I get this error after finishing the Zend Installation.

Server error!

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there was an error in a CGI script.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

This isn't really a question? – Mez Jun 10 '09 at 8:49
what were you exactly doing? What do you mean by Zend Installation? Zend Framework doesn't have to be installed! – markus Jun 10 '09 at 9:02
Look in your web server logs. It might be something like mod_rewrite not being turned on. – Tom Haigh Jun 10 '09 at 9:05
Indeed, looks like an apache/web server problem – David Caunt Jun 10 '09 at 9:30

Look in your Apache error_log file for a more specific error. I would guess you haven't updated include_path so your PHP scripts aren't finding the Zend Framework classes.

Remember that the PHP CLI often uses a different php.ini file from Apache's PHP, and also you need to restart Apache to enable changes to its php.ini.

I would also add to double-check any .htaccess file that may be in ./public/
