    I really don't know how to word this to search for it so I will explain it here.

    I would like to know if it is possible to have gaim run on my website 24/7 so that I can check the log or whatever so that I don't miss any messages when my computer is off.

    If you could point me in the right direction or just tell me if it is possible it would help alot, thanks.

      No, you can not run Gaim from your website.

        No necessarily gaim itself. But have my website somehow intercept messages while I am offline, and save the logs so that I can read them.

      I'm still a little uncertain of what exactly you're looking for, but depending on what type of system you're running on you could setup a schedule/cron job to copy the gaim log files to a readable directory from the web (assuming your webserver is on the same machine as gaim) or ftp them somewhere.

        The only problem is that he does not run his computer all the time...

        Why can't you leave your machine on? Are you on dial-up? Otherwise... leave your computer on if you want to receive messages over night.

      I would like all my messages to be captured on a website, so that then i can go read the logs to get my messages.

      And by captured on the website, I mean not having to run gaim on my PC. But instead something on the website that will intercept the messages sent to me.

      I could also get my messages from any computer with access to the internet.

      If you own the Server your website is on, then Install Gaim on your Server, but if you don't own it and do not have shell/terminal access then what your wanting to do is NOT POSSIBLE.

      Gaim is a Desktop Application not a Server Application
