    Also... having found out the hard way...

    If you have Installatron on your VPS, it is incompatible with Zend 3.3.0. The Installatron links will not show up properly in your control panel with both installed. You will need to stick to version 3.2.8 which works fine.

    I believe that 3.2.8 is still the default version for DA and customapache.

    To revert, you can follow the directions above for installing Zend. This should revert you back to 3.2.8

    More information here:

    Afterwords, you will have to do an Installatron repair. To repair Installatron, you can do thw following:

    curl -O
    /usr/local/bin/php -n -q repair -f

    If your having any problems with Zend, try this.
    Its a possible fix.
    It simply Cleans and Updates Zend to the newest version available.

    cd /usr/local/directadmin/customapache
    ./build clean
    ./build update
    ./build zend

    FYI I did not need to manually install Zend Optimizer on my new KnownHost VPS account. It came with PHP 4.4.9 with Zend enabled.

    However, when I upgraded to PHP5 using DirectAdmin's custombuild tool, I did need to specifically enable Zend in the options.conf file. It was disabled by default. Instructions for using custombuild to upgrade to PHP5 are here:
