Is /var/lib/zope2.8/instance/plone-site/Products the directory where the
other Zope/Plone products are also located or does it just contain ZCO
and PrimaGIS? If the answer is yes to the latter, then you should check
your zope.conf (probably
at /var/lib/zope2.8/instance/plone-site/etc/zope.conf) and look for a
line that defines the location of the products directory, something like
to see whether /var/lib/zope2.8/instance/plone-site/Products is defined
there. Zope should by default read the "Products" directory within your
instance home, but you could try adding your directory explicitly, e.g.
Another thing you can try is running Zope with the "runzope" script to
see if it gives any additional information about (not) finding the
You could also just copy the "ZCO" and "PrimaGIS" directories where ever
your other products are located (CMFPlone etc.)
Hope this helps!
