Insane chaotic new chat feature for sysadmins
« on: July 19, 2010, 05:09:15 AM »
See http://mortalmist.com/forum/town-hall/insane-chaotic-new-chat-feature/

Two services need to be started as root if the system is restarted for this to work--without them the second link will result in broken chat.  Both reside in

/var/www/html/forum/chat-flash/socket/

for now.  Do:

./FlashPolicyService.php

and

./server start

in that directory.  As root.

If this ends up working, I'll make a script to start them automatically.

So far it seems pretty stable for me!

Did a reboot this morning - had to mark both files as executable before  being able to start them.

Hmm.. Did you do it in the chat-flash or regular chat directory?  I'd better go check.

I really wish we  could get this to work--when it did, it was a lot faster.

Oh, you didn't (in the regular dir.)  Sorry!  Wonder how that happened?

I don't know.  Haven't had to reboot since, but will be needing to this week because of a Livna change coming up for the local display.

I might remove flash chat, because there's something I want to try soon that might work better.
So don't worry about rebooting--I don't think anyone is using this regularly anyway.

I've removed all of this, it doesn't look like it's gonna happen.  I'd rather focus my efforts on XMPP.  Removed the directory and so the steps above couldn't be taken even if you wanted to.  Now let's never speak of it again.

XD  Shall it be considered swept under the rug like that potted plant your kid brother broke and was trying to hide from mom?

Not only that, but there is no suspicious bulge anywhere to suggest it ever happened.  :content:

All good.  It was a worthy experiment.
