Fourthly, integrate your chat with Moodle user database, after doing that, users can auto-login your Moodle chat, it means they won't have to enter their accounts again. If you choose running mode (1) or mode (2), you need to set Auth-URL by following the instructions below.

1. Log in the Chat Admin Panel.

2. Server Settings -> Integration ->DataBase -> SELECT: URL -> edit.

3. Change URL to
http://<Moodle installed directory>/mod/flashchat/login_chat.php?username=%username%&password=%password%

4. Press OK to save your setting.

5. Restart chat server at Server Management -> Restart.

The following image describes how auth-URL integration works.

The Auth-URL application will perform as the communicating medium of the chat server and the database, i.e.: in fact, when a user logs on a chat server, the server won't connect to the user database directly, instead, it will send the username and password to the Auth- URL. Then the Auth- URL requests the database to authenticate the user. Finally, the Auth- URL will return the feedback to the chat server in a predefined way, whether approved or declined.

Integration done, enjoy your chat.
