You must precisely describe what you do and what happens. Apparently, you have some form of startup problem. In older Zope versions, you could find hints to such problems in the log file. In newer Zope versions, you have to start Zope in the foreground and watch for the messages that are listed on the "console". There has been a big incompatibility step from Zope 2.7 to Zope 2.8. With this step support for some data types has been discontinued. A Zope 2.8 version or newer cannot understand the corresponding data. The corresponding objects must be converted to more modern types in a pre-2.8 instance. Thus, it might be necessary to bring up an older version again before you can use a modern Zope version. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
