Can PHP files work alongside a Rails app?

Assuming I have the following setup installed on my server…

Apache (with PHP)

And Apache is set to handle static files (ie those put into /public)…

Would it work if I put .php files inside public? I.E: would render fine, but would still be
the Rails app?

Thanks -

the Rails app?
Yes, search this or the mongrel users list for details. We do exactly
this. You can (and should) also check for “” which
contains an index.php you want parsed.

If you can’t find it, search the mongrel list for my name… I know I’ve
posted a config awhile back.
