    Help me!Designing shoutbox

    Hello..im new here..Im about to design web page for intranet(LAN webpage) at my university. Well my problem here is, I wan to have a shoutbox at my web page but all the shoutbox i get/search is must using internet. It mean the shoutbox database is at other website and in order my shoutbox to function, they must have internet activity. My university got very limited internet connection and only open certain time. So here I wanna ask you all to help me give the shoutbox for my web page that it doesn't need to use internet connection. A shoutbox can stand without using internet connection.

    Sory for my bad english. I can explain in Malay if someone doesn't understand me. Help me YA! tenkiu!!

    i believe u are hosting the page on ur own PC over the intranet right? as long as u have database system install in ur pc then u can build a shoutbox

    here's a tutorial which i wrote to build a simple shoutbox.

    no one gonna help you on email / messenger.
    they had their own life.

    why dont just you ask and learn here?

    1 - setup local server. with apache / php / mysql ability.
    2 - all pc can browse the server cpu via ip or... name server http;//shoutoutsomething (example) using browsers.
    3 - make database and install free shout script.
    done.

    but it's all depend on : HOW LAZY YOU ARE..

    if you only know html. .that was hard task for you.
    you must do more learning process, let say triple up it.
    study the php as fast as you can. At least, "how to install the script" and using localhost server (ie wamp / easyphp).

    html is static and lack of interactive,
    php is programing. but need html to display the page on your browser.
    THIS BASIC THING MUST BE UNDERSTAND FIRST! ( html , php, mysql, localhost etc).

    Else.. it's just your another waste time dream.... understood?

    mysticmind just stuff some money inside ur pocket

    i use to build up a site in my university intranet last time. For the sake of learning as well as interest. Seriously u can learn a lot of things when u get ur hands dirty on it.

    HTML really is just basic things, the core lies in PHP/MYSQL. and one more advice to u, try not to use microsoft tools for designing webpages. It's evil!

    As I know, as long as you're using php supported webserver, it should be working. If there's database error, mean you have missed to change the configuration from sample's ip to your personal ip. That's why it's telling you that u're failed to connect ur database with your shoutbox. Usually, if u take it from example, u can check the configuration at config.inc.php or something name config...change your personal username and password, and remember..change the dir. of your database location, usually shoutbox is save their database into notepad (e.g. shout.txt) to work as their database in stead of using complex 1 (mysql database).

    This is the only way I can tell as I'm not so sure where's da real error there.

    Another clue, if the shoutbox that you're using is using mysql database to record all the messages. then probably u have missed out the step to change the database connect with ur php shoutbox. it known as mysql_connect..hard to explain it all..but if u see any .db files, then i suggest you to change a simple shoutbox (search in website) as you're now totally blank with programming..


    Good Luck,

    where r u studying?

    LoL, then you're my junior..and I expected you're from uniten as well, that's why I asked you. It's because I saw all the stuff webserver softwares, intranet usage and everything that u use is all shared and used by uniten students who use create own webserver website. then definately, that's for your own interest, lecturer never ask for this type of project. Maybe does, but not now cause should be holidays now? haha..

    actually as your problem now is shoutbox, it's actually not related with the http file server, limit and speed. It's just some configuration problem in the shoutbox itself..If you set it right, no matter wat type of webserver you used, abyss, xampp, easyphp, networkactive..all are useable. But at your level now, I suggest u use networkactive as it's easiest but it definately work well, guess u know this as well from the aibob forum..

    actually as other webmaster said, they're actually helpless in your case, that's because most of them manage to create their own application e.g. shoutbox instead of using other ppl's, so they might helpless to u as they never use what we usually use in uniten.
