Info
titleInstalling eZ Platform?

This page covers install of eZ Publish 5.x (including community versions like v2014.11), for eZ Platform see INSTALL.md bundled with the installation.

The normal installation method is the most common and recommended way of deploying eZ Publish. It requires a system which already has the proper environment installed, most notably a web server and a database. The necessary requirements are explained in detail within the next section. A typical normal installation process consists of the following steps:

  • Setting up / creating a database
  • Downloading a packaged eZ Publish distribution
  • Unpacking the eZ Publish distribution
  • Prepare the extracted files
  • (optional) Configure a VirtualHost
  • Initiating and going through the web based setup wizard at http://<your-host-name>/ezsetup
  • (optional) Set up cronjobs for eZ Publish

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

The "Installing eZ Publish on a Linux/-UNIX based system" and "Installing eZ Publish on Windows" sections (depending on the target OS) will take you through the necessary steps.
