Need help with zmd error

My web server, running Open Suse 10.1 has been giving an error window every
time I open a session “ZMD does not appear to be running”. Today I checked
from a ssh session and it gives me the following :

Any ideas what is going on, and what I can do to fix it ?

Thanks for any help.

There is a troubleshooting page you could look at here : Troubleshooting zmd - openSUSE

Also make sure the service is up and running (sudo rczmd status)

Thanks for the pointer, I used the instructions there to zap the database
and re-initialize, which may have fixed the issue. Incidentally, I also
found some good zmd trouble shooting tips at
