I agree Sascha, I would prefer to much more grounded in the ways of the command line before attempting this stuff. I'm trying to get this running as I was hoping that it wouldn't be too involved and would be able to get busy creating Plone sites. I don't have the luxury of time to learn more about this in general beforehand and so made the decision to learn "on the job" as it were. You may see this as foolish, and it probably is, but I entered into this hoping that I wouldn't have to get my hands too dirty. I now find myself in uncharted territory, not wanting to turn back.
So do you think I should throw in the towel now? -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Sascha Welter Sent: 06 July 2006 10:14 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: RE: [Zope] Zope installation woes (Wed, Jul 05, 2006 at 12:00:08PM -0400) [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote/schrieb/egrapse: > From: "russ" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > Subject: RE: [Zope] Zope installation woes > Firstly I'll just mention a little bit more about the server.

And now my point: Jonathan, I disagree here. Russ, you are running a command you don't know about (and you don't even care enough to check the spelling) as *root* on a *production* server. Please notify the servers administrator and/or owner about this. You shouldn't be allowed near a root prompt. At least till you've done your homework to the extend that you pay attention before doing anything as root. Besides, nobody told you to do this as root. When giving commands as root, you can destroy everything that is on that server. For starters try it with `rm -rf /`. Why don't you try the installation first on a test machine or personal workstation? We all have to learn stuff first, but a production server isn't a learning environment. Nowadays it is *very* easy to get a Unix clone system to play around with. There is also documentation to be found about Zope and System Administration in general, for free on the Internet.
