MyChat Server
[-] (05.23.2018) function for automatic deleting of old files works incorrectly. Fixed.

In the server settings, in the "Settings" -> "Service" section, only the item "Automatically delete old files older than..." was left. The item for deleting images was deleted because in the program new versions all these files are stored in the same folder.

The cleaning algorithm was configured for deleting image files only. The cleaning system didn't touch other files. Fixed.

MyChat Server
[-] (05.30.2018) errors when changing the settings for storing user files and server backups. Fixed.

We made control over the assignment of network folders (\\ ...). The server tries to create a folder (that an administrator specifies in the settings), if it does not exist. If the path is invalid or you can't create a folder, a configuration returns to the default value and a corresponding error is displayed on the server administrator panel.

Fixed errors associated with uploading and downloading files, images, and ZIP archives of server database backup copies after changing default paths.

MyChat Server
[*] (05.31.2018) accelerated work of JSONArrayGetDateTime and JSONGetDateTime functions.

Turned out, that if you call this functions in "heavy" cycles and transfer invalid data to them, then functions start working slower as usual because of the non-optimal way of processing incoming data errors.

In the end, the script will work slower than it was expected.

MyChat Server
[+] (06.05.2018) keys for command lines /port and /webport to specify ports for MyChat network core and WEB server manually;

These ports are used in a case when it's impossible to run "zero" server because ports are busy with other network software.
