WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I have a website written in mostly PHP, currently using an Apache server. I would like to integrate a chat system, and I would like to use Python + Tornado server. Is it possible to do this, i.e., keep most of the basic functionality that I have already written in PHP/Apache, while implementing Tornado for the actual "chat" aspect of the website? Or, is this not possible? Will I need a seperate IP address or...what? I'm not quite sure how the servers are configured for Webfaction, and moreover, how I should implement something like this, given any constraints or limitations of Webfaction.

Any insight and help is greatly appreciated!

This is possible. You would build the Tornado server from source. Than once its built you would request we open the port, we can do this with a support ticket.
