Another Year, Another Zend Server CE Review

posted Feb 20, 2011, 8:10 AM by David Einerson

This time last year, I installed, configured and wrote a small PHP application using Zend Server Community Edition. My hope was to limit the enormous overhead in creating a robust PHP project by taking advantage of the Zend Framework. I had the same hopes this year, but once again find myself disappointed in the product.
It is the same issues I ran into last year. Namely, the documentation is often vague and has errors in it that are just misleading enough to throw me off track for hours at a time. I ran into other minor technical issues such as the library not being the correct version and apparently no way to update it short of major technical surgery. The product does generally work as advertised, but I am going to hold off on using it for the time being. Perhaps next year, the team that maintains the community edition will have made the necessary organizational shifts that will enable robust crowd-sourced documentation maintained by a community of developers.

Remove mongod.lock at boot on a Ubuntu 10.04.1 Server

posted Dec 19, 2010, 1:39 PM by David Einerson

Every once in a while my development server loses power and the MongoDB daemon doesn't get the chance to remove the mongod.lock file, so I modified the startup script to remove it prior to any attempt to start mongod. It is easy and may be done by adding one line to the startup script.
  1. sudo nano /etc/init/mongodb.conf
  2. add this line to the end of the pre-startup section of the script: if [ -f /var/lib/mongodb/mongod.lock ]; then rm -f /var/lib/mongodb/mongod.lock; fi
Save the file and you are done. The next time your server starts, it will check for the existence of the lock file and remove it if found.
If you have your data files stored in a custom location, just change the path to match.
