Ok a little follow up on this serious issue:

I tried to unistall this product then as ever delete the files and this has had massive implications, which can be seen from the email direct from host about the server........

Earlier this evening Bluecore10 crashed without reason. At this point we dispatched our on site tech's who found the server offline. They attempted a reboot to find that the system has corrupted both the hard drives in our systems running under Raid1.

This is extreamly rare, but at this time they are advising the system can't be booted up in its current state. As such we have taken the decition to setup a new server and restore all web sites to this new server from our backups. We understand that this is not an ideal situation but was our only option.

With this option we will try to restore every web site as quickly as possible but at this time we can't give an ETA. We will though be arranging for a specialist to take a look at this server and see if data on the hard drives can be recovered.

Please accept our applogies and we will work to resolve this ASAP!
Now this happened "exactly" when i was carrying out the deletion and uninstall......... coincidence - im cynical as are the host. The whole issue is serious and i would go as far as to say this needs ceasing asap. With some information along with it.

I am sad to say my forum is around 5 years old so not a baby and wether i recover this is debateble..................

We are seeking all the information possible with a view to litigation if this is due to negligence or some other actions involved

Hello,

This mod has been tested in vB4.x.
Since its release, several websites are using it without any problem.

"Call to undefined function" error seems to be due to install/uninstall the mod without following the README file steps.

@nacaruncr, @basilrath:
The mod hasn't the power to cause disk corruption / hacks / ... to your servers.
Php code is clear, simple and follow all the vB code standards.
Javascript code is executed in the user browser.

In my honest opinion:
@nacaruncr server was hacked before install this mod.
@basilrath is a sad and unrelated coincidence.

Anyway, the source code is there, anyone with knowledge can check it.
As the moderator said: "confirm your allegation with specific code in question or consider editing your post to remove this "warning".

@nacaruncr: I expect an apology from you because of your insults towards me.

@DNCL, demo chat is working. It seems some incompatibility in your computer: are you using a proxy ?

Tried it on 2 connections one with proxy and one without, same.
Also tried it on Windows and on Mac, after keeping the window open for a while on the Mac machine i've noticed that the firefox reporting a flash player crash.
Also on a windows machine that has IDM (Internet Download Manager) installed, once the demo site loads the download manager popsup asking me if i want to download many files like mp3 sounds.

Chat theme contains gif and mp3 files, for the chat emoticons and sound notification.

Currently, Bowob has some problems when using some proxys. This is an unusual problem, but they are working on solve it.

OK... Today I installed this chat, configured it, it worked, then I uninstalled it, and EVERYTHING WAS FINE.

While I don't use the term "impossible" lightly it would pretty much be impossible for this mod to ever cause the problems reported by basilrath above. It sounds like his ISP was having hardware issues completely unrelated to this mod.

I installed it and uninstalled it without issue.

I followed the install instructions.

At first I also was getting just the "loading" message in the chat bar... I think this is the issue- when setting up the account it asks for your website URL, which I put in as www.juot.net. However chat isn't installed in my forum root. After I setup the account I hit the "Settings" option and there was a new option not presented during the initial account setup- Modification address. This needs to be the URL to your /forums/ directory (or wherever you installed the bowob.php file.)

Once I updated this setting after a few minutes everything started working fine. (It tells you it may take up to 15 minutes for the change to take effect.)

OK so once it was all working I tried to uninstall.

I went to Admin CP -> product manager -> and uninstalled the product.

Then via FTP I deleted the 3 files I uploaded bowob.php, and the two in the includes folder.

Again everything was fine- my server is fine, and everything still works.

I do not have a need for a vBulletin 4.x chat program but I can confirm if you follow the instructions this mod will install and uninstall without issue.

I tried loading this and only get the "chat loading" text and nothing is clickable.

Our company firewall blocks the bowob site so I am guessing that may be the issue.

Request denied by WatchGuard HTTP proxy.
Reason: one or more categories denied helper='WebBlocker.1' details='Chat'

Looked at demo....

Seems to work fine and interface is nice, but it's way too expensive for a small board like ours ....

Thanks anyway ...

Regards,
Doug
