Quick Tip Install Zend Server 7 on an Ubuntu 14.04 Vagrant Box
July 22, 2014 @ 11:14:30

The SitePoint Web Foundations blog has a post from Bruno Skvorc showing how to install Zend Server on Ubuntu 7 set up and configured by Vagrant.

I recently took a look at Zend Server 7, the latest version of the powerful application monitor/manager suite. This quick tip will show you how to get it installed on a Vagrant box so you too can experiment with its features.

The process is made up of four (well, five...one is optional) steps making it pretty easy to try out:

  • Install Prerequisites
  • Clone and Boot
  • Download and Run Installer
  • Fix Log Permissions
  • Deploy an Application (the optional one)

He includes the code updates you'll need to make and some screenshots along the way to be sure you're on the right track.

Hasin Hayder:
Running Symfony 2 Applications in OpenShift
October 25, 2013 @ 09:10:57

Hasin Hayder has posted a guide to getting a Symfony2 application up and running in an OpenShift instance. OpenShift is a cloud hosting service that makes deploying and scaling applications simpler.

Openshift is a fantastic Polyglot PaaS from Redhat, and you can do a lot of things with these containers. The good news is that with free accounts, OpenShift gives three gears for free, forever. Today, in this article I will show you how to install and run your Symfony applications in OpenShift.

He shows you how to set up a Zend Server (5.6) instance and grab the repository through a git checkout. The commands to create a new Symfony2 application (via Composer) are also included. With a small change to the .gitignore, the needed configuration files and directories will no longer be ignored and will be pushed. There's also a bit of information about setting up and using the provided database instance.

Setting up Zend Server 6 on OS X for PHP development
August 12, 2013 @ 10:50:18

Rob Allen has posted a full guide to his site today showing how to get Zend Server 6 up and running on an OSX installation:

I recently decided to upgrade my Mac's PHP to 5.4. One of the available options is Zend Server 6.1, Free edition. These are my notes how to set it up so that it works the way I develop.

He goes through each of the steps and includes configuration changes where appropriate:

  • Installation
  • Apache setup
  • Zend Server admin configuration
  • Command line control
  • MySQL setup
  • Apache vhost configuration
  • Fixing sending email (doesn't work "out of the box")

He also points to the section of the Zend Server admin interface that shows the logs - error, access and a php-specific log.

DotKernel.com:
Installing GeoIP extension in Zend Server 5.6 on Windows
August 01, 2013 @ 10:10:26

On the DotKernel.com site today there's a post walking you through the installation of the GeoIP extension on Zend Server (5.6) on Windows. It starts with a bit of test code to check and see if you might already have it installed.

The steps are relatively easy:

  • Download the extension package
  • Copy it to the right location
  • Use the Zend Server interface to turn on the extension
  • Download and copy some geoIP databases from Maxmind

Most of these steps go for any extension you want to install, but keep in mind since it's Windows you'll need the .dll file, not the source to compile. Some extensions may not have this available for download.

Andi Gutmans has a new post to his site about a recent update to the offerings on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) - it now offers Zend Server 6 as an installable option.

Zend Server 6 is the ideal application platform for mobile and web applications, and this version brings a new level of enterprise capabilities. [...] Today, I'm also pleased to share that this newest version of Zend Server is now available on the Amazon Web Services Marketplace. Now, for one combined fee with Amazon Web Services, you can run your applications on a fully supported PHP application platform with Zend Server 6 running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Ubuntu Linux.

If you're interested in what Zend Server has to offer, check out the product page on the Zend website.

Matthew Weier O'Phinney:
Zend Server, ZF2, and Page Caching
November 06, 2012 @ 10:53:56

If you're considering using Zend Server in your development, you might find this new post from Matthew Weier O'Phinney interesting. It talks about a handy feature of the tool and how it can help with the performance of a Zend Framework 2-based application.

