Looking for conceptual help...
I am writing a program in C++ to handle socket connections, eventually to be a websocket server. However, the rest of my stack uses PHP for serving up page.
Is there a way to use PHP as an intermediary between the client (JS) and the application (so I don't have to keep track of session data or state in the database to retrieve with each incoming socket request)?
I understand I can't pass the resource (a socket) to the application from PHP, but could I do a 302 with the request from the client? Could I just pass along the request/upgrade request to the application layer in some way?
