Hi all, I am hoping someone can provide me with some assistance are a very frustrating problem.
I am a beginner with php and modified a Chat script (taken from here: http://www.sanwebe.com/2013/04/creating-shout-box-facebook-style) to allow multilingual chat (via the Google translate API).
My modification was working very nicely. Then my system went down (Running Linux Mint 17 x64). After reinstall the OS the script didn’t work, nor does the original unmodified chat script (without the translation modification). It will no longer pass any text (all project files are utf-8) in any character set other than the system locale (ZA-en).
An entry is inserted into the Mysql database, but is is just a single comma.
I am thinking that the original environment either had a dependency installed that the current one doesn’t (and the only own I can think of is HTML_quickforms2 from PEAR ). Or a difference in the Apache configuration (again not much was modified there other than enabling open_short_tag).
Any insight/ assistance in figuring out what is going on will be greatly appreciated.
