I am having a very weird issue with the Messages app.

 

It will not keep history of the chat after I close down the application and open it up again. This is what I have done so far.

 

- Deleted relevant .plists, Saved Application State folder, Repaired Permissions, Re-installed 10.8.4 Combo Update, deleted the app from terminal, re-installed the app using Pacifist from the downloaded 10.8 app from the App Store, and also updated the "Pacified" Messages app, using Pacifist again.

 

Still any messages will get deleted after i start up.

 

In ~/Library/Messages/Archive I can find all of the messages normally.

    HI,

     

    So you have open chats or iMessages conversation in the main Message Window (The Tabbed chat and Interface window).

     

    You then shut down the App (either for end of day or as a test)

    The open chats are left "On display" as it were.

     

    However on restarting the app the Chats or conversations are no longer showing.

     

    In a Finder window navigate to that Archive folder.

    Then go to the View Menu > Show Path bar

    Now do a Get Info an the dated Folder for the last saved Chat  (Highlight the folder and then use CMD + i keys)

    Use the Path bar and right click the Archive folder itself, the Messages folder and the Library folder in turn and select Get Info in the Pop up menu.

     

    In each Case do you have Read and Write Permissions ?

    If you highlight your name then use the cogwheeel type icon does this say "Make yourshortname (Me) the owner" but is greyed out (As if already done as you do Own it) ?

     

    If you can "launch" them from there it would appear they are being written properly and that you have permission to Read them.

    Technically there is only your Drop box that has Write Only Permissions (and that is for other people to leave things in your Public folder.)

     

    Your Post implies rather than states that Messages > Preferences > Messages has the Save on Closing option set.

    So you have open chats or iMessages conversation in the main Message Window (The Tabbed chat and Interface window).

     

    You then shut down the App (either for end of day or as a test)

    The open chats are left "On display" as it were.

     

    However on restarting the app the Chats or conversations are no longer showing.

     

    This is the exact behavior.

     

    1. All folders in the tree ~/Library/Messages/Archive

     

    2. Make (me) as the owner is grayed out.

     

    3. Save History when conversations are closed is checked.

     

     

    I have done a re-installation of the OS during the weekend. Nothing changed. Still won't keep any history.

     

    BTW, Repair Disk Perms, gave me an ACL Error before the re-installation, but now it's going through the procedure like a hot knife through butter.

     

    This is really starting to boggle me. Is there a "logcat" i can run to see what is happening when im closing down Messages and re-opening it? Maybe it's getting an error or somthing.

    Sorry forgot to write the following.

     

    1. All folders in the tree ~/Library/Messages/Archive are read/write

    Hi,

     

    Did you check the onwnership of the containing folders ?

    I doubt these are an issue if the Saved items are in the Archive.

     

    Shut down Messages

    Open Terminal (Applications/Utilities)

    Copy and paste the bold text below in to Terminal.

     

    /Applications/Messages.app/Contents/MacOS/Messages -errorLogLevel 7

     

    This will launch Messages bit also create a Log in Terminal about what it is doing.

    There will be a long log created up to the point Buddy Lists log in.

    The Terminal Log will then pause just after some lines about the ComNAT  settings.

     

    You can use Messages like normal and more log will be created.  (the longest being for Video chat connections).

     

    Close Messages first.

    Copy Log in parts  (Split it up into the different actions such as Start up)

    Post here (you may want to annonomize  (Not sure I spelt that right and spellcheck is no help) it somewhat (put xxxx where your ID or a Buddy's ID appears) )

    Thanks for your help.

     

    Weird thing, the "Archive" folder was not under my ownership. Changed it, applied to enclosed items... No change. Still loses the history. Although the messages still get saved on their respective folders.

     

     

    Now in regards to the log, it stopped logging after a while for no apparent reason. Here is the output:

    I really cannot find anything relevant, it might be escaping my view though. Weird thing, is that it also deleted some of the chat history within the same instance of the started application. The Archive however contains the whole chatlog.

    When it starts up Messages cannnot see an Internet connection.

    As you can see it is trying to test on port 16393

    I would check this is allowed in your router.

    Normally outgoing requests like this are allowed Out.

    What you might be blocking is the return.

