I'm having problems with starting Zope itself:
I've installed Zope 2.8.7 on RH Linux with Python 2.3.5 behind Apache
2.2.2, but just can't start it. I have installed and attempted to start
Zope as a non-root user but inside of a dir that my user does has full
privileges. It's also a dir that is an Apache Virtual Host.
Following the guide in docs/INSTALL.txt
#> ./configure --prefix=/path/to/zope/<DIR>
#> make install
#> Directory: </PATH/TO/DESIRED/DIR/WITH/PRIVILEGES>
#> username <USERNAME>
#> password <PASSWORD>
#> password again <PASSWORD>
It's at this last stage that the command prompt just hangs. I have left it
for 5 minutes, tried to connect to vhost.mydomain.net:8080/manage via
Firefox which then hangs and says 'The Connection Has Timed Out'.
And if I start Zope using:
#> /path/to/zope/bin/<DIR>/bin/zopectl start
It *seems* to start. And running ps x | grep zope shows two zope
processes, yet when I try to connect to vhost.mydomain.net:8080/manage
again - Firefox hangs again and again then says 'The Connection Has Timed
There is nothing in the apache event_log, or the Apache event_log for this
sub-domain, nothing in Zope's Z2.log and no errors in Zope's event.log
other than a single entry: WARNING ZODB.FileStorage Ignoring index for
I feel as though I've covered all the bases, and the only niggly feeling I
have is that Zope needs to be installed as root but run as another user.
Can anyone help me out here? I'm fully stuck!
Many thanks for reading.
