Using the Joomla Database... Print

jPFChat now uses the Joomla MySQL database to handle all chat caching.  The phpFreeChat script is written to use a file based cache as a default.   This caused several problems on some installations... based on file system permission settings and whether php had been configured in a specific (but common) manner.  

All those potential issues are now a thing of the past.   Using the Joomla MySQL database as a chat cache eliminates all the file handling issues entirely.  And... on every system we've tested it on, the chat operates faster and more reliably this way as well.

phpFreeChat includes a MySQL "container" that we've taken advantage of in this release.   The jPFChat script automatically accesses the appropriate details to allow the chat script to access the database.   The appropriate database tables are built during the initial installation of the jPFChat script.

So... register now and give it a try.  It's the best jPFChat ever!
