Step 2: Launching Zend Server

Once installed, you'll have to launch Zend Server to begin working with its features, including Z-Ray.



Instructions on how to complete a procedure

To launch Zend Server:

  1. Open your browser at:
    • Windows: http://localhost:10081/ZendServer or https://localhost:10082/ZendServer
    • Linux/Mac: http://localhost:10081/ZendServer or https://localhost:10082/ZendServer
    • IBM i: http://IBM_i_hostname:10088/ZendServer


    If you are using a remote connection, replace 'localhost' with your Host Name or IP.

    Accessing Zend Server in a Cluster:

    In a clustered environment, accessing the Zend Server UI through a Load Balancer may affect performance. Therefore, we recommend to avoid accessing the Zend Server UI on multiple servers, and instead define one server as your UI access point, or define multiple servers as access points for different people/groups.

    The Launch Zend Server wizard is opened with the License Agreement dialog displayed.

  1. Read and accept the terms in the agreement, and click Next.
    The Profile dialog is displayed.
  1. Select the Development server profile to launch Zend Server with server and PHP settings optimized for a development environment and to enable Z-Ray. For information on the other profiles, see Launching Zend ServerLaunching Zend Server.
  2. Click Next.
    The User Passwords dialog is displayed.
  1. Configure the passwords for accessing the Zend Server UI. Passwords must be between 4 - 20 characters long and can be changed at a later stage from within the product.
    • Enter and confirm a password for 'admin' user.
    • Enter and confirm a password for 'developer' user (optional).


    For information on the differences between these two user roles, see User Management.

  2. Click Next.
    The Library Packages dialog is displayed with a list of the library packages deployed on Zend Server.
  1. Click Next.

You are automatically using a Zend Server Enterprise edition trial license. This license gives you full access to all Zend Server features for a period of 30 days.

If you have purchased a license, register Zend Server. If not, at any point during your trial you can click Contact Zend in the top-right corner of the UI to chat with a Zend representative.
