I am using a linux web hosting service, who has recently installed python into apache. Usually i install web products via ftp. After reading how to install zope (and plone), I couldnt find a reference how to install zope using ftp only. Is there a way to do so, also, so that zope does not use its built in web server but the apache server of the web host.

You didn't find that reference because you can't do that. Simple as that I'm afraid. You need shell access to install and run Zope.
Hello Jens,

Thank you for yoru prompt response.

Is this an "oversight", or general lack of need as virtually all Zope users run their own servers, or an inherent limitation of how Zope works ...

Please keep this on the mailing list.

What you are referring to is a use case Zope cannot cater for. To run a Zope server you must have certain levels of access to the server. Zope is not like a CGI-script that you can upload and run out of Apache, it is a full-blown server process on its own.

This is neither an oversight nor a limitation, this requirement exists for all real server software you want to install and run.
