Hi Felipe,

if Zope is started as root, it switches to uid "nobody". Thus preventing
access to its directory or at least Zope cannot write over its
pid file and such. You may get appropriate messages in your logfile or
(if not sent to /dev/null of course)
So all you have to do is to start Zope with the appropriate user-id.
see "man su" for this.
