I copied this from the settings page regarding chat server daemon but I haven't deleted it because I dont know where it refers to and it must be very important ! --Mary Cooch 01:55, 15 November 2011 (WST)
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.
