Codeigniter Chat

This is a basic shoutboard built using codeigniter. Originally only used XML for the backend, but was rewritten to illustrate different types of web services. It has been updated to use CodeIgniter 3.1.0.

Installation

  1. git clone git@github.com:llbbl/codeigniter-chat.git
  2. Rename application/config/database-default.php to database.php
  3. Modify database.php to include your MySQL connection details
  4. Run the create.sql (does not include schema create)

Configuration

  • Setup the Webserver DocumentRoot to point to public folder inside the codeigniter chat folder
  • Assuming you have setup the project under the domain example.local, Open a browser and goto example.local/chat (See Below for Webserver configuration)

Web Server Configuration

If you are using nginx, configure the example below and put in sites available/enabled folders.

If you are using Apache there is already a .htaccess file in the public folder ready to start working. Make sure you have mod_rewrite enabled.

nginx

server{
	server_name default.local;
	root /Web/default;
	
	listen 80;
	index index.php index.html index.htm;
	
    access_log /Web/logs/default.access.log;
    error_log /Web/logs/default.error.log;
	
	location / {
		try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;
	}

	location ~ \.php$ {
		try_files $uri =404;
			
		fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
		fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
		fastcgi_read_timeout 150;
		fastcgi_index index.php;
		fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
		include fastcgi_params;
	}
