I'm running Zope 2.8.1-final, python 2.3.5, linux2 and Zope 2.6.1 python 2.1.3, linux2 on the same server so I don't see why you cant' also run Zope 2.9. More than likely each of your configurations have the same path to the lock file. Edit zopefolder/etc/zope.conf where zopefolder is the name of you Zope instance. Or you need to grant permissions for the user that Zope runs as to modify that file or change owner. See 'man chmod' and 'man chown'.
from zope.conf # Directive: lock-filename # # Description: # The path to a "lock file" which will be locked by Zope while it's # running. This file is used by zopectl.py to determine if Zope is # currently running. This defaults to CLIENT_HOME/Z2.lock. # # Default: CLIENT_HOME/Z2.lock # # Example: # # lock-filename /home/chrism/projects/sessions/var/Z2.lock Thomas On Wednesday 22 February 2006 12:59, Mark, Jonathan (Integic) wrote: > My website GoodbyeJim.com currently runs Zope 2.6 on Red Hat 7.3.
