How to Log in to BlaB! AX

In this article:

There are many support methods available today. You’re likely familiar with phone, email, live chat, social media, and forum support. We use all of these. But many smaller companies and community-supported open source initiatives prefer forums and external internet relay chat (IRC) networks such as Freenode. IRC facilitates a community aspect with developers and users with instant support (when available). We’ve covered how to use such IRC networks with Kiwi IRC on your website.

For those who prefer to host their own data, there’s BlaB! AX – easily installable via Softaculous Instant Installer. This free group chat system uses AJAX and MySQL to manage hosted IRC rooms.

Below we cover how to log in to a BlaB! network and general options.
