Plone 5: Unified Installer

The Plone Unified Installer is a source-installation kit that installs Plone and its dependencies from source on most Unix-like platforms. The kit includes Plone and Zope and will download components like Python if needed. Python is installed in a way that will not change or interfere with your system Python.

Important: Back up your existing Plone site prior to running the installer or running buildout to update.

Features

  • checks for needed dependencies
  • choose between zeo and standalone install
  • choose between user and root install
  • create system user and group for running plone
  • and more

For a full list of features, please check http://docs.plone.org/manage/installing/installation.html#installing-plone-using-the-unified-unix-installer.

Installation

Download the Installer:

$ wget --no-check-certificate https://launchpad.net/plone/5.0/5.0.6/+download/Plone-5.0.6-UnifiedInstaller.tgz

Extract the downloaded file:

$ tar -xf Plone-5.0.6-UnifiedInstaller.tgz

Go the folder containing installer script:

$ cd Plone-5.0.6-UnifiedInstaller

Run script:

$ ./install.sh $OPTION

If you run the installer with no option arguments, it will ask a series of questions about basic options.

For a full list of options, many of which are not available via the dialog questions, use:

$ ./install.sh --help

Note

For certain production install options you will have to run the installer with sudo or as root. This is generally not necessary when building development or evaluation systems.
