Welcome to the Escenic Community Expansion install guide. Before we start, note that we will use two abbreviations a lot in this guide, namely ECE which is the Escenic Content Engine and VCE, which is the Escenic Community Expansion.

VCE is a module (or plug-in) for the ECE. Before proceeding with this guide, be sure to have your ECE up and running. Installing ECE is extensively documented in the "Escenic Content Engine Installation Guide" and "Escenic Server Administration Guide" available on
