Last year I installed Zend Optimizer on my server by downloading the tarball and installing. Now I find out that there is a script to install Zend from within the /scripts directory.

I am going to need to recompile my apache, which I suppose may break my Zend? And if this happens I would need to reinstall Zend.

So my question is this - Would it be safe to do a /scripts/installzendopt after I already installed a previous version of Zend manually via tarball? Am I likely to break something doing this?

Thanks

Mike

/scripts/installzendopt is the best way out

hi,
no as installer is included now in cpanel, its less likely to broke anything, as manual install did needed users to configure certain things, and novice users had problems with earlier instals.

/scripts/installzendopt

should do the all.

Note that you need to edit /scripts/installzendopt before running the script!

If you change the version inside the script to "3.2.6" then you will
install the latest version of Zend Optimizer when you run the script
and the newest version is fully compatible up through PHP v5.2.1

If you don't edit the "installzendopt" script, then you will instead
get an old outdated version of Zend Optimizer

Since I currently have Zend Opt 2.6.2 installed (manually, via tarball), do you also agree that I should be safe running /scripts/installzendopt ?

in /scripts/installzendopt I see:

my $ver = '3.0.1';

So I should change this to 3.2.2 before running /scripts/installzendopt?

Thanks

Yes, that's the line to change although it turns out Zend has released yet
another new version so make that "3.2.6" now.

Why edit the script?

Note that you need to edit /scripts/installzendopt before running the script!

and the newest version is fully compatible up through PHP v5.2.1

You can just run the following instead...

/scripts/installzendopt 3.2.6

... and it works just fine. :)
