Manual installation on a Linux/UNIX based system

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 requirements for doing a manual installation must be met. Please read the previous section if you're not sure about the requirements. Proceed only if you have access to a UNIX based environment with Apache, PHP, MySQL or PostgreSQL already installed and running. As mentioned earlier, the database server may run on a different computer than the web server. A manual installation consists of the following steps:

  • Setting up a database (MySQL or PostgreSQL)
  • Downloading eZ Publish
  • Unpacking eZ Publish
  • Manual configuration of eZ Publish

The only difference between a normal and a manual installation is the last step. Instead of running the web based setup wizard, eZ Publish is manually configured by editing a couple of files. The first three steps are explained under the "Installing eZ Publish on a Linux/UNIX based system" section. The last step is explained under the "Manual configuration of eZ Publish" section.
