Thanks for the advice guys.
Andrew, your title on here ways DreamHost code monkey.
I take it, you're affiliated with Dreamhost?
What part of the documentation led you to believe its OK for dreamhost?
Thanks for the advice on AJAX chat, I use flashchat now, which cannot be housed on dreamhost servers. Im looking to switch hosting companies, as my current server admin will not upgrade past php4.4.4.
I took a look at the AJAX chat, it looks nice, but I want to get away from the chat room feel.
I also didnt have much luck with flashchat in the 3 years ive used it.
People like forums, I guess.
So, I want to have an instant mode of communication interweaved with the forum software, which is popular far beyond the dedicated chat.
For whatever reason, flashchat wasnt successful, I think people like forums, not chat "rooms".
Andrew, is there anything else I can do to ensure this thing (cometchat) wont throw up red flags and suspend my account?[hr]
I got a response from the CometChat folks just a few minutes ago:
CometChat does not use any persistent processes. Due to privacy reasons, we cannot reveal customers using CometChat on Dreamhost. CometChat uses smart-polling i.e. it polls depending on user activity (between 3 to 12 seconds).
