I can't help too much with your installation issue (I didn't have any
problems with the universal installer), but I went through (er... am
still going through) the same problem with the seeming lack of good
documentation. When you get a working plone site, I might be able to
give you some specific pointers on where to look. <br>
I've got a 3-ring binder of printouts of tutorials, chapters from
online books, references, etc and as I read and reread things, try what
works, watch videos from the last Plone conf, etc, etc... the pieces
are falling into place... but it hasn't been exceedingly forthcoming,
to put it lightly :) <br>
I hope the doccom sprint is as productive as it sounds :D<br>

<pre wrap="">Hi all -
Regarding my attempt to install and configure Plone for the first time -
Plunging ahead, I used the Plone 2.5.3 unified unix installer from
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://plone.org/products/plone">http://plone.org/products/plone</a>. Installation went fine, the server starts
fine, and I can log into the manager using the generated admin password. I
even figured out how to change the admin password.
What next? I figured that the definitive Plone book referenced on the
trizpug website would tell me exactly what to do... but it doesn't.
Unfortunately, it has several bold warnings like this:
"This book is out of date and is not being updated. The examples may or
may not work. For more information see
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://www.agmweb.ca/plone/book/unsupported.html">http://www.agmweb.ca/plone/book/unsupported.html</a>"
Attempting to read and follow the directions anyway, I see that the
disclaimer is no joke. The book really is out of date. I can't even get off
of the dime and "add" a Plone site, because "Plone Site" doesn't show up in
the dropdown list. Poking around it seems like Plone is installed in the
The FAQs and HowTos at plone.org didn't get me over this hump.
The Tutorials at <a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://learnplone.org/documentation/tutorial">http://learnplone.org/documentation/tutorial</a> assume the
Plone site has already been set up by someone who knows what he is doing.
So I'm laying this project aside till I can get some help.
Can some kind person can point me to more recent/complete docs? (Now I
understand the need for boot camps and such...)
Thanks, and have a great 4th!

<pre wrap="">Hi friends -
I'm finally taking the plunge and installing Plone on my home Linux server
to set up a family website.
Which immediately posed a question - Which versions of Plone and Zope do I
install? Since I have no legacy sites nor data to worry about, I'd like to
use the latest versions reasonable. But this page:
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://plone.org/documentation/faq/plone-versions">http://plone.org/documentation/faq/plone-versions</a>
doesn't even mention Plone 3.0!
Advice? (I figure this is the place to ask...)
