What is eZ Platform Enterprise Edition?

eZ Platform Enterprise Edition is commercial CMS (Content Management System) software developed by eZ Systems.

eZ Platform Enterprise Edition derives from eZ Platform. It is composed of a set of bundles. eZ Platform Enterprise Edition, like eZ Platform, is built on top of the Symfony framework (Full Stack). It has been in development since 2014.

How to get access to eZ Platform Enterprise Edition?

While this meta repository, ezplatform-ee, is public to ease installation and upgrades, full access can be obtained in one of three ways:

eZ Platform Enterprise Edition vs. eZ Platform

eZ Platform Enterprise Edition is a distribution flavor of eZ Platform, our Symfony-based enterprise level open source CMS. In short, Enterprise comes with addtional features and services that extend eZ Platform functionality for media industry and team collaboration.

Further information:

eZ Platform is 100% open source and is the foundation for the commercial eZ Platform Enterprise Edition software which adds advanced features for editorial teams, 100% built on top of eZ Platform APIs.


NOTE: For simplified installation, consider using community supported eZ Launchpad which takes care of the whole server setup for you.

Installation instructions below are for installing a clean installation of eZ Platform Enterprise Edition in latest version with no demo content or demo website. Full installation documentation is in the online docs. It includes instructions on installing other distributions (like ezplatform "clean" and ezplatform-ee-demo enterprise edition), or other versions.


These instructions assume you have already installed:

  • PHP (7.3 or higher)
  • Web Server (Recommended: Apache / Nginx. Use of PHP's built-in development server is also possible)
  • Database server (MySQL 5.5+ or MariaDB 10.0+)
  • Composer
  • Git (for development)

For further information on requirements see online doc.

Install eZ Platform (clean enterprise distribution)

Assuming you have prerequisites sorted out, you can get the install up and running with the following commands in your terminal:

composer create-project --keep-vcs ezsystems/ezplatform-ee ezplatform ^2
cd ezplatform

Note: If composer is installed locally instead of globally, the first command will start with php composer.phar.

During the installation process you will be asked to input things like database host name, login, password, etc. They will be placed in <ezplatform>/app/config/parameters.yml.

Next you will receive instructions on how to install data into the database, and how to run a simplified dev server using the bin/console server:run command. Tip: For a more complete and better performing setup using Apache or Nginx, read up on how to install eZ Platform manually.

Backwards compatibility

eZ Platform aims to be 100% content compatible with eZ Publish 5.x, 4.x and 3.x (introduced in 2002), meaning that content in those versions of the CMS can be upgraded using online documentation to eZ Platform.

Unlike eZ Publish Platform 5.x, eZ Platform does not ship with eZ Publish Legacy (4.x). But this is available by optional installing LegacyBridge to allow eZ Platform and eZ Publish Legacy to run together, this is only recommended for migration use cases and not for new installations.
