Publishing PHP pages on Shiny server? (crossposted from Shiny Google group)

Is it possible to publish PHP pages using Shiny server (open source version)? We are using Shiny server to set up a an e-journal of visualizations (, and have web pages for the journal and for Shiny dashboards, all residing on the Shiny server. The journal pages are all HTML pages, but we'd like to use server side scripting (PHP and server side includes) with a mySQL database to generate some of the content on the journal pages. Is this possible, or would it be more feasible to host the journal pages on a separate (non-Shiny) server that has server-side scripting enabled?


Well, host them on the same server but have HTML/ PHP pages with Shiny applications embedded on them as iframes. Does that work for you?
