    Default How to run z-push on zimbra jetty: Proof of Concept

    This is a proof of concept for getting z-push to run on the same server as zimbra without doing too much. It was late when I did this, so I may have missed a step or two. There probably is even a better way to do this! Also, this is only a proof of concept. Future updates will probably break it. As always, use at your own risk!

    This was tested using z-push 2.0.8-1731, zimbrabackend 56.1, Zimbra 8.0.4 OSE on Centos6

    install php-cgi php-process

    :create folder
    opt/z-push and copy z-push files to it
    Configure z-push per install instructions. zimbra url for backend can be localhost or

    :create link in opt/zimbra/jetty/webapps to /opt/z-push
    ln -s /opt/zimbra/jetty/webapps/z-push /opt/z-push

    :create shell file called in /usr/bin
    export SCRIPT_FILENAME=$1

    :create a WEB-INF folder in /opt/z-push

    :create web.xml file with the following info and place in /opt/z-push/WEB-INF
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
    <Call name="addAliasCheck">
          <New class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.handler.ContextHandler$ApprovePathPrefixAliases"/>
    :edit /opt/zimbra/jetty/etc/
                <Set name="replacement">/service/extension/zimbrasync</Set>
                 <Set name="replacement">/z-push/index.php</Set>
    I added this below a similar entry for "zimlet"
    <Call name="addRule">
    		<New class="org.eclipse.jetty.rewrite.handler.RewritePatternRule">
    		    <Set name="pattern">/z-push/*</Set>
    		    <Set name="replacement">/z-push</Set>
    		    <Set name="terminating">true</Set>
    Again, I added this near similar code for "zimlet"
    <New id="z-push" class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext">
          <Arg><Ref id="Contexts"/></Arg>
          <Arg><SystemProperty name="jetty.home" default="."/>/webapps/z-push</Arg>
          <Set name="configurationClasses"><Ref id="plusConfig"/></Set>
          <Set name="defaultsDescriptor"><SystemProperty name="jetty.home" default="."/>/etc/webdefault.xml</Set>
          <Set name="tempDirectory"><SystemProperty name="jetty.home" default="."/>/work/z-push</Set>
          <Set name="compactPath">true</Set>
          <Get name="errorHandler">
            <Call name="setShowStacks">
              <Arg type="boolean">false</Arg>
          <Call name="setAttribute">
    :Edit php.ini
    edit etc/php.ini
    magic_quotes_gpc off
    register_globals off
    magic_quotes_runtime off
    short_open_tag on
    cgi.force_redirect = 0
    max_execution_time = 120
    memory_limit = 128M

    :restart jetty
    su zimbra
    zmmailboxdctl restart

    That should do it.
    I welcome any feedback/suggestions. Please let me know if you have any questions, and I'll do my best to answer them.
