Together with my colleague Jan we today tried to fix a problem with Zope ZEO server that wouldn't start. Very strange we thought since another ZEO server on the same machine was working fine. We compared
zope.conf files and found nothing obvious. Here was the error you get with 'bin/runzeo':
root@da-ovz-vm99182:/var/lib/zope-2.8.9/aragdb-zeo1# ./bin/runzeo Error: error opening file //var/lib/zope-2.8.9/aragdb-zeo1/etc/zeo.conf: [Errno ftp error] no host given
Long story short, the error was this line in 'runzeo':
which should have been this:
Not so easy to spot because the
CONFIG_FILE line is something you rarely look closely at.
