    Default Z-push - reuse zimbra's apache ?

    Hello,
    I'm about (to try) to install z-push on my zimbra machine.
    z-push requires an apache webserver.

    It seems my zimbra install already sports an apache webserver listening on port 7780 besides jetty.
    I'm not zimbra savvy enough to know what it's for.
    It serves up an "It works" page.

    Code:
    lrwxrwxrwx   1 root   root      24 2010-10-02 11:55 httpd -> /opt/zimbra/httpd-2.2.15
    drwxr-xr-x  15 root   root    4096 2010-10-02 11:55 httpd-2.2.15
    lrwxrwxrwx   1 root   root      27 2010-10-02 11:55 jetty -> /opt/zimbra/jetty-6.1.22.z6
    drwxr-xr-x  11 root   root    4096 2010-10-02 11:55 jetty-6.1.22.z6
    drwxr-xr-x   5 root   root    4096 2010-10-02 11:30 jetty-6.1.5
    lrwxrwxrwx   1 root   root      27 2010-10-02 11:55 mailboxd -> /opt/zimbra/jetty-6.1.22.z6
    Can I reuse that apache server or should I install an seperate instance regardless?
    If the latter, would they interfere with one another?

    I read though the (long) Zimbra contact backend for Z-push post, but haven't found a clue.

    best regards

    You should not use any of the Zimbra services for any other purpose, modifications are not likely to survive any Zimbra upgrades and may impact performance and/or functionality.

    Ok, understood. I take it then that a second apache install will not interfere with the zimbra one.

    If you assign a different port (not 80 or 443)
    8080 is a typical alternative for HTTP

    Personally I use a separate Apache instatallation on another server, the overhead is very low and it only needs to be able to see the ZWC port on the mail server so it could even go onto shared hosting or other web server.

    My userbase is very small - 6 (even naming it userbase is overkill)
    so I'll use the same server (i haven't found the time yet)
    The shared hosting suggestion is interesting. Perhaps bluehost has already done the work for me
