Supermarket Belongs to the Community

zendserver_extension - Enabling/disabling extensions

In your cookbook, in a recipe:

include_recipe "zendserver"

zendserver_extension "mongo" do
    action :enable
    notifies :restart, 'service[zend-server]'

To enable many extensions without repeating the code block:
include_recipe "zendserver"

["mongo", "memcached", "mssql"].each do |ext|
zendserver_extension ext do
action :enable
notifies :restart, 'service[zend-server]'

Notice the notification - By default the action will not restart the server, the recommended way to restart is to add the notification (They will be queued up, and only one restart will occur at the end).

zendserver_directive - Set ini directive values

In your wrapper cookbook, use in a recipe:

include_recipe "zendserver"

zendserver_directive "error_reporting" do
  value "E_ALL"
  notifies :restart, 'service[zend-server]'

You probably want to set more directives, so it's reasonable to define a hash of directives in a role, environment or default attributes and set them in one go like this:

Set the attributes:

  "default_attributes": {
    "zendserver": {
      "directives": {
        "error_reporting": "E_ALL",
        "display_errors": "0",
        "display_startup_errors": "0"

Use the attributes hash to set the directives:

include_recipe "zendserver"

node[:zendserver][:directives].each do |d, v|
  zendserver_directive d do
    value v
    notifies :restart, 'service[zend-server]'
