Daniel Krook has taken a look at the Zend Server tool and has written up a post that's part description and part tutorial. He talks about features of the Server and offers some helpful hints for getting it up and running.
A few months back, Ed Kietlinski introduced us to the new Zend Server at a New York PHP meeting. I've since installed it on two of my department's servers and put together some notes on my experience.
He takes a look at what the Server is and what it has to offer, both for corporate and community projects. He also notes that it has hit the "sweet spot" in his group to provide an easy to maintain solution that gives them all the power and simplicity that a package-based too can provide. He spends the rest of the post showing a sample installation onto two CentOS servers (including the installation of DB2, Mail and PEAR).
