Doc on eZ software architecture

Doc on eZ software architecture

Thursday 26 January 2012 4:43:13 pm - 5 replies

Hi,

Hoping that this is the right forum to post, I'd like to know where to start learning about the project's software architecture, the modules, file system structure and database organization. I've been driven to eZ by its functional promises and, as it seems to match our activity requirements, I need to thoroughly understand its guts so that to use it the best and, if possible, contribute to its spread over.

I need to have that understanding in order to be able to install it in different environments, including shared hosting, and project right usage.

Thanks!

Hi Ginger,

Did you check doc.ez.no?

Thanks Ivo, that's it!

Quick question: I have to install the package on a Debian distro with PHP 2.17. What version should I download? Since I install it on a hosted shared server, would the subdomain -> eZ_install_directory assignment play the role of by-default-setting-up a virtual server locally?

eZ Publish requires PHP >= 5.2.14 so you can downloads the latest one.

And I'm afraid, I did not understand the last question sad.gif Emoticon

I presume you mean PHP 5.2.17 ? It should be good. 

eZ can work in simple directory (e.g. your.domain.com/some_folder_in_webroot ) or in virtual host mode ( your.domain.com ), although I always go with the virtual host setup.

Thanks gents, that's fine.

Sorry for type, it was 5.2.17.

For the virtual host, yes, in fact the hosting companies automatically create a virtual host with new subdomain, but you are right, it was a finger itch from me happy.gif Emoticon ...

So far so good, everything seems to be in place to go ahead!
