Cross-domain configuration

If you want to use the same chat installation on multiple domains, your server should allow cross-origin requests. To enable cross-origin requests on your server follow the steps below:

Cross-domain configuration via server

For Apache servers — Edit the .htaccess file of the domain where the software is installed and enter the code <IfModule mod_headers.c>Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"</IfModule> or <IfModule mod_headers.c="">header('Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *');</IfModule> at the very top of the file. To make it works you need to have at least AllowOverride +FileInfo or AllowOverride All in the Apache config.

For nginx servers — Edit the file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf of the domain where the plugin is installed and enter the code add_header Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"; at the very top of the file. If you’re using Plesk go to Domains > > Apache and nginx settings > Additional nginx directives and insert
add_header 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' '*';.

Server down

If your server and/or website goes down or suddenly stops working after a few minutes of chat usage, the issue could be related to your server’s Firewall. This usually happens as a result of an IP Address Banning (Fail2Ban) or Web Application Firewall (ModSecurity) settings. The multiple AJAX requests from the chat to the database are recognized as a “server attack” and so your server places a temporary block on your IP address. This issue should only affect you and/or your developers; visitors/users should not be affected. To confirm whether or not this is the issue, use a VPN service like Hotspot Shield. When the server goes down, activate the VPN to change your IP and try accessing your website again. If the website works normally, the issue is confirmed. To solve it temporarily disable fail2ban or contact your hosting support for additional support.

Disable chat via JS

Enter the code var SB_DISABLED = true; into a page to prevent the chat from loading.
