You could use the official Ubuntu packages for Zend. Searching for it on my Ubuntu 10.04 Server showed the followin packages:

libzend-framework-php                                                                  - a simple, straightforward, open-source software framework for PHP 5
zend-framework                                                                         - a simple, straightforward, open-source software framework for PHP 5
zend-framework-bin                                                                     - a simple, straightforward, open-source software framework for PHP 5
zendframework                                                                          - powerful PHP framework
zendframework-bin                                                                      - binary scripts for zendframework

Of those you need either zend-framework or zendframework - am not sure which though. Install it then using the following command:

sudo aptitude install zendframework

If you are planning to install it manually and not via apt-get or aptitude (i.e. with the offical Ubuntu packages) place it in the following folder:


That, I guess, would be the Ubuntu way for manually installed servers. If you do that you should also provide a symbolic link that points to the current version.
So if the installation would look like this


You should add a symlink called 'zend' (or whatever seems reasonable) that points to this installation.

ln -s zend-someversion-xxx zend

This has the effect that your zend installation will always be available as


even if you later upgrade to a different version. (Which would most likely change the name of the folder and screw up config...)

Thank you very much for favorite answer! – Yosef Jun 1 '10 at 22:27

I would install it from the repositories using a package manager. That way you can keep it up to date with bug fixes and security patches automatically.

I'm not sure which package you need, but the installation would be similar to:

sudo apt-get install zendframework
