Hi Everyone,

I'm still wondering how to get PHP working on port 8443, so that I can run
PHP and MYSQL alongside Galene. (e.g.

Is this query beyond the scope of this group, and more of an Apache
configuration issue?

As you can tell there is a gap in my knowledge of this kind of architecture
but from my testing, I definitely cannot have a host php page running on
port 80 that attempts to create the websocket for Galene over on port 8443
via javascript. That definitely doesn't work, and therefore, for a
successful Galene connection, I need to use an https uri request on port
8443, before the javascript makes the wss connection.
This means therefore, for my design to work, I need PHP to run on port 8443.
Any ideas how to get PHP running on port 8443?

Hopefully we can forge an answer although I realise this is slightly
leftfield to the amazing development of core Galène that you're all working

Best wishes and kind regards,
