Websockets Apache Server compatibility in HTML5

When an app is to be developed that displays new data whenever it is stored in a folder through XML, we use websockets apache server.

Mod_websocket or php websocket can be used.we can also use self-hosted realtime web technology for realtime communication between server and client.

A hosted realtime web solutions and realtime push aspect of your application can be offloaded.

However, Apache server is not good in long-running persistant connections between server and client.

Best solution for this is:

  • While using Apache as application server we need to use second dedicated realtime webserver.
  • Self hosted realtime webserver can be used to handle many concurrent connections
  • A hosted service can be used along with Apache application server.
