It also depends if your on a dedicated server or shared with many other sites. On a shared server your sites performance is directly affected by other sites that are on the server and how much system resources they use. Looks like your site just using a tiny bit more is throwing the performance off.

If I delete some of the chatbox entires, does it delete them from everyones view or just mine as the admin? Also if it holds 100 messages at default or whatever number it is, does that mean it will be full and not work, or does it drop the last post and cylces?

I am just trying to grow my forums and wonder if this mod is not good for a bunch of users at one time?

Deleted messages are deleted for everyone.

You can not limit by number of messages, but time period.
Messages older than X hours are automatically deleted.

Here is an error that I am getting ... I am receiving this via email from vBulletin (site) ....

What I have figured out is that it is the Smiley Box that is built into the Chatbox ... I disabled the Smileys and have not received an error from vBulletin.

Database error in vBulletin :

mysql_connect() [<a
href='function.mysql-connect'>function.mysql-connect</a>]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) /home/stangsgo/public_html/forums/includes/class_core.php on line 311

What's the CPU and how much memory does it have? Just because the hard drive is big and you have unlimited bandwidth doesnt mean your site will run fast. Is it a server level processor? or desktop level?

First of all, thx for this great hack.
Is it possible to show the "Chatbox Full"-Content on a new vBadvanced page?
I use it as a module now, but it does not show the same content like online users.
I have 3 Pages (portal, forum & chat) with the same Ads in the left collum and the content in the center collum, so I don't want to link to misc.php because my ads are not shown.
I need something like index.php?pageid=chat and this should show the same content as misc.php?do=cchat.
I did a workaround with an iframe for now but I don't like this solution.
