Starting Monitoring Plugin

First, IM Gateway plugin is outdated. You should use Kraken instead of it. Second, what database do you use? Is it the embedded one?

He did state it was the embedded DB.

Sorry. Dont know how did i miss that

So, the first option is to try Kraken. And if that doesnt help, then maybe go with a fresh installation and install Kraken first. Maybe one of the other plugins has messed up the database, though this would be weird.

Hi Wroot and Todd,

helped a lot .

uninstalled the IM gateway plugin and installed Kraken

worked like a charm


for the quick replay
