If you are running under HTTPS, you'll have to mention the path of your certificate and your key in the config.json file !
First, install the addon by uploading the files on your FTP and install the XML file. Once you have done this, go into the addon options and put the Encryption Key and the Initialization Vector in the app.js file (which is a server file) at the line 61 & 62, so it makes Socket.IO communications secure. These values must NOT be modified, shared or exposed to public.
You should have something like this:
var key = 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX', // YOUR ENCRYPTION KEY HERE iv = 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'; // YOUR VECTOR HERE
To achieve this, run this command on your SSH terminal:
npm install forever -g
forever start app.js
To integrate a chatbox anywhere, just add this line in the template you want:
<xen:hook name="chatbox_widget" />
