Mobile development requirements

Updating from Zend Studio 10.x

  • Since Zend Studio 10.5 release we provide Mac OS X 64-bit packages only. This means there will be no updates available for 32-bit Zend Studio on  Mac OS X. A new installation of 64-bit Zend Studio is required. Existing workspaces can be used with new 64-bit installation.

  • This version is backward compatible with all 10.x versions. To update add two new update sites in Help -> Install New Software -> Available Update Sites:

    and select Help -> Check for updates.

Migrating to Zend Studio 10.6

  • Zend Studio 10.6 starts with a default workspace: /Zend/workspaces/DefaultWorkspace10 

Known Issues

  • ZendDebugger does not support thread-safe mode.

  • Debug session is not started for both debugging an application and debug mode enabled against OpenShift target with zend-6.1 cartridge.

  • Zend Studio Crashes with Segmentation Fault in KDE 4.11, see

  • Zend Studio menus do not show or appear only partially in the menu bar of Ubuntu 13.10 and 14.04. The issue is caused by Ubuntu's bug See

  • Using Zend Studio's built-in PHP 5.5 binaries with Xdebug may be problematic on Windows and MacOS.

  • To display class inheritance charts in the documentation generated by PHPDocumentor installation of Graphviz is required. Due to compatibility issues, please install 

    • Graphviz version 2.30.1 on Mountain Lion
    • Graphviz version 2.28.0 on Windows and other Mac OS X distributions


  • Running mobile project as Web Mobile application (or using 'Preview Mode' of mobile drag & drop editor) on Windows requires Internet Explorer 'Access data sources across domains' option enabled:

    • Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options -> Security tab -> Security level ->
    • Custom level -> Miscellaneous -> Access data sources across domains -> Enable -> OK -> Apply
  • Due to Zend's contribution of PHP Code Formatter to opensource Eclipse PDT project the namespace of custom formatter preferences has changed and settings exported from/created with Zend Studio 10.0.1 will not work out of the box in Zend Studio >= 10.1.0.


    • Export Formatter Profile using Studio 10.0.1 and replace all occurrences of "com.zend" by "org.eclipse" in the exported XML file before importing it into Zend Studio >= 10.1.0.
  • Cloud Connected Mobile project on IBM i: Due to a limitation in the rewrite module of the IBM i Apache, rewrite rules that enables pretty URLs will not work out of the box. For example, instead of using:

    • http://server.address/appname/getCustomers one would have to use:
    • http://server.address/appname/index.php/getCustomers


    • Manually enable pretty URLs by adding a RewriteBase statement to the .htaccess file, right below RewriteEngine On. For example for the case above:

      RewriteEngine On
      RewriteBase /appname
  • Cloud Connected Mobile project works out-of-the box only when deployed to Apache server (.htaccess based configuration). Running Cloud Connected Mobile project on IIS Server requires URL Rewrite module with imported rules from .htaccess file.

  • The default Apache 'Server API CGI/FastCGI' mode on Windows does not forward the 'Authorization' request header; this will cause the Zend Server Gateway Authentication step to fail. 


    • Uncomment the following two lines in the public/.htaccess file of Cloud Connected Mobile project:

      RewriteCond %{HTTP:Authorization} ^(.*)
      RewriteRule .* - [e=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%1]
  • Using Android Development Toolkit (ADT) on Linux x86-64 requires installation of additional libraries:

    • Ubuntu:

      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
      sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++6
    • Fedora:

      sudo yum install redhat-lsb.i686
  • Several issues reported when installing Zend Toolbar on Linux Ubuntu and Fedora with Mozilla Firefox browser. As a workaround, download and install the browser extension from:
