stop right there... you should be using ssh...

the user that made the zopeinstance and running

 using SHA-1 and then entering nothing for domains ( I presumed that this
would give access for all domains etc)


 I then get an access denied message on running this and the access file is
not created.

well, maybe you could show us the error rather than not quite giving us enough information to be able to help you ;-)


- your user didn't have permission to read or maybe execute python or zpasswd.py

- your user didn't have permissions to write to the directory where you were trying to create the access file.

zope doesn't need to be stopped, but it does need to be restarted once the access file has been created...

that said, if you want zopectl to let you do things without stopping Zope, just get a ZEO setup up and running...
