Installing Zope in a
This document describes how to install Zope into a
Create a Virtual Environment¶
$ python3.6 -m venv zope $ cd zope
If you are still using Python 2.7 install virtualenv onto your system then call:
$ virtualenv --python=python2.7 zope New python executable in zope/bin/python2.7 Installing setuptools, pip, wheel...done. $ cd zope
Make sure you use at least version
12.0.1 of virtualenv.
virtualenv --version tells you the used version number.)
Older versions install a pip version which is not compatible with the file format
requirements-full.txt used in Zope.
Install the Zope Software Packages¶
Look for the release you want to install on
https://zopefoundation.github.io/Zope/. Than use the specific
requirements-full.txt in the URL, replacing 4.0b4 in the example below:
$ bin/pip install \ -r https://zopefoundation.github.io/Zope/releases/4.0b4/requirements-full.txt Obtaining Zope ... Successfully installed ...
Creating a Zope instance¶
The following steps describe how to install a WSGI based Zope instance. If you want/have to use ZServer instead of WSGI (Python 2 only!) follow the documentation Creating a Zope instance for Zope 2.13, as it has not changed since that version.
Once you’ve installed Zope, you will need to create an “instance
home”. This is a directory that contains configuration and data for a
Zope server process. The instance home is created using the
$ bin/mkwsgiinstance -d .
You will be asked to provide a user name and password for an
administrator’s account during
mkwsgiinstance. To see the available
command-line options, run the script with the
$ bin/mkwsgiinstance --help
The -d . specifies the directory to create the instance home in.
If you follow the example and choose the current directory, you’ll
find the instances files in the subdirectories of the
etc/will hold the configuration files.
var/will hold the database files.
