Aloha, I just applied the below hotfix as directed to a zope 2.7.5 installation on my development machine.
It broke something bad, now the browser just says The connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost:9673 I cannot access the ZMI nor any site pages, not on localhost:9673 nor on 127.0.0.1:9673 That is the port it was installed and had been working on. I did nothing but install the hotfix as directed on the linked page below. I have completely restarted the machine. At boot time the messages indicate that zope started fine, as usual. Any help appreciated, the sooner the better. thanks, John S. --- Andreas Jung <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > Hello, > > a security issue with the Docutils package coming with Zope 2.6 or > higher > has been discovered.
