Website interface 1.9 upgrade


Before starting the Website Interface upgrading process make sure that you have a working backup of the existing website state including database, extensions, INI settings, etc. During the upgrade process the existing "Website Interface" extension will be removed and replaced with a new version.


Download following packages from http://packages.ez.no/ezpublish/4.6/4.6.0:

Go to the packages management interface in the "Administration Interface". This can be done via the "Setup-tab", where you can click on the "Packages"-link in the left menu:

The package management screen

From the Repository drop-down box choose eZ-system then click “Change repository” button. From the list of available packages remove following packages:

Next change repository again to the “eZ-systems” and click on “Import new package” button. In the next view select "ezwebin_extension" and click “Import package” button. Once the "ezwebin_extension" is imported click on “Install package”. In the next view choose “Replace extension” option and click “Continue” button. Repeat these steps for rest of new extensions ("ezstarrating_extension", "ezgmaplocation_extension" and "ezwt_extension").

Once all new extensions are imported they need to be activated under the [ExtensionSettings] block in the "settings/site.ini.append.php":


Autoload update

Next the autoload array needs to be updated for the new extensions. In order to do so, execute following command from eZ Publish root folder:

$ php bin/php/ezpgenerateautoloads.php -e -p

Content classes

Website Interface 1.9 does not provide any new content classes.

Database changes

Note: The database changes below for eZ Flow, eZ GMAP Location and eZ StarRating are only related to Postgre SQL setups.

For eZ GMAP Location (for Postgre SQL only):

ALTER INDEX ezgml_latitude_longitude_key RENAME TO latitude_longitude_key;

For eZ StarRating (for Postgre SQL only):

ALTER INDEX ezsr_data_user_id_session_key RENAME TO user_id_session_key;
ALTER INDEX ezsr_data_contentobject_id_contentobject_attribute_id
RENAME TO contentobject_id_contentobject_attribute_id;

INI settings

Update" settings/siteaccess/(public_site_name)/design.ini.append.php" and replace old settings with new ones:


Note: The settings above have not changed from 4.5, so unless you upgrade from 4.4, you don't need to change these settings. Check them, however. Better safe than sorry!

Clear Cache

Once the upgrade script is done, you need to clear the cache by executing following command from eZ Publish root folder:

php bin/php/ezcache.php --clear-all --purge
