Some old docs at Zope Book Chapter 02: Using Zope

Quick and Dirty

Install Zope 2.7.0 on Unix-like OSes (requires Python 2.3.3):

    % wget
    % tar zxf Zope-2.7.0.tgz
    % cd Zope-2.7.0
    % ./configure
    % make
    % sudo make install

That will install Zope in /opt/Zope-2.7, to override supply the --prefix option to configure above. To create a new server instance:

    % /opt/Zope-2.7/bin/

You will be prompted to supply a directory path. The directory will be created if it does not exist. You will also be prompted to enter an initial username and password. Let's assume you made the instance in /home/zope/rocks, you can start it (in the foreground) using:

    % /home/zope/rocks/bin/runzope

By default it will run an HTTP server on port 8080 and an FTP server on port 8021. To edit the server configuration point your favorite editor at /home/zope/rocks/etc/zope.conf.
