All about the development of eZ Publish by Graham Brookins, 7x and Brookins Consulting.

This is just too cool for words. It’s really coming true, SQLite Database Support equal to MySQL or Oracle but drastically cheaper in cost to get started quickly. 

Have you ever wished to reduce your own database headaches with eZ Publish?

For years I’ve watched others developing with eZ and wished silently for the day when SQLite database driver support in the eZ Publish kernel and setup wizard would be generally available to end users. 

I have grown from not just dreaming but stepping up, reaching my goals and making my dreams come true with hard work.

Checkout the newly refreshed installation process. We lightly refactored the default setup wizard to provide for a completely simple database selection choice and full installation support for site package data and site configuration used when building a SQLite driven database eZ Publish website, kiosk app or other unique use cases.

With this new feature of our software eZ Publish 6.0.1 (github/main;unreleased) you on need to install PHP, PHP Extensions (required by eZ Publish which now includes the SQLite driver which is painless to install using your favorite OS package manager). As a Debian advocate I recommend APT which is a time saver in life in all things. Back to the point after php is installed you only need to install composer! That’s it! Run the php built in web server and install a full working eZ Publish installation in minutes instead of hours or potentially days. This is a big deal for people who just want to use the software without having the requirements of a full web server or database server setup just to try using the latest version.

The quickest way to get started is to install via composer using the main branch of the project version control.

Here is to a new year full of exciting developments in eZ Publish History.

I am very excited to be the first to point out that 7x has been continuously been developing and preparing for the next major release of eZ Publish version 6.0.0 via Composer via GitHub.

Work hard in silence and let success make the noise.

As a result of our recent collaboration with Share eZ Publish! Partner ZWEBB we are in the process of testing and distributing the bug fixes needed to successfully install eZ Publish with PHP 8.3 the latest release of the software that powers most of the web.

Install 7x eZ Publish 6.0alpha1 from composer today and provide feedback on your own experience.

You won’t regret this decision.

Update: On Christmas Day we found the last key blocking bugs and fixed them for a much more stable alpha Christmas Day release from our main branch on github or our monthly branch 2023.12 and tag 2023.12.05. Read the release announcements and join the discussions.
