Ezpublish 4.6 and Debian 7 ?

Tuesday 13 January 2015 6:27:36 pm - 3 replies



It seems that ezpublish 4.6 is only supported on debian 6 and not on debian 7. ( ), however debian 6 is going to be deprecated.

Do you know if it's possible to install ezpublish 4.x on debian 7? 

What kind of problems may we encounter ?

Thanks for your help.

Hello Le Franck,

The key here is the older versions of ezpublish depends on specific php version support.

Which version of php would you use with Debian 7?

Debian 7 seems to provide php with version 5.4.36-0+deb7u3


You will probably need to upgrade ezpublish (to the latest community release) when you upgrade to Debian 7.

After that you should have no problems.

I hope this helps!

Thanks for your answer.


The version of php in debian 7 is :5.4.36-0+deb7u3

in debian 6 :5.3.3-7+squeeze19

Ezpublish 4.6 requires php 5.3.x 

Does that mean that ezpublish 4.6 won't work in debian 7 because of php' version ?

Is there someone who has checked if it works or not in debian 7 ?


Thanks in advance for your help

Let me turn it up for you and make it absolutely clear.

You absolutely must upgrade to the latest community release.

Without question, hesitation or doubt. blunk.gif Emoticon

Hint: It has nothing to do with what version of debian you use. It is specifically a php version support issue and eZ Publish 4.6 just can not handle php 5.4. If you do not upgrade ezpublish ... the admin will not work at all and user siteaccess will also break in key areas. The php support for 5.4 is simply missing in 'core' of eZ Publish 4.6 and most of eZ Publish breaks when you ignore the upgrade and the site just won't work.

My 10 years of eZ Publish experience backs this warning. You should listen to Heath he knew what he was talking about when he replied.
