Chat server with users

Tue Aug 12, 2014 9:49 am

Hey everybody

Does anyone know a easy way to turn the raspberry pi into a chat server that runs on a web page. I would like it to be like the facebook messaging service with having users and some way of creating profiles and storing them. I only want this to be run on a local network so this should make it easier.

i have also found software called OMessenger i would like it to be similar to this but runs on a webpage instead

Thanks
Ian

Run the pi as a webserver then use a simple php applet or something similar as the index containing chat.
