While some details may still apply in specific situations, this page was written for packages of TYPO3 that are no longer current. In particular, the ebuilds haven't been updated since 2006.

Manual to Install with webapp-config


Step by step instructions

It is recommended that you use a portage overlay in /etc/make.conf. If you have no portage overlay defined yet, add "PORTDIR_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage" to make.conf and create the directory.

After this, create the directory:

 mkdir -p /usr/local/portage

The overlay directory will not be touched by a "emerge sync" therefore it is a good place for ebuilds that are not in the official portage.

Download the latest Typo3_ebuild.tar.gz file _deprecated_

First check for the latest ebuilds. Download the latest typo3_ebuild.tar.gz file, extract it to your portage overlay.

 cd /usr/local/
 tar xzfv /path/to/latest/typo3_ebuild.tar.gz

Download the last ebuild via rsync _new_

rsync -av /path/to/your/portage_overlay

Optional: Integrated with rsync system _new_

Install package "gentoolkit-dev".

 emerge gentoolkit-dev

Edit/Create "/etc/gensync/typo3.syncsource" to contain the following:

description="typo3 Portage Overlay"

Syncronize portage overlay:

 gensync typo3

Install gd

Typo3 will be happy with a gd that has gif support. Also edit the /etc/make.conf file and search in the file for USE="...". Here you only need to add "gif" in this line. It is also nice to have "jpeg png truetype" in your USE="..." After this install gd with gif support with the command.

 emerge media-libs/gd

Install ImageMagick-4.2.9 _deprecated_

Now you can start the installation of ImageMagick-4.2.9 with:

 emerge =imagemagick-4.2.9

Install lang_php with gd support

Since version 4.1.0 and higher PHP comes with a gd version. If you want to use an external gd version (and we will) you must add "gd-external" to your USE flags in make.conf. Also go ahead and add this to your make.conf. Build mod_php with external gd support by the following command.

 emerge dev-lang/php

Installing the TYPO3_src package

First of all you need to install the typo3_src package! If you have "~x86" in your make.conf you can use one of the following commands.

 emerge typo3_src


 emerge =typo3_src-3.8.1

If ou don't have ~x86 in your make.conf.

ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge typo3_src


ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge =typo3_src-3.8.1

Now you also need to install the typo3_src to your vhost e.g. localhost Go on with the install of the typo3_src for your vhost with webapp-config

 webapp-config -I --dir /temp --host localhost --virtual-dirs server-owned --virtual-files server-owned typo3_src 3.8.1

Install one package

Install one of typo3_dummy, typo3_testsite or typo3_quickstart. Emerge the package you need and install it with webapp-config to the directory you like.

 webapp-config -I --dir / --host localhost --virtual-dirs server-owned --virtual-files server-owned typo3_quickstart 3.8.1

Enable the TYPO3 Install Tool

This will be done by the ebuild.

Start apache and mysql

If apache and mysql is not already started, do this now.

 /etc/init.d/apache start
 /etc/init.d/mysql start

Using the 1-2-3 Install Tool

  • In the first step, you have to enter your MySQL user name, the password and the host name of the database server. Because it's all on the same machine, you should enter localhost as the host name.
  • Step 2 you need to create a database. Enter a new name and click "Update localconf.php"
  • Step 3 is for importing the data into the database. After doing that (select database.sql from the pull down and click on ?Import database«) you should click on ?Continue to configure TYPO3 (Recommended)« and proceed with this tutorial.

You're done!

The last thing you have to do is to click on "1: Basic Configuration", scroll down and check if everything is successfully installed. In the middle of this page you will find one option "Search for ImageMagick:" with a field: "Check this path for ImageMagick installation:" here try the path for ImageMagick-4.2.9 (e.g. /usr/local/ImageMagick-4.2.9) and click send. After this update your locallang.conf and take a look at "4: All Configuration"

That's it. You should now have a working TYPO3 installation! You can start by logging in to the TYPO3-Back end of your installation with a web browser with user:admin and password:password. Change this as soon as possible.
