Site is now running Zend Server 8.0.1. During installation zendsvr/htdocs was transfered to /zendsvr6/htdocs. Wiki has been updated to work and is landing page (mostly works). Joomla has not yet been repaired. Find different /zendsvr6/htdocs/index.html when switch is needed.

Added autostart for MySql IPL — works better over Zend version of start ….

> CRTJOBD JOBD(ZENDSVR/ADC_MYSQLD) JOBQ(ZENDSVR/ZSVR_JOBQ) TEXT('Ranger start MySql ZENDSVR') USER(MYSQL) 
  RQSDTA('QSH CMD(''/QOpenSys/usr/bin/sh -c "sleep 60; /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe  --user=mysql"'')')
> ADDAJE SBSD(ZENDSVR/ZENDSVR) JOB(ADC_MYSQLJ) JOBD(ZENDSVR/ADC_MYSQLD)
> STRSBS SBSD(ZENDSVR/ZENDSVR)

IF you ever wish to remove permanently ...
> ENDSBS SBS(ZENDSVR) OPTION(*IMMED)
> RMVAJE SBSD(ZENDSVR/ZENDSVR) JOB(ADC_MYSQLJ)
> DLTJOBD JOBD(ZENDSVR/ADC_MYSQLD)

Also set autostart of ZENDSVR instance …

How to make your HTTP server instance auto-start: Go into the admin interface for your iSeries. 
http://iseries.example.com:2001 Click IBM Web Administration for iSeries Click on the "Manage" tab (if you're not already there) 
Select the server instance that you want to autostart. (You can do this by clicking on "All Servers" 
then selecting the one you want and clicking "manage details", or you can use the pull-down box, etc.) 
Select Server Properties -> General Server Configuration On this screen, there's a choice for "Autostart". 
It can be set to "Global", "Yes" or "No". If you want this session to start when TCP/IP starts, select "Yes". 
If you don't, select "No". Don't forget to apply your changes.

The new zend server console is accessed for ZENDSVR library:

go zendsvr/zsmenu

However, mysql start from hand seems to work best.

SBMJOB CMD(QSH CMD('/QOpenSys/usr/bin/sh -c "/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe  --user=mysql" 2>&1')) JOB(MYSQL) JOBD(ZENDSVR/ZSVR_JOBD)

YiPs site slowed down due few old PHP applications constantly writing PHP 5.3 deprecated messages into php error log. I modified offending PHP scripts with error_reporting(E_ALL ^ E_DEPRECATED), but choose NOT to edit php.ini file error_reporting.

FYI — I have only anecdotal evidence, but this may be useful for PHP sites “slowing down” …

call qp2term
echo start > /usr/local/zendsvr/var/log/php.log
Interesting ... 
... site immediately ran faster after cleared log
... appears "hung" php.cgi children popped back to life
... useful to folks running PHP sites on IBM i?

2011/11/29 - Short of it …

  • ZENDSVR (80) - new Apache on port 80
    • STRTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(ZENDSVR)
    • go zendsvr/zsmenu
  • SEAL1 (moved to 10088), ZENDSVR (89), PASE Apache (8000) - deprecated
    • endTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(SEAL1)
    • endTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(ZENDCORE)
    • go zendcore/zcmenu → 5. Service Management menu → 2. Stop Zend Core Subsystem
  • Things i am slightly worried about …
    • how did sandbox clean-up work??? … need something more from old Zend Core?
    • some old .htaccess changed because php_var and such not work FastCGI … site works .. but still ???
    • did i open authority “too far” grant authorization for QTMHHTTP … i think not???
    • wiki .htaccess change lead to some “short links” orphaned
      • have been fixing using a /wiki/name/name/index.php header location reroute … works so far

2011/11/29 - Zend Server 5.1.1 Upgrade

  • Zend Server management

    • /www/zendsvr/logs — active Apache logs
    • /usr/local/zendsvr/var/log/php.log — active PHP error logging
      • still number of deprecated message due to PHP 5.3 — need PHP product updates i suspect
  • Upgraded Joomla
    • new version for PHP 5.3 due to deprecated PHP functions (eregi, etc.)
    • was a very simple zip file style upgrade
  • .htaccess removed/changed - multiple
    • Zend Server is FastCGI, therefore no longer support php_var and related

    • /usr/local/mysql - programs upgraded to 5.1.50 (i think)
    • /usr/local/mysqldata - all data left intact (old data, new mysql engine)
