Requirements for doing an automated installation

The requirements for an automated installation are the same as for the normal installation method. Please refer to the "Requirements for doing a normal installation" page for more information.

At the minimum, a web server, a PHP engine, and a database server must be installed. Additional server-side software is only necessary if the kick-start configuration file instructs the system to make use of such software. For example, "ImageMagick" has to be available if it has been specified as the primary image manipulation solution.

New requirements since version 4.5

In order to do an offline installation with the use of kickstart.ini, all required files must be downloaded from and extracted to var/storage/packages/eZ-systems

index.xml ezwebin_site.ezpkg ezwt_extension.ezpkg ezgmaplocation_extension.ezpkg ezstarrating_extension.ezpkg ezwebin_classes.ezpkg ezwebin_democontent.ezpkg ezwebin_design_blue.ezpkg ezwebin_design_cleangray.ezpkg ezwebin_design_gray.ezpkg ezwebin_extension.ezpkg ezwebin_banners.ezpkg

index.xml ezflow_site.ezpkg ezwt_extension.ezpkg ezgmaplocation_extension.ezpkg ezstarrating_extension.ezpkg ezwebin_extension.ezpkg ezflow_classes.ezpkg ezflow_democontent.ezpkg ezflow_design.ezpkg ezflow_extension.ezpkg

The following extraction method is used for each .ezpkg:

  1. Create a new directory with the same name, except for the .ezpkg suffix
  2. Extract the .ezpkg file into it's directory with "tar -xzf"

Note that the index.xml file should be stored to var/storage/packages/eZ-systems

The next section explains how eZ Publish can be configured to do an automated installation of itself.
