Private chat room

Hey
I've been asked to place a chat room on my site (which I want to keep private if possible), but I don't really want to use a third party server.

I've looked at PHP Open chat which looks ok ,but I'm unsure really on how to set it up, PHP and mySQL databases are still very new to me.

Can anyone help, or suggest another way of adding a chat room to the site?

Thanks
Matt

I couldn't even get the php open chat website to load so can't comment on that.
I have just installed PJIRC on a website, installation is as easy as uploading a bunch of files but you do have to find an IRC server to point it at..

Hi Reliant,
If like me you are unsure about php scripts etc, why not use a perl cgi-script chat-room?
If you go to a site like the CGI Resource Index you can currently choose from 35 chat room scripts most of which are free to download - most also come with easy configuration help files.
Here's the url of the site if you're interested:

http://www.cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Chat/

Hope this helps

Tony
