The reason for this blog is to create a guide on how to install Drupal on a Linux Server ( I choose Ubuntu 10.04 amd64 LTS but any Linux distro will work just fine) but instead of using all the PHP packages bundled with this Linux distribution we will be using Zend Server which is an Application Sever built for  PHP by Zend.

So, once you have set up Ubuntu, let's login as the root user typing the following command:
    
    $ sudo -s

cool , now that we have all the privileges, let's add the Zend Server repository to our sources list by typing:
    
    # nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Sometimes when updating or upgrading different packages on your Ubuntu specially kernel updates, Zend Server tends to break up and the whole packages system too, you usually get errors like "bad inconsistency" of package php-zend-server-ce-php-5.x and you are asked by the system to reinstall this package but that's also impossible due to the changes the update has performed.
In order to fix this issue try following the next steps:

    sudo /usr/local/zend/bin/zendctl.sh stop   => stop zend server service
    sudo rm -rfv /usr/local/zend/tmp/*            => remove zend server's cache and/or temp files
    sudo /usr/local/zend/bin/zendctl.sh start  => start the service again

and reinstall the zend-server-ce-php-5.x package using synaptic, or dpkg.
Hope this helps!
