The following scripts will create an in-world meeting chat logger that logs the meeting to a PHP webserver. People can view the meeting chat in realtime from a web page. You can also download the entire meeting log in text format with html so it could be pasted right into a wiki or CMS that supports html.

To use this you will need a webserver running PHP. There are two scripts that need to reside on the webserver and an LSL script for in-world. The chat is picked up by the LSL in-world script and posted to the PHP script, that writes the log to a text file. The html file runs an Ajax script to read the text file and print out via a browser the realtime chat without the need to refresh the page. The PHP and Ajax are highly modified scripts I found on the internet, the original credits are in the scripts.

- Spam keywords - this will drop an entire line if certain keywords are detected
- Entire lines of spam - this will drop an entire line if the enitre line is exactly the same
- Security key - the LSL and PHP have a key that has to be the same, if the key is not the same, no chat is logged. This is to stop people maliciously posting directly to the PHP script
- You can start/stop and clear the log from in-world
- The reader supports autoscroll and you can download the full meeting text (with html) from the reader page

- Create a folder on your webserver, something like 'meetinglog'
- Set permissions on that folder to allow your web server process/user to create, write and modify files in that folder only
- Drop the files meetinglogger.php and meetinglog.html into your folder
- Drop the LSL script into a prim in-world.
- Open both the LSL and PHP scripts and set the key to something else, or just leave it at default 1234 for testing
- Set both of the URLs in the LSL script to point at both the scripts on the webserver, such as: ... logger.php and
- Open the meetinglog.html in your web browser. At first it will say the text file can not be found, this is normal.
- Touch the prim with the LSL script and turn on the logging
- Say something and this should create the text file and start logging. You should see the output on the browser.

I have this setup on my webserver, so for a demo drop the LSL script into a prim (unchanged) and goto ... nglog.html to see the demo.

Enjoy! :)
