eZ Platform Demo


Build Status Downloads Latest release License

What is eZ Platform ?

eZ Platform is a 100% open source professional CMS (Content Management System) developed by eZ Systems and the eZ Community.

Current eZ Platform v2 is the 7th generation of eZ Publish, it is built on top of the Symfony 3.4LTS framework (Full Stack). It has been in development since 2011, and integral part of the eZ Publish Platform 5.x as "Platform stack" since 2012.

What is eZ Platform Demo ?

eZ Platform Demo is an example of a simple website using eZ Platform. This demo should not be use for starting a new project, but can serve as as an example for how to do it.


  • Blog
  • Gallery
  • Contact Form


NOTE: For simplified installation, consider using eZ Launchpad which takes care of the whole server setup for you.

Installation instructions below are for installing a demo installation of eZ Platform in latest version with demo content and demo website. Full installation documentation is kept current in the online docs, and includes instructions on installing other distributions (like ezplatform "clean" and ezplatform-ee enterprise edition), or other versions.


These instructions assume you have already installed:

  • PHP (7.1 or higher)
  • Web Server (Recommeneded: Apache / Nginx. Use of php's built in development server is also possible)
  • Database server (MySQL 5.5+ or MariaDB 10.0+)
  • Composer
  • Git (for development)

For further information on requirements see online doc.

Install eZ Platform (demo distribution)

Assuming you have prerequisites sorted out, you can get the install up and running with the following commands in your terminal:

composer create-project --keep-vcs ezsystems/ezplatform-demo ezplatform ^2
cd ezplatform

Note: If composer is installed localy instead of globally, the first command will start with php composer.phar.

During the installation process you will be asked to input things like database host name, login, password, etc. They will be placed in <ezplatform>/app/config/parameters.yml.

Next you will receive instructions on how to install data into the database, and how to run a simplified dev server using the bin/console server:run command. Tip: For a more complete and better performing setup using Apache or Nginx, read up on how to install eZ Platform manually.

Backwards compatibility

eZ Platform aims to be 100% content compatible with eZ Publish 5.x, 4.x and 3.x (introduced in 2002), meaning that content in those versions of the CMS can be upgraded using online documentation to eZ Platform.

Unlike eZ Publish Platform 5.x, eZ Platform does not ship with eZ Publish Legacy (4.x). But this is available by optional installing LegacyBridge to allow eZ Platform and eZ Publish Legacy to run together, this is only recommended for migration use cases and not for new installations.
