Maybe this will help you give away root control of your server.

Do not do this for anything other than a test configuration! This 
setting effectively gives anyone who manages or subverts the Zope 
install the keys to your server.

Instead, create a minimally privileged user (e.g., "zope") and group. 
Make sure that user can update the Zope install's var directory. Then, 
use the "-u user" argument to set Zope to run as that user, e.g., "-u zope".

Do not connect a server to the Internet unless you understand why this 
is important.
