How to install Plone 5.2.10 in Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS using Unified Installer

In this blog, we are going to discuss how to install a Plone 5.2.10 instance in Ubuntu 22.04.1, follow the guide step by step,

Step 1: Get the unified Installer package using the command.

 wget https://launchpad.net/plone/5.2/5.2.10/+download/Plone-5.2.10-UnifiedInstaller-1.0.tgz

Step 2: Extract the .tgz file

 tar -xf Plone-5.2.10-UnifiedInstaller-1.0.tgz Plone-5.2.10-UnifiedInstaller-1.0/

Step 3: Change the directory to the extracted folder

 Cd Plone-5.2.10-UnifiedInstaller-1.0.tgz Plone-5.2.10-UnifiedInstaller-1.0/

Step 4: The installation of the necessary packages for Python3 can be done using the following code:

 sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev-is-python3 libjpeg-dev libxslt-dev python3.8-dev
 sudo apt install python3.8-venv

Step 5: now run the install.sh script to run the installer


Step 6: Choose The Basic Configuration 


Step 7: Set the target directory for installation


Step 8: Set an administrative password (you can changethis later in url_to_my_zope_root_folder/acl_users/users/manage_users)


Step 9: Open the terminal from the ‘zinstance’ in the installed directory and run the below command to run buildout


Buildout assembles all the eggs (python package), with the correct version requirements to solve all dependencies. This doesn't affect the system python packages at all.

Step 10: Now, from the terminal, run the command given below to start the instance

./bin/instance start

The instance will start to serve on http://localhost:8080/


Other commands :

 ./bin/instance fg (Used for development purposes, as it serves the complete live log of the running instance, the user may experience slow performance)

 ./bin/instance start (To start the instance)

 ./bin/instance stop (To stop the instance)

 ./bin/instance debug (used to debug the instance)

 ./bin/instance run myscript.py (used to run custom.py files)
