ZC Buildout recipe for installing a Zope 2 ZEO server

Project description

This recipe creates and configures a Zope 2 ZEO server in parts. It also installs a control script, which is like zeoctl, in the bin/ directory. The name of the control script is the the name of the part in buildout.

You can use it with a part like this:

recipe = plone.recipe.zope2zeoserver
zope2-location = /path/to/zope2/install
zeo-address = 8100

The available options are:


The path where Zope 2 is installed. If you are also using the plone.recipe.zope2install recipe, and you have that configured as a part called ‘zope2’ prior to the zope2instance part, you can use ${zope2:location} for this parameter.


The path to the backup script. A wrapper for this will be generated in bin/zeopack, which sets up the appropriate environment to run this. Defaults to “${zope2-location}/utilities/ZODBTools/”. Set this option to an empty value if you do not want this script to be generated.


A relative or absolute path to a zeo.conf file. If this is not given, a zope.conf will be generated based on the the options below.

The following options all affect the generated zope.conf.


Give a port for the ZEO server. Defaults to 8100.


The name of the effective user for the ZEO process. Defaults to not setting an effective user.


The filename of the ZEO log file. Defaults to var/log/${partname}.log


The filename where the ZODB data file will be stored. Defaults to var/filestorage/Data.fs.


The filename where ZEO will write its socket file. Defaults to var/zeo.zdsock.


Give additional lines to zope.conf. Make sure you indent any lines after the one with the parameter.
