The Kerio web mail services operate using their own web server, including a recent version of php 4.x. Is it safe to use this web server to add some local supporting webpages on the same host (e.g. by adding php scripts into new subdirectories of the webmail directory), or does this risk death, destruction and loss of all suppport from Kerio?

I know that we can run a second web server on the same machine by managing port assignments, but the small scale of the job of interests leads me towards using Kerio;s own server if possible.

This would seem to be true, yes. I know I would have this policy if I were Kerio Twisted Evil Their product is not tested to 'share' the internal web server and PHP-engine with 'foreign' code.

You'd better call Kerio about this (if you want to maintain their official support).

I will note that there is no support for various system functions and will throw errors in the log. For example, exec is disabled by their php engine. I would recommend using Apache/PHP and using a Reverse Proxy to connect to the Kerio Webmail as outlined in another post. You also get to upgrade your PHP as you see fit, utilize PEAR libraries, add additional modules, etc.