    In the 2 Hour section you have this

    The basic IP and Media Access Card numbers appear to show you are using both Ethernet and Wifi

     

    An IP starting with a 10 is on a LAN issued by a router somewhere.

    The fact you are listing in Messages that it can see two IPs is not good.  (in fact it is Bad).

    Messages needs to be on one IP and connected to the internet in a linear fashion.

    Double routers can also cause issues depending on set up.

     

    It's actually in the top log as well

    The Qucktime references is to the older method of setting the Streaming rate in a Preference Pane for Quicktime that used to be in System Preferences.

    The Bandwidth Limit effected this setting and is listed as the controlling factor.

    However it's not the issue about not finding Internet Speed.

     

    The earlier issues  lead to this pause

    The "weird" IP addresses, are issued by the router, which is normal.

     

    Something that I forgot to mention, is that Messages is used solely through Bonjour. I have no external or 3rd party accounts on it. So, even though I would completely understand the reason it might fail if I were communicating to the "outside" world, all messages are being sent through the same LAN.

     

    I am starting a new session through Terminal, after I have switched off Wi-Fi. Will come back with another wall-of-text later in the day.

  • apalaistras Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)

    Something I want to add that might be relevant.

     

    If i move the ~/Library/Messages folder to the desktop, and re-open Messages, it will create a new folder as expected, although the "Archive" folder inside will NOT have me as the owner at start, but after about 20 minutes it grayed out the option to make me as the owner on the Get Info.

     

    On Terminal the permissions seem to be OK, even when I do not appear to be the owner.

    HI,

     

    When you start up the Messages app it checks the Bandwidth (Internet Connection Speed) as you can see.

    It is retuning a 0/0 (nothing up and nothing down scenario) result.

     

    Although the Bonjour Text chat is only over the local LAN the app checks the speed over the internet.

    In fact as it uses the same Connection Process and Protocols it actually needs internet Access to do VIdeo chats.

     

    This log is using an older iChat 3 and 4 port

    I have bolded the Port listsing in some lines.

     

    It is actually testing against an Apple server

    I am sure this is the snatmap.mac.com server used to connect Audio Only, Video Chats and Screen Sharing connections.

     

    The app does not know that you are going to only be using Bonjour and is testing the ability of the whole app.

    Would this be the root cause of Messages not keeping the History? And if yes, why?

    I took a look at the console, and I keep getting the following message:

     

    Jul 19 14:15:37 xxxxxxxx-iMac-2.local Messages[568]: [Warning] Could not find transfer for guid: 65A05802-9858-46AC-BC44-7B6058336499

     

    When i quicklook the iChat.plist I dont see that GUID as one of the accounts. I downloaded PrefSetter, added it as one of the "AccountSortOrder", but still no change.

  • Ralph Johns (UK) Level 9 Level 9 (69,315 points)

    HI,

     

    On the Originating History issue this would not be the cause - or at least not directly.

     

    The various Logs suggests there might be something deeper that is an issue but is currently masked by the fact the app cannot complete a Speed test.

     

    The GUID does look like it fulfils the format for an Account of some sort  but as you say it is not one listed in the Logs at all.

    I can only see about 2 there I think it is.

    How many accounts do you have in Messages ?

    iMessages and Bonjour would get you two to start with. (count only those Logged in)

     

    AS you use Pacifist before and then updated the OS (with Combo version ?) to update the app I would suggest Downloading and Installing the Combo version of OS X 10.8.4 over what you have.

    This can provide a sort of "maintenance" to hard to track down problems.

     

    If this does not work I would use the Restore option and reinstall the whole OS and Apple Apps (it will be at the latest versions)

    That is correct. I have only 2 accounts on the Preference Pane, but only Bonjour is active.

     

    After using Pacifist and messing up with messages as much as i could, I resulted in doing a reinstallation through an old 10.8.2 installation usb I had. My Internet connectivity is quite crappy, so I have kept the AppStore app from when I originally purchased it so that I dont have to wait for ~4 hours whenever i need to re-install.

     

    After the Reinstallation, the issue persisted, so I downloaded the 10.8.4 combo update. But still the issue persists.

     

    Unfortunately a complete erase and re-installation is out of the question, due to licenced applications that I will have to re-download, which is a complete PITA to say the least, especially when the reason for an Erase is such a minor one as this is