Zend Server has a very cool Page Caching feature. Basically, you can provide URLs or URL regular expressions, and tell Zend Server to provide full-page caching of those pages. This can provide a tremendous performance boost, without needing to change anything in your application structure; simply enable it for a set of pages, and sit back and relax. [...] However, this feature is not entirely straight-forward when using a framework that provides its own routing, such as ZF2. The reason is because it assumes by default that each match maps to a specific file on the filesystem, and prepares the caching based on the actual file it hits.

Since configuration is mostly done through Server's web interface, this could be a problem. Thankfully, he shows you another setting that allows you to cache multiple versions of pages based on parameters you define. Using this and a setting of "_SERVER" with a value of "[REQUEST_URI]" you should be good to go.

Joshua Thijssen's Blog:
Facter Zend Server
December 28, 2011 @ 11:35:12

Joshua Thijssen has shared a handy tip for those using Zend Server on a pupptet-ed server - using a Facter plugin to check for the ZS install and only install what's needed (rather than end up with multiple PHP installs).

This means you should not install the default PHP package for your distribution when the distribution also runs on Zend Server. This Facter plugin will allow you to use the $zendserver fact inside your own manifests to check if Zend server is installed, so you can take measures against installing stuff that is taken care of by ZendServer itself.

You can download the plugin from his github account, https://github.com/jaytaph/puppet-facter-zendserver, and easily install it into your puppet setup.

Deployment beta for Zend Server 5.5 - Getting Started
June 24, 2011 @ 10:31:57

In a new post today Kevin Schroeder points out a new feature in the Zend Server project (version 5.5, beta) that helps make deployment simple for your site. He also includes a "getting started" guide to show it in action.

We have announced that we are making the beta for our new deployment feature in Zend Server 5.5 beta, available for download. It's not feature complete (there are some new features being worked on), but it provides the functionality needed for the 90% of us who do not have the need to have crazy complex deployment scenarios.

A short video is also included in the post to show how it's all set up in the Zend Server interface. His guide, using the "zdpack" tool, shows how to package up a basic Zend Framework project, create the deployment skeleton (including handy hooks like "stage/unstage", "activate/deactivate" where you can put Zend Framework-based PHP code), modify the deployment file to your needs and "zdpack" the result into a single packaged zip file. There's a forum for support and some sample applications if you'd like to try it out with less hassle.

IBM developerWorks:
Create a PHP development environment on the cloud
March 15, 2011 @ 10:08:44

On the IBM developerWorks site today there's a new tutorial from Daniel Krook showing you how to use the IBM Cloud product to set up a development environment based on a Red Hat Enterprise server distribution with Zend Server as the PHP environment.

This article explains what makes cloud computing appealing to PHP developers and provides step-by-step instructions how to use the IBM Cloud to set up a PHP and DB2 development environment quickly. Learn how to provision Linux data and web application servers, connect to the virtual machines via SSH, use X Forwarding to install a pre-configured PHP distribution, and test your connection to DB2.

He starts with some benefits that the IBM Cloud can bring to developers and lists a few common goals that they look for in their development platforms. The rest of the post walks you through the setup and install of a sample instance - adding and configuring it, connecting via an SSH connection and installing Zend Server to give you a simple, hassle-free installation of a PHP environment.

New Zend Server Job Queue Library
March 02, 2011 @ 09:16:04

In his newly updated blog today (changed to WordPress) Kevin Schroeder has a new post looking at a new queuing library available for Zend Server's Job Queue including an example of its use.

This will probably be one of the last posts I do on the Zend Server Job Queue functionality. From this point on they will probably be less frequent, though I'm sure several posts will allude to it. The reason I'm going to put it on the back burner is because I have written a library which is now available on GitHub. What it does is encapsulate all of the functionality that I think needs to be there to be able to implement asynchronous functionality.

In his example code, he shows how to use the library to create a job class that sends a basic email to a defined address and how to set it up with the Manager. Then the action can be called from a script getting the remote job and checking to see when the job has finished.
