    Zope also has the capability to listen on other TCP ports.  Zope
    supports separate TCP ports for FTP (File Transfer Protocol),
    "monitor" (internal debugging), WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring
    and Versioning), and ICP (Internet Cache Protocol) access.  If you
    see messages which indicate that Zope is listening on ports other
    than the default 8080 HTTP, don't panic, it's likely normal.

       In a section titled "Starting Zope", I would expect instructions on how to actually *start Zope*. If it's
       already supposed to be running at this point, it might be nice to be told 1) how to make sure it really is
       already running, and 2) how to start it in case it's not.

       Ah, I can see now that there _are_ instructions, they're just farther down. The difficulty is that all
       headings on this page are in the same style, so you can't tell what's a sub-heading and what's a new sibling

       I'm with you - the format confused me a bit too.  Once you know, the info is good.

       So can somebody comment this?! chirael had his question since Mar. 18, 2004(!) and still nobody knows how to
       start Zope.
       I am using FreeBSD and installed Zope properly. I followed all instructions and even tried to install it from
       Trying to start:

       #/usr/local/etc/rc.d/zope.sh start

       It meas Zope started... But not really... No any error message, /var/log/messages is empty... Nothing to see,
       nothing to view and nothng(!) to report...
