Zend Server Community Edition & XAMPP

Greetings,

I currently work with XAMPP for my development needs and it's great.  Soon I'll be working with the Zend Framework and it was recommended to me that I download and install the Zend Server Community Edition.  As I understand it, ZSCE includes Apache, MySQL and the Zend Framework.

I want to avoid conflicts and I really only need the Zend Framework installed on my machine since my assumption is that Apache and MySQL included with the ZSCE (excluding version variations) are essentially the same as what I have with my XAMPP installation.

Would it be adequate enough to simply install the Zend Framework and still use XAMPP or should I install the complete ZSCE instead?   My preference is to keep XAMPP and add on the Zend Framework ...

Thanks.

You don't specify if you are running wiindows or linux, but try out these instructions
http://www.mattbearman.co.uk/2010/05/18/how-to-install-zend-framework-with-xampp/

Logic says you should try and use the version of xampp that has as near to the same versions of products as zsce

I saw that one but the question is: how do I test it to see if it works?

here's another one I found: http://normankosmal.com/wordpress/?p=47

I tried it but I can't get the shell command to work so it creates the testproject folder with the proper files.  Any ideas?

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, 64bit and here's the rest:

###### Apache Friends XAMPP (Basis Package) version 1.7.3 ######

  + Apache 2.2.14 (IPV6 enabled)
  + MySQL 5.1.41 (Community Server) with PBXT engine 1.0.09-rc
  + PHP 5.3.1 (PEAR, Mail_Mime, MDB2, Zend)
  + Perl 5.10.1 (Bundle::Apache2, Apache2::Request, Bundle::Apache::ASP, Bundle::Email, Bundle::DBD::mysql, DBD::SQlite, Randy Kobes PPM)
  + XAMPP Control Version 2.5.8 (ApacheFriends Edition)
  + XAMPP CLI Bundle 1.6
  + XAMPP Port Check 1.5
  + XAMPP Security 1.1
  + SQLite 2.8.17
  + SQLite 3.6.20
  + OpenSSL 0.9.8l
  + phpMyAdmin 3.2.4
  + ADOdb v5.10
  + FPDF v1.6
  + Zend Framework 1.9.6 Minimal Package (via PEAR)
  + Mercury Mail Transport System v4.72
  + msmtp 1.4.19 (a sendmail compatible SMTP client)
  + FileZilla FTP Server 0.9.33
  + Webalizer 2.21-02 (with GeoIP lite)
  + apc 3.1.3p1 for PHP
  + eAccelerator 0.9.6-rc1 for PHP
  + Ming 0.4.3 for PHP
  + PDF with pdflib lite v7.0.4p4 for PHP
  + rar 2.0.0-dev for PHP
  + Xdebug 2.0.6-dev for PHP
  + libapreq2 v2.12 (mod_apreq2) for Apache

As you can see above, XAMPP lists Zend Framework Minimal 1.9.6 which raises the following questions:

1) If XAMPP already includes the Zend Framework, why would anyone want to install it (perhaps to upgrade to the latest version or install the full framework?)

2) How do I start using and/or test that the Zend Framework is actually already running?

oh and I get no error messages when running the shell command; it seems to work but no directory is created as the instructions say it should be.

In php.ini, in the include_path line, you need to make sure that your downloaded zend framework location is specified before pear, eg.

include_path = “.;C:\xampp\htdocs\zend\library;C:\xampp\php\PEAR”

make sure you have your php folder in your windows path, I'd imagine you do.

I'm confused you don't get any error messages, not even in your event log?
