Your second question answers your first.

Zope's ZServer does indeed serve HTTP, but it only serves Zope objects.
Apache, on the other hand, allows you to serve much more, including PHP. You
can use Apache to integrate the two, there's a How-To on Zope.org that
explains how to do this, IIRC.

Basically, reasons for using Apache are:

- Using SSL (but there is an addon product for ZServer that covers this as
  well)

- Integration with other content, like static files and, in your case PHP.

- Virtual servers, competing for ip addresses or ports.

- Serving virtual servers out of Zope.

This is not a complete list, but these are the most important reasons.

On the other hand, using Apache introduces another level of complexity to your
setup, introducing a speed bump, a potential source of misconfiguration
problems, and another link in the chain that could break.

Take a look at a HOW-TO I wrote for one way to serve PHP from within Zope:

Lucas,

If you don't know of a reason you would need Apache, you don't need it.
:-)

Zope does not directly handle PHP tags.

Hi 
Have just installed Zope under Win2K and it works fine - I see a lot of
people mention using Apache to server Zope, but isnt Zope a webserver
itself? I can browse to http://server:8080/ and view Zope pages, so why
would I need Apache?
Also, How do I set Zope up so it handles PHP tags? 
thanks in advance 
Lucas Young

Title: Newbie: Zope a webserver? Serving PHP and Perl



Your second question almost answers the first. You can use 
Zope either with or without Apache. One way to handle existing PHP sites is to 
put Apache in front of Zope. Then add configuration parameters to Apache to make 
it examine the URLs of requests. If the URL is for PHP pages, then 
handlethe request in Apache/PHP. If the URL is for Zope pages, pass it 
over to Zope. That way you don't even have to think about making Zope do PHP. 


As for setting "Zope up so it handles PHP tags", I'll let 
someone else answer that, 'cause I don't know for sure whether it can even be 
done.
