Plone Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies Plone-5.2.5-UnifiedInstaller-1.0.tgz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Plone 5.2: Unified Installer

Language: English | Portuguese(Brazil)

The Plone Unified Installer installs Plone and its dependencies from source on most Unix-like platforms and Windows 10.

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.


  • Checks for needed dependencies
  • Choose between zeo and standalone install
  • Choose between user and root install
  • Create system user and group for running plone

For a full list of features, please check the documentation.


Windows users: please see the separate Windows Instructions.

Download the Installer:

wget --no-check-certificate

Extract the downloaded file:

tar -xf Plone-5.2.5-UnifiedInstaller-1.0.tgz

Go the folder containing installer script:

cd Plone-5.2.5-UnifiedInstaller-1.0

Run script:


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

The installer will search the system path for Python 2.7 and Python 3.x executables that are candidates for creating your installation. If you wish to specify a particular Python executable, use:

./ --with-python=/usr/bin/python3 [other options]

Substituting the path to your Python 2.7 or 3.5+.

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

./ --help


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.
