I would like to add a PHP chat application to my website so I can chat with people in real time. I would like to use PHP and jQuery to create this. Is this one of the simplest software's available? Or would I be better suited to something else?
How would I create a simple php chat application?
You are definitely on the right track by choosing PHP and jQuery to create the chat application to be integrated on your website.
PHP will be used for server side interaction and jQuery will be used to fetch the latest messages with refreshing the chat window itself.
I am providing with some helpful resources that will help you get started –
Sample application with code snippet to develop a basic chat application – It uses HTML, CSS, PHP, SQL
Building a jQuery/PHP Powered Chat Room – It uses HTML, CSS, PHP, jQuery and file store based backend
You can combine the best of both resources to develop your own application.
