Working with Components

The Components page provides a convenient way to view and configure the Zend Components installed in your environment.

Use this page to control and configure components loaded in your environment.

Changing Component Status




To change a component's status:

  1. Go to Server Setup | Components.

  2. Select a component and click the link in the Actions column to turn the component on or off.

  3. After changing the component's status, a message appears, prompting you to click the Restart Server button at the bottom of the screen restart-btn-pe.gif.

  • More than one component can be loaded or unloaded before you click Restart Server. All the changes made prior to restarting the PHP are applied when the server restarts.
  • Even if you navigate to other tabs, the changes are kept and are applied when the server restarts.

Changes are updated in the Components page and in your php.ini file. Changes are also applied when you manually restart your Web Server.

Configuring Directives Associated with Components




To configure a directive associated with a component:

  1. Go to Server Setup | Components.

  2. If the component has directives that can be configured, a link appears in the directives column.
    Clicking the link opens the Directives page with the relevant directives already filtered.

  3. Configure the directive as required.
    You can configure multiple directives before you save your changes.

  4. Click the Save Changes save_directives.png button to save your changes. To discard changes, leave the screen without clicking Save Changes.

Changes will be updated in the Components page and in your php.ini file the next time the server restarts.


Directives of both loaded and unloaded components can be configured through the Components page.


Actions are additional activities that can be applied to a certain component when necessary.

The actions are as follows:

Adding New Components

The installation process determines which components are installed in your environment. Depending on your operating system, you can choose to customize your installation (Windows) or to work with a basic set of components that you can add to later on (DEB, RPM).

In this case no additional installation is required but only configuration change.

For installation specific instructions on how to add additional components, see Choosing Which Distribution to Install and click on your installation type for instructions.
