Integrating Symfony/PHP applcation with real time chat [closed]

  chat, javascript, php, symfony

I am developing a Symfony web application that needs to have real time chat functionality in it.

I have been considering the following solution:

Using nodejs with running aside a PHP server.

I am not experienced in the server field but I don’t think running two servers (PHP – apache/nginix + nodejs) is a good idea. I mean is it reliable for a scalable web application?

So what do you think? Is there another option?
