Having trouble with mChat lately

Postby Mike86 » 21 Dec 2014, 08:25

Hey I recently switched hosts and simply copied everything over (files and database) to my new host. Everything is working except mChat. I uninstalled mchat and attempted to reinstall it as it was not accepting new messages, you would type a message and press send and nothing would happen. During reinstalling, when I get to the .....mchat_install.php file part, I get a lovely 403 Access denied in my browser. And I can't figure out what the heck is wrong. Let me know what I need to post for addition tech info.

With reading some previous topics, it seems it could likely be the host, so I'm contacting them and I'll update when I hear back from them.

Neculai, what does that have to do with mchat_install php file stating 403?

To the OP ignore what Neculai stated and via FTP check the permissions on the file (they should be set to 644) and if set correctly your new host may not allow ajax based chats so you would have to check with them.

He doesn't need to run the install file anymore.

Well I just put in all the old files so everything is there. But the chat doesn't work when you click send. And if you click on any of the buttons like, Archive, Purge it goes right to that 403 access denied page. I did remove that line from the overall_header file but still doesn't work. And the chmod permissions are correct :(. Might have to look for a host that will allow your mod lol

Try the mod on prosilver without any jquery except for jquery mini and cookie mini and that's how you can find out if there is a problem with your host or your style.

Yes it is a free account. I made the changes in both files and refreshed everything and it's still not working and showing 403 error.

What version of mchat are you using?


[phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/vendor/twig/twig/lib/Twig/Extension/Core.php on line 1266: count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable
