Hi Rob,

Looks like it is your start script.

You should give Zope a IP and port to start up on for the webserver.

Look at the code of the z2.py, in the top it has all the of the parameters
you need (don't have one in front of me now).

It looks like you need to remove the first "&" so it will run in debug
mode (so you can see it start from the command line) and add in a "-w
8080" to tell it to start the webserver (-w) on port 8080. (it might be -W

It is all in the z2.py which is in the root of the zope directory.
