You have answer above. To run as root you have
to change effective-user at zope.conf file

I tried to change effective-user from the zope.conf.in file and saved it as
zope.conf, I used the command

effective-user tleis , as stated in the example of that file, but no thing
changed. if anyone knows why please tell me (just curousity)

Strange that it worked. In general I think you shouldn't
run zope as root.

I created a new user as Maciej said, and there i tried to create an
instance, but I got a denied permission message. What I did finally is that
I deleted the folders in both /tmp/zope and /opt/Zope-2.10 folders, and
installed Zope Again and everything is working fine right
now! but i still want to understand why this happened to me?
Thanks for you
