Solution: Creating deb packages


You might want to create custom deb packages of your own supported eZ publish requirements.

As many distributions have poor support for PHP 4.4 branch (atm) many users find themselves installing their own software to provide PHP 4.4 or greater.


Examples of software possibly worth packaging for production server software management.

  • eZ
  • PHP
  • Apache
  • MySQL
