I have a new VPS running Plesk 9.3.0 without 'much' modifications to any settings. I've moved a site to this VPS and I'm receiving a page full of random 'gibbrish' characters like:

Zend2003120702116268102798xù Ÿ2½}MŒ%ÇqæCwËg¸„ÖXXZ[ÆùÿCK¢FŠäš’(’¢-ÂÒèu¿zš6gºÇÝ=$Ec:-xá=èàƒÃ ôžL/`,¼'û$èdû$ð ›±OYïUUdfde½á›GâcWTfDdF|‘™‘QÕ_nN‡OÝ›Ÿ/ú9¾¢»"…çÎ =B³øo/=÷…?úúW?·/LX5¯ß½ ðtEÍ ãB„ð÷øìÞéåU®•òÊëZÈi^¿lN/NÎNoÞ>›/šÅC׸”šÅLËÏåùÉ+Ü á¸a6Ê÷Ž..ϯrç…Õ–)Õþñòüvsz•{å mî!F³ã[çWsÖZ%k'-ÐÝ<¬þZ1B¡¼ "-ÏîH @/Ü´b.Ï›ù"ü tb¼Ò!”]œ¼ïŠ6–Ál \Ü;½hÎOößh®^“4#…s¡CÀ†æôUèP³Ð§3¦¬“; –j‡ìþb¤÷š»¶³Wçç7÷îÜ…w•bÞs«[ÆÎav,@ÿ´ÜéÖåÌfž¯þVÚlö‹½ÎÛØå#Èoòudñ^÷чW+ÕSsÐý¹w˜7Ÿò«{ò…?<Ìo1»èZÄN_ð³»·î>qr÷Vs¾"ýµ¾§þˆ¡v Ù.j†Çï®#{îÞüÞú¿ºý²Q0âLõ$rv¥{»[à|sÝwxþðúy¯)þ • 7ÛŽ È^YËZá‘JV<|·g“l2£{µ«Ù›=é§eCÍîõÖ»ÓÖQtL´D?ε܃ÁªÇ3=ﯸ^=þAIÏjöÐÁ0¡ò¥ 2øÙŸÞçÝÊéqÔ€Lï÷*+Jo¬õLͺFøì x¨ÕìÛ'GH“æådD)ÿ:¨5¼q±¦rÖøLf“Ðj îÅõ¬éa÷[!_zöN?þ"™†á©›0Ý{ˆWóª‘ÁH4µx5+Ë^–Ž›·ÉöŠd1¹Õ¬

phpinfo() shows PHP is running on the Zend engine. This server is unmanaged so I cannot ask the hosting provider for assistance.

Any help big or small will be appreciated.

The Zend Engine is not the Zend Optimizer

you want to see something like:

This program makes use of the Zend Scripting Language Engine:
Zend Engine v2.2.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2009 Zend Technologies
    with the ionCube PHP Loader v3.3.18, Copyright (c) 2002-2010, by ionCube Ltd., and
    with Zend Optimizer v3.3.9, Copyright (c) 1998-2009, by Zend Technologies
    with Suhosin v0.9.29, Copyright (c) 2007, by SektionEins GmbH

You can download the Zend Optimizer, 3.3.9 is the most recent I believe, and install it in your php.ini file like:

[Zend]
zend_extension=/usr/lib/php5/20060613/ZendOptimizer.so

making sure you specify the correct path.

Thanks for the tip –  dallasclark May 26 '10 at 10:41

Problem was related to 1 corrupted file deep in the directory tree, took me a while to find it.
