Installing an eZ Publish bundle on Windows

This section describes how to deploy an eZ Publish bundle on a Windows based operating system.

Important note about services

When installing under Windows, you have to be sure that there are no services running/listening on port 80 and 3306 (which are the default ports for HTTP and MySQL traffic). Services listening on these ports should be stopped. If Apache or MySQL is already installed, then the installer will replace these services with the services that are included in the bundle. Existing installations of Apache and MySQL will not be deleted or removed, only the services will be stopped and replaced.

Downloading the eZ Publish bundle

The eZ Publish bundle can be downloaded from http://ez.no/download/ez_publish. The bundle for Windows (95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP) is called something like "ezpublish-3.8.x-gpl_installer.exe".

Starting the installation wizard

When installing on Windows NT, 2000 or XP, make sure you're logged in with a user that has administrator privileges (preferably the "Administrator" user). Start the install wizard by clicking on its icon (double or single click depending on your settings).

Please refer to "The setup wizard" section for more information.
