Hi eazydoesit,

 

It requires server configuration to be able to use this app. phpFox provided 3 options:

+ NodeJS and using phpFox IM hosting service:  You can order our IM Hosting service within AdminCP > Apps > Installed > Instant Messaging > Instant Messaging tab. The monthly fee is $5 per month.

+ NodeJS setting up on your server: please follow this guide https://docs.phpfox.com/display/FOX4MAN/Server+Setup+for+IM+with+NodeJS

+ Firebase: using Google firebase service: https://docs.phpfox.com/display/FOX4MAN/Server+Setup+for+IM+with+Google+Firebase

Regards,

Hannah

ok thank you, i figured out the problem. Somehow ( not sure how ) but the phpfox host url for their im services ended up in the field for it even though its turned off. I turned it on, removed the url and shut it back off and now my members can send each other site messages now. Thanks

I'm trying to do the same thing... I don't need to use their node.js I have my own but can't remove/replace their url
