Zend Studio Unexpectedly Quit Fix

Filed under: General Linux,Linux Software — TheLinuxBlog.com at 6:43 am on Monday, January 21, 2008

Zend Studio is a really good PHP IDE for Linux well worth the money. Although it has a high price tag this doesn’t mean that its bug free. I some times have little quirks with it but they seem to have been fixed since I added more ram. Anyway recently while I was trying to use Zend it just would not open. I had to use another PHP IDE on my Linux box until I could figure out the problem. Well, the problem was:

This Application has Unexpectedly Quit: Invocation of this Java Application has caused an InvocationTargetException. This application will now exit. (LAX)

Reinstalling Zend does not fix the issue. The issue seems to be in the configuration directory. All you have to do to fix this issue is:

rm -r ZDE

I’d make a back up first if I were you, just incase, but mine was broken and I didn’t really have anything in the config directory except some saved urls so I just deleted it. Now my Zend Studio works like it used to again! Hurray!, Now I hope it wont do this again for another 6 months or so.

I’ve added some advertising to this blog to help offset the cost of running the server, I hope you guys don’t mind too much.

Every so often I see a banner ad for a product I once stumbled across on the net once. The product is Bomgar and they basically specialize in remote support appliances. I was interested in this product because they actually support major Linux distributions – now that is neat!

Basically in a nutshell your client goes to your website and clicks a button it installs temporary software on their computer and you get to support it, there are a ton more features that are in nifty flash animations on their site. Did I mention that it runs on major Linux distributions? That is a great feature in my opinion, they have support for SUSE, Ubuntu, Fedora and Red Hat. Impressive. If you currently support a Linux network this could be a great little box. Its a little pricey but in my opinion the cost may be worth it for the ability to easily support Linux boxes. I’d like to support a company that sees the need for enterprise Linux solutions.

I would like to see an open source solution that is similar to this but doesn’t have the price tag. If you know of one, let me know!
