    No sockets extension. How to websocket???

    The server i'm currently working on does not have socket extension and it can't be installed.
    Is there a way to use websockets with. e.g. python or other third party stuff?

    Again: extensions CAN'T BE INSTALLED
    I never ever read PM's unless it's an job offer. So save your time for regular questions in the forum. I never ever take friendship offers. We are not on facebook here.(It's stupid on facebook too). Friendship? Do i know you? Did we ever had a beer together? Thats really stupid. Sorry.

    If your server does not support websockets, than your out of luck. But, are you really wanting to send info to users yourself? If yes, is there a reason you can't just use AJAX? Node.js works with Socket.IO, does your server support Node?

    Tell us how you plan to use this. There maybe other ways of doing it.

    Sounds like time to find better hosting.
