A free, simple, fast and customizable chat server Simple You only have to copy/paste 3 lines of code to have a nice working chat. No need to configure a database (Mysql), messages and nicknames are stored in files. No problems with firewall, this chat is based on HTTP so that you only need a web browser and an internet connection. (everybody can easily chat !) No problems with none latin characteres ! Are you Russian, Japanese, Turk, Chinese, or Arabic ? Whatever, phpfreechat will display nicely your characters because it uses XML with UTF8 to encode characters. Fast AJAX technology is used to smoothly refresh (no flicker) and display the chat zone and the nickname zone. Messages and nicknames are stored into a simple filesystem, so that server resources are saved to the uttermost. Bandwidth is preserved because the server never transmits twice the same data : only new messages are transmitted. Customizable You can write your own customized CSS stylesheets, to completely change the appearance of your chat. All chat functionalities are customizable. For example, you can change the messages refresh time, you can ban users for changing their usernames... The plugin system allows you to write your own storage routines. For example, you can write a plugin to store the conversations into your database. Opensource phpFreeChat is an opensource (LGPL) program, so that you can freely use it and modify it. I just ask, by gratitude, to keep the sign logo on the pages of your chat. All phpFreeChat commands are inspired by the irc protocol, and its interface is inspired by mIRC and XChat, so that users won't be disoriented. Techonologies used by phpFreeChat are : * php : on the server side : conversations are simply stored in filesystems. * xajax : for the asynchronous communication between the client and the server (phpFreeChat do NOT use mysql) -------------------------------------------------------------- List of References Document's URL: http://www.phpfreechat.net/overview.en.html
