Hi, are you saying you have two different domains and one of them points to another? If so check the addon domains section of your Cpanel or contact your hosting company.
By the way, how is the issue related to .htaccess file? Did you edit .htaccess files? If yes, can we see its content?

You should check domain settings. I guess chat domain is not pointed to the folder where the chat is installed. Point your domains to proper folders and everything should work properly.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/chatfolder/

assuming you have yoursite.com as oxwall install and yoursite.com/chatfolder for chat.

I do a similar thing for wordpress on my site.
My oxwall is on the root of www, mysite.com and my wordpress lives mysite.com/blog and I added the rewritecond in my .htaccess in the root of www

(Which is a close one cos I just noticed oxwall does a mysite.com/blogs/ which could be problematic!  I must look into vhosts!)
