So I’m all upgraded onto the new Snow Leopard and I wanted to see what ZendServer CE was all about. Well, unfortunately, when I try to run it, I see watchdog errors when I try to start the Java Bridge and Lighttpd. Some have updated the lighttpd service script to not use watchdog (which still hoses the JavaBridge), while others tried to create a new zend user. What worked for me was to replace the watchdog application. After doing that, everything worked fine and I didn’t have to modify the lighttpd script or create a zend user.
Now that I have that done, I get to play around to see what all the buzz is about.
