Installing Zend Server Community Edition using YUM

by bernt & torsten

To install Zend Server Community Edition, the first thing you have to do is to setup the repository for downloading the Zend Server Community Edition package.

To setup the environment:

Set up your Zend Server Community Edition repository by creating:

/etc/yum.repos.d/zend.repo and adding the following content:


name=Zend Server





name=Zend Server – noarch




Now you can use ‘yum’ to handle installations or any other tool that supports the RPM packaging format.

To install:

1.Once the environment is setup, run the appropriate command according to the product version and PHP support you require:

To install Zend Server Community Edition with PHP 5.2 run:

# yum install zend-server-ce-php-5.2

To install Zend Server Community Edition with PHP 5.3 run:

# yum install zend-server-ce-php-5.3

  1. To clean your packages cache and ensure retrieval of updates from the web, run:

yum clean all

After installing, a completion notification will appear, with a notice that the servers have started.

To access the Administration Interface (Web) open your browser at: https://localhost:10082/ZendServer (secure) or http://localhost:10081/ZendServer.

Upon initial login, you will be prompted to define your password.
