ARSC Really Simple Chat

ARSC Really Simple Chat is a Web chat system that uses PHP and MySQL. It works with every browser in existence, even text-based ones, and it uses the server push technique or, if possible, its own socket server. It is very simple to install and use ARSC. It includes some important features, such as operators, kick-ing, whispering, and more. Multiple rooms and different languages are available. To run ARSC on your site, you need a Web server that understands PHP, and can connect to a MySQL database.

Recent releases

  •  02 May 2006 09:51

    Release Notes: A bug that broke the installation routine was fixed.

    •  22 Nov 2005 19:39

      Release Notes: A dedicated ping frame was added, moving the ping functionality away from the userlist. A 'flag as idle' functionality, which flags users that would have been kicked in former versions as idle, was added, allowing for other users to log in as the idle user if they have the same IP or, if it is a registered user, know the user's password. The user is de-flagged if he sends in a ping again. The socket server was removed; it will be reintroduced once it is stable.

      •  26 Jul 2005 06:53

        Release Notes: Stability and performance were notably improved. A basic refresh version without any JavaScript was added. A version which utilizes XMLHttpRequest was added. Greek, Spanish, French, Portuguese (Brazil), Jugoslovenski, and Dutch language files were added. Two non-critical bugs were fixed. A basic set of documentation was added.

        •  13 Apr 2005 14:53

          Release Notes: The auto-logout functionality was dropped from the browser_push version in order to improve stability. A bug that prevented httpd processes from correctly terminating was fixed. The database tables were switched from microtime (bigint) values to primary key for message index.

          •  21 Feb 2005 16:13

            Release Notes: A script was added to avoid the case where the session ID of a user is sent within the referer when clicking on an external URL posted into the chatroom. This is done in order to avoid session theft. Rooms may now contain special characters, and a faster and more compatible color picker was added. A Bosnian language file is now included, and the browser_push version uses less bandwith. Registered users can now re-login quickly, even if their former session did not time out correctly.

            Thanks for this one, but please file a bug report, don't write it into the freshmeat comments.

            V3 not Unicode friendly
            V2.x accepts UTF-8 and other double byte input without problems, V3 displays these characters as escaped HTML chars.

            You are right. The fix/workaround from that thread does not work. The chat goes crazy and repeats the same statement you type in the window..over and over and over and over. Anyway am happy with my linux version. Dont know what to say to my sisters club who like the chat but cannot even pronounce linux :) Good work so far Manuel :) Thanks. Guess I have to hit the php books :)

            there is a workaround, it is described here:
            http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=624891&forum_id=102858

            but i don't know if it will work even with this fixed - ARSC was never intended for nor tested on Windows systems.

            arsc simple chat
            Works beautifully in linux/unix. But does not work at all in windows. My opinion:
            Unless there is a fix or work around to the error code (warning rand() invalid range)you get when you try to use it in windows, you can safely say the chat is not for use in Windows.
            I have searched the sourceforge forum for a workaround/fix and coudnt find it.
