This are a set of php scripts that serve up the client files and organize the rooms.

1. Create a vhost in Apache and point it to this folder. You will require mod_rewrite for it to function properly.

2. Copy www/_config.php.sample to www/_config.php and enter your own configuration settings. These help to customize the javascript files that are served to the client.

    var $port = 443; // Port that  node server is listening on
    var $domain = ''; //domain name of node server
    var $analyticsAccount = ''; // Google Analytics account
    var $analyticsDomainName = ''; // Google Analytics domain name
