A daemon is a program that runs all the time in the background. In this case it's a PHP script, listening to a particular port on your server, accepting and giving out chat information.

If you intend to use the chat activity a lot, then you should consider using a chat server daemon to reduce server load.


1) Admin -> Config -> Modules -> Chat -> Settings

2) Set the method to "sockets" and set up the ports etc

3) Start the server like this (from the Unix command line):

  cd moodle/mod/chat
  php chatd.php --start &

4) Go to a chat room in Moodle and open it as normal.
