Introduction

Plone is 'A user-friendly and powerful open source Content Management System'. Plone is hosted by the Zope application environment. Zope will automatically be installed when you emerge Plone.

Installation

To install plone, run:

# emerge --ask plone

Configure Zope

< Zope-3.3

Create an instance of Zope:

# zope-config

Don't worry if the user exists.

To start Zope, just run:

# /etc/init.d/zope-instance start

where 'instance' is the name of your instance - this can be found using ls /etc/init.d/.

Zope should now be available at: http://localhost:8080 and http://localhost:8080/manage

>= Zope-3.3

Create an instance of Zope:

# cd /usr/lib/zope-3.3.1/bin/
# ./mkzopeinstance

As zope-config is not available, to start Zope under zope >=3.3.0 you have to use the script generated in the instance (?) [gbin: any specialist / maintainer can help us here ? thx.]

# cd /your/instance/path/bin
# ./zopectl start

Zope should now be available at: http://localhost:8080 and http://localhost:8080/manage

Configure Plone

# zprod-manager add /usr/share/zproduct/plone-2.5.3

Check all options and then restart Zope.

# /etc/init.d/zope-instance restart 

Once Zope has loaded, go to http://localhost:8080/manage and log in with the root administrator password you created before.

In the drop-down at the top right next to the Add button, select Plone site and click Add. The id you give it will be the URL to the instance, so if you give it the name plone-site, you can access it on http://localhost:8080/plone-site.

After it has installed, find the instance in the ZMI, and go to the portal_quickinstaller tool. Here, install Archetypes, MimetypeRegistry, PortalTransforms, and DocFinderTab by ticking the boxes next to them and clicking Install.

That's it! You now have a cleanly configured Zope instance, with a single Plone site set up inside it, a recent release of Archetypes and the DocFinderTab.

AddOns (Plone Products)

Here's a list of apps you may also want to emerge depending on the transforms you will need (transforms are used by some products to convert document types. i.e. generating pdf from html, or html from pdf, microsoft office documents, Oo documents,...)
