Run the *start* script::

Where do you find the start script?? ( Same question for the bat file in Windows)
% Anonymous User - Apr. 30, 2002 10:10 am:
in the "Zope-version-linux2-x86" dir
% Anonymous User - May 8, 2002 10:53 am:
start script is generated by the install script. If it is not there Zope might
not be installed correctly.

I think the key point here is how to start zope when a Zope...rpm package is installed, instead of a tar.gz
% Anonymous User - May 17, 2002 9:28 pm:
exactly.... how do you do this? I'm looking all over and I can't seem to find a way to start zope now that
I've installed from an RPM
% Anonymous User - May 18, 2002 7:26 am:
Here on the debian (woody) there is an *init script* on /etc/init/zope that you can start like
'/etc/init/zope start'. The /etc/init/zope scripts then runs
a *shell script* called 'zopectl' (in /usr/sbin/zopectl). Zopectl then essentially starts a *python script*
'/usr/sbin/zope-z2'. You can hook in anywhere. RPM might be slightly different though.

I'm on mandrake, installed from rpm, searched /etc and /usr for *start* *zope* and only thing I've found is
Which says it doesn't have the right permissions running as root and it didn't put it into the start up
process for the next reboot. Am I missing something?
Or have I got too much already?

If you are using an RPM installed version of Zope you can find out where it put the start and stop scripts by
doing 'rpm -ql | grep start' and 'rpm -ql | grep stop'
The -ql parameters are for 'q'uery and 'l'ist (files in rpm, that is)
The two above rpm commands should list exactly where to find the start and stop scripts... hope that helps!

On SuSE, './start' (as root) works only after having set
$ZOPEHOME/var to world-writable.

zope is awesome but too hard to install and configure on linux, it should be more like the win version
% Anonymous User - Sep. 26, 2002 2:40 pm:
well, the command properly spelled shold be
rpm -ql zope | grep start
anyway, in my suse 8.0 I get /opt/zope/ZServer/medusa/start_medusa.pyc
I suppose that the pyc is a python script, but I know nothing about phython.
Somebody knows if this is the right script?

Why the heck does the book not mention anything about making zope work with the web server?
% Anonymous User - Oct. 6, 2002 4:43 pm:
in suse 8.0 the script to run is

(sorry, to explain my comment). I mean, how to work with apache web server. I see the note below that it
belongs in the administrator's guide. Well, guess what. That document seems to be no longer maintained and
out of date.
