The Plone universal installer ships with its own Python and Zope
installation. As a result the installation procedure for our
Zope DA has to be adapted to the Plone setup.

The following assumes that you are using the unified Plone 3.1
installer and its default standalone configuration.

For a Plone 3.1 standalone installation:

cd /opt/Plone-3.1/

# Unzip the mxODBC Zope DA ZIP file in the instance directory
unzip -d zinstance/parts/instance \

# Move the product package into place
mv zinstance/parts/instance/lib/python/Products/mxODBCZopeDA \

# Remove the no longer needed Products/ directory to avoid
# confusion
rmdir zinstance/parts/instance/lib/python/Products

then install the license files into


and restart Plone.
