Installation packages (tarballs)
Install webEdition offline using the installation archives (.tar.gz), also known as "tarball installation". It is advisable to extract the tarball directly on the server since uploading thousands of files via ftp will be very slow. In this case we recommend using the Online Installer. All stable releases (starting with version 220.127.116.11) are to be found in the directory releases
and are named "
Applications are only supported since 18.104.22.168 until 7.0.3, newer versions DO NOT SUPPORT applications! Download and place the tgz-file in the /webEdition/apps or in an /appinstall (created by webEdition) directory. Start the toolfactory to install the application. They can be found in frontend
for Backend applications .
In the directory old
you may find some older and unsupported installation packages, but we recommend not to use them in production environments. They are provided only for upgrading installations of older webEdition versions to a current 6.x version by using the webEdition Online Update feature (this feature is currently only available for webEdition 5.x and newer).
In the directory old-documentation
you may find some older and unsupported documentation to version 3,4 and 5.
