To install LeMill you need:

  • Plone 2.5
  • either Zope 2.8.7 or Zope 2.9.3
  • Python 2.4
  • (PloneTestCase for running the unit tests)

LeMill is not a normal Plone product that can be just plugged into any Plone instance. LeMill is an *extension profile* which means it customizes all aspects of a Plone instance. You cannot run LeMill as part of a normal Plone instance, but rather you need an exclusive instance for LeMill. Here's what you need to do:

  1. Download the archive
  2. Extract the package into Zope's Products folder
  3. Restart Zope
  4. Using ZMI create a new Plone instance to a suitable location, and select "LeMill site" as the extension profile.


To upgrade from an earlier version of LeMill (starting from version 0.3, which is the first supported version), you need to:

  • Extract the new version into Zope's Products folder and restart Zope
  • Either customize and run the docs/ script, or manually do the following in ZMI:
    • Go to your LeMill instance(s), and:
      • (If you upgraded your Plone as well, in portal_migration go to Migrate, and upgrade your Plone instance)
      • In portal_quickinstaller reinstall LeMill
      • In portal_migration go to Setup and update the "LeMill site" customization policy
      • In portal_workflow run "Update security settings"
      • In archetypes tool run "Update schema"
      • In portal_catalog, go to "Advanced" tab and run "Update catalog"
  • Done!
