Have you checked the error-logs? On a standard install they should be in
something like /var/log/koha and have names like koha-error_log,
koha-zebradaemon-output.log, koha-opac-error_log, koha-zebraqueue.err,
koha-zebradaemon.err, koha-zebraqueue-output.log (I think some of those are
"non-standard" and have to be turned on actively.) You might get some idea of
where the trouble is by looking at the end of these files.
I had the same problem on a recent install, and the solution turned out to be
that I was running zebra as a user named koha, while some of the necesarry
files were owned by root. The solution was to run a command like
$ chown -R koha:koha /var/koha/*
to change the ownership of the necessary files.
