Installing cometchat-detailed post.

installed cometchat (that is zipped it to /home/mrcoffee/public_html/cometchat

this is the intrstions i was following.

load the code..

goodie! on to step 2.

If the installation was completed successfully, then two lines of HTML code will be displayed on your screen. Please copy these two lines.


this shows,

Warning: include_once(/home/mrcoffee/public_html//application/libraries/OFC/JSON.php) [function.include-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/mrcoffee/public_html/cometchat/integration.php on line 19

Warning: include_once() [function.include]: Failed opening '/home/mrcoffee/public_html//application/libraries/OFC/JSON.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/mrcoffee/public_html/cometchat/integration.php on line 19

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (not the ~ )

Step 2

Now edit your template header.

Insert the copied code into your Elgg header.php file immediately after the <head> tag.

This file is generally present at /views/default/page_elements/header.php

thats not there. instead i have /home/mrcoffee/public_html/mod/socialize/views/default/page/elements/header.php

there is no <head> tag at all. the code reads...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (not ~)

 * Elgg page header
 * In the default theme, the header lives between the topbar and main content area.

// link back to main site.
echo elgg_view('page/elements/header_logo', $vars);

// drop-down login
echo elgg_view('core/account/login_dropdown');

// insert site-wide navigation
if (elgg_is_logged_in()) {
    echo elgg_view_menu('site');

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(end code)


if i paste the codes, site crashes. yea i knew it wold bt hab to try..

Now delete install.php file from the cometchat folder.

confession. i only changed nae of file to gibberish so it wont load. that way if site goes bang, can fix.


Soo.. how do i get this to work?


/home/mrcoffee/public_html/cometchat/integration.php reads..

include_once dirname(dirname(__FILE__)) . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . '/application/libraries/OFC/JSON.php';
