Installing on Linux

Although it is offered under the title Get Plone for Linux/BSD/Unix, the Unified Installer is meant to install Plone on any Unix work-alike operating system. It's been tested on all of the common varieties of Linux, FreeBSD and OpenBSD, Mac OS X, and Solaris 10.

The Unified Installer is actually a source installation kit. It bundles together the source code for Plone and all of Plone's major dependencies, along with a shell script that builds and configures the components. Using it to install Plone is often as simple as downloading the kit, unpacking it, and issuing a single command. You will need to be comfortable with opening a terminal (or shell) session and issuing shell commands.
