File sharing


Enable secure file sharing

In Cloud Chat 3 - Version 2.0 we have build in secure file sharing and you should use it! In your include/db.php file you can define the path to the folder where all files from the clients will be stored. This folder should be outside of the web root or on a different server.

define('CLIENT_UPLOAD_DIR', 'your_upload_folder');

You should also define any unique key for following entries to encrypt any communication between the front end and file system.

define('JAK_FILE_SECRET_KEY', 'file_secret_key');
define('JAK_FILE_SECRET_IV', 'file_secret_iv');

For more information check our FAQ article about secure uploading.

Cron Job

Run a cron job to following PHP file every 5 to 10 minutes. This file will send welcome emails to new registered clients and payment reminders one week before access expires.

web/process/cron.php

For all chat installations (single operator) there is also a cron job, it will update the client, remove clients marked as deleted plus all the data from this client, remove chat, contact and online user history older then certain days (by standard 30 days, can be changed in the include/cron.php file on line 152), it will also optimise all sql tables. For each single operator location you install you will need to setup the cron job in your control panel running once a day.
