Release notes - eZ Publish 5 Comunity Project 2012.12

Installation of eZ Publish 5

  • This is the third "eZ Publish 5" build, that comprises an eZ Publish 4.x build, under the 'ezpublish_legacy' folder, at the root of your eZ Publish 5 installation. We highly recommend, however, to get acquainted with the brand new eZ Publish 5 stack :),
  • The upgrade procedure below must be applied to the latter, then the normal installation procedure for the eZ Publish 5 stack must be followed, 
  • Make sure to follow the Virtual Host based installation procedure in the latter to initiate the setup wizard.

If you are not sure what this means, have a look at the announcement from The Community Project Board.


Resources, documentation & rendez-vous to discuss

We have also been speaking at:

Last, but not least: the eZ Publish 5 documentation still is under construction, but improvements were made since 2012.11. You can find it here:, notably the Cookbook for developers. Feedback appreciated on this too.

Known issues

  • When trying to sign-in, through the 5.x stack, you will encounter an issue if you are running PHP 5.4 or above.
  • The final screen of the installation wizard still requires you to enter information to be able to finalize the installation. We will make this an opt-in step, as discussed here.
