Zend Controller

The Zend Controller is accessed from the system tray by clicking on the Zend Icon zcpanel.png, or from the command line by running <install_path>/bin/zendcontroller.

Windows users can load the Zend Controller by going to <install_path>\bin and clicking Zend Controller.exe.

The Zend Controller is a system tray utility that provides quick access to frequently performed tasks and useful information.

If you are accessing Zend Server that is running on a different machine you will not be able to see the Zend Controller unless you installed an additional instance on your machine.
