I’ve just made an account with DreamHost recently and I am loving it so far. The features and service are awsome. But I am having a bit of a problem. Prior to making an account on DH I purchased a Flash Chat software, to add some more life to my website alongside the forums.
I noticed that it was under heavy strain when many users go on at once. This seemed to be a bit of a hassle. The author of this software implemented a unique script within the software itself. But this ‘script’ or whatever requires a certain feature to be open and available within PHP, yet that feature is not on DreamHost’s default PHP settings.
I noticed that the only way to get it available to me was to ‘compile’ it myself. That’s where I am severely having problems. I have been looking for help on it for some time now and I have found nothing. I keep trying to follow the Wiki’s instructions but I really don’t know that much about SSH and all that. And I was only bearly capable of logging into the server in SSH mode.
I would give anything if someone could offer a little advice as to what I am supposed to do to install it or get it working.
Thanks in advance…
