat_list,
'CHAT_WIDTH' => $config['chat_width'],
'CHAT_HEIGHT' => $config['chat_height'],
//end 123 flash chat mod

I can no longer load the site. It downloads the following error:
<br />
<b>Fatal error</b>: Call to undefined function getchatters() in <b>/home/XXXXXX/public_html/test/index.php</b> on line <b>86</b><br />

So I tried putting the index file back to its original state (worked fine) and tried continuing with the MOD thinking I would come back to it.

The MOD installs fine through the ACP, but whenever I try to select the 123chat MOD tab, I get this:
Return to the index page
General Error
Language file ./../language/en_us/mods/chat.php couldn't be opened.

What am I doing wrong? I triple checked that I uploaded all the correct files to the correct locations?

Make sure that file is uploaded and also make sure includes/functions_chat.php is also in the correct place

I made sure all the files are there, but it doesn't seem to matter.

I had setup a subdomain to test this install. Once I set it up, I did a fresh install of phpbb.

The site works fine and is accessed by test.XXXXXXXX.com, it doesn't have it's own domain registration.

When it called for installing root files, I installed them on the root level of the "Test" folder. This "Test Folder" is inside my main domain folder. Could this be causing part of the problem? Do I need to change the path in anyway?
