Automated installation

This part of the 4.x documentation is for eZ Publish 4.0, only reference section is common for all eZ Publish 4.x versions as well as eZ Publish 5.x "LegacyStack", please select the version you are using for the most up to date documentation!

The automated installation method (also known as "kickstart") is for experienced users. It provides an automated version of the "Normal installation method" and is designed for system administrators who wish to roll out pre-configured installations of eZ Publish. This method requires minimum interaction with the web based setup wizard and thus it can be used to rapidly deploy eZ Publish on a massive scale. This method has the same requirements as the "Normal installation" method. A typical automated installation process consists of the following steps:

  • Setting up / creating a database
  • Downloading a packaged eZ Publish distribution
  • Unpacking the eZ Publish distribution
  • Configuring the "kickstart.ini" file
  • Initiating the web based setup wizard

Once the web based setup wizard has completed, eZ Publish will be ready for use.
