eZ Publish 5 install from archive

eZ Publish 5 install from archive

Wednesday 21 November 2012 2:53:21 pm - 7 replies

I have install the eZ Publish 5 RC1 from the archive ( I have followed the install instructions in the file "" ).
But when I go to http://server/ezsetup, I have a 404 error page ( "Not found" ).
What could be the problem?
Thanks for your help.

Hi Frédéric

What is your Apache config ?

Wednesday 21 November 2012 3:29:05 pm

Hi Jérôme,

I use the "ezpublish5-5.0.0-rc1-ee-ttl.tar.gz" package from the Partner Portal (enterprise edition).

I run a debian 6 server with apache 2.2, php 5.3, mysql 5.1.
I haven't changed anything in the default apache config (in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf).

And I use a virtual host:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName myserver
    DocumentRoot /var/www/ezpublish5/web/
    <Directory /var/www/ezpublish5/>
        Options FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride None
    <IfModule mod_php5.c>
        php_admin_flag safe_mode Off
        php_admin_value register_globals 0
        php_value magic_quotes_gpc 0
        php_value magic_quotes_runtime 0
        php_value allow_call_time_pass_reference 0
    DirectoryIndex index.php
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
        # Uncomment in FastCGI mode, to get basic auth working.
        #RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
        # v1 rest API is on Legacy

        # If using cluster, uncomment the following two lines:

        #RewriteRule ^/var/([^/]+/)?cache/(texttoimage|public)/.* /index_cluster.php [L]
        RewriteRule ^/var/([^/]+/)?storage/images(-versioned)?/.* - [L]

        # Uncomment the following lines when using popup style debug in legacy
        #RewriteRule ^/var/([^/]+/)?cache/debug\.html.* - [L]
        # Following rule is needed to correctly display assets from eZ Publish5 / Symfony bundles
        RewriteRule ^/bundles/ - [L]
        RewriteRule .* /index.php

I have tried <Directory /var/www/ezpublish5/> and <Directory /var/www/ezpublish5/web/> but it doesn't change anything.

Mmm Are you sure your virtual host is correctly activated ?

Wednesday 21 November 2012 3:41:36 pm

I certainly do.

When I go to : http://myserver/, I am redirected to http://myserver/ezsetup which is fine.
But this page give me a 404 error page ( "Not found" ). It could also be a 403 error page ( "Forbidden" ) when I refresh.

So, the virtual host is ok. if not, It would not redirect me to http://myserver/ezsetup.

And I have added a "phpinfo.php" file in the /web folder. When I go to http://myserver/phpinfo.php, it works. So, I'm sure the virtual host is activated.

There has been some fixes on the setup wizard recently, you can try out the code from GIT if you would like to test it before final is available for download.

Well, I have followed this installation process from GIT :

And I have the exact same thing. I can access to http://myserver/ezsetup.
I have either a 403 error page or a 404 error page.

Is it normal that in the ezpublish5/web directory, there is no ./ezsetup directory ?

Well, now, it is ok. It works.

I had forgotten to change the settings of my virtual host as explained in:

I was using yesterday's virtual host...
