Zend Optimizer: HOW TO INSTALL?

    I ‘m running Plesk 7.5.4 on a Linux RedHat9 platform.
    I need to install Zend Optimizer so I downloaded the installation package (2.5.10 – latest one) from Zend website.

    The package name was ZendOptimizer-2.5.10a-linux-glibc21-i386.tar.gz (the one that is for linux-glibc21-i386 platform) which is located here: http://www.zend.com/store/getfreefi...pid=13&zbid=919

    I ran the installation via SSH and answered the following questions:

    Q: Where is the php.ini file located?
    A: /etc

    Q: Specify location for Zend Optimizer Installation:
    A: /usr/local/Zend

    Q: Are you using Apache webserver?
    A: Yes

    Q: Specify the full path to the Apache control utility (apachectl)
    A: /usr/sbin/apachectl

    After that an installation was done and the installer performed the following actions:

    1. Copied php.ini from /etc to /usr/local/Zend/etc & also placed a symbolic link to the new location in /etc
    2. Added some lines to php.ini file

    So everything went fine so far. But after Apache restart nothing changed. I see the Zend directory in /usr/local, I see in phpinfo() that a new ini-file was used from /usr/local/Zend/etc

    But that’s all no ZendOptimizer running.

    Can someone please tell me what went wrong?
    What can I do to make it work?

    Thank you.

    Do you have at the end of the file php.ini zend_extension inclusion directives?

    I'm having this same exact problem with installing zend optimizer.

    Plesk 7.5.4 on RedHat 9 and it looks like it installed fine, all the stuff is in the correct php.ini...

    I've reinstalled many times, everything checks right but phpinfo() doesn't show it installed and programs that require it can't use it.

    This is a virtually clean plesk install, it was 7.5.3 and was upgraded to 7.5.4 using the rpm packages but nothing else has ever been changed in it.

    Here's what's in my php.ini that Zend Optimizer added:


    Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

    I figured this problem out.. Turns out the newest version of Zend Optimizer doesn't work with the way plesk compiles php. The following link shows the solution:


    Here's the solution from that thread:

    PSA 7.5.4 Works for me.

    This program makes use of the Zend Scripting Language Engine:

    My problem was more stupid than real. Google Web Accelerator was on and caching my pages.
