Hi,

I have the following question: Is it possible to get PHP running on a Coldfusion server? I have a forum in php which I want to be displayed on the webpage running under Coldfusion.

Is this possible? What would be the best solution?

Regards,

Kabbi Thkek

I have had success running PHP and Coldfusion together with Apache on Windows and Linux.

Start with installing Apache then install Coldfusion to use apache as the webserver, then install PHP

Or PHP then Coldfusion...

It'll work. :)

Of course, you can run ColdFusion and PHP at the same time in one machine.
I am running both of them on Windows and with IIS.

But I think kabbi~'s question is, in fact, this is my question, too, can we
run a PHP page embedded inside a ColdFusion page? The only way I can think
of is using frames, but frames can be tricky in many cases, so I want to
avoid it if possible. Is there a better way to do this?

Well no, not inside a page. You can not embed PHP code in a CFM file
and expect the ColdFusion engine to know what to do with it, anymore
then you can embed CFML code in a PHP file and expect the PHP engine to
understand it.

You can cross process with frames, as mentioned. Since then each
request will be sent to the appropiate engine by the web server.

You can also use web services to pass information from one app server to
the other.

With ColdFusion you could use the CFHTTP tag to call a PHP page and
process what it returns. I'm sure PHP has similar functionality.

Those are the three ideas I could come up with.
