ZendServer on MacOSX 10.6.2

Posted on: January 17, 2010

Today i tried to install ZendServer on my Macbook. The installation of the server is a bit buggy. I had to adjust some settings to get the server work.
It was not possible to open the configuration page on localhost 10081 or 10083 (https). There was some trouble with a missing certificate for lighttpd
I made these changes:

Edit the /etc/profile and added these two lines at the end of the file.

Then i changed the directory to /usr/local/zend/etc/tls/certs and creadted the missing certificate with openssl.
sudo openssl req -new -x509 -keyout server.pem -out lighttpd.pem -days 365 -nodes

To execute apache on port 80 and on localhost only i had to edit apachectl and httpd.conf
nano /usr/local/zend/apache2/conf/httpd.conf
I changed the line
Listen 10088

nano /usr/local/zend/apache2/bin/apachectl
I changed the line
I was now able to start the server with
/usr/local/zend/bin/zendctl.sh start
And to stop i just execute
/usr/local/zend/bin/zendctl.sh stop

Thanks for the post. I was able to perform the steps you provided save for the most critical, creating the ssl certificate.

When I try change the directory to “/usr/local/zend/etc/tls/certs” it tell me that permission is denied.
