Question

Addon installation on-premise best practice

Hi community,

I was wondering what is considered today as best practice when installing addons on premise on : dev , test and production environments.

What we do actually for each individual add-on installation:
 

1. Update database structure where needed

2. Generate source code for all items

3. Compile all items

4. Install Add-on

5. Generate source code where neded

6. Compile where needed

I feel that doing this per addon per instance can be time consuming and wonder how much is it necessary.

  • Can the "update database, generate source code, compile" be done only once when installing a batch of addons?
  • Is there a step missing here ?

Thank you all in advance for pitching in !

Dear Damien, 

In order to make sure that installation process goes without errors, first of all you need to create and keep the backup of the website. 
After that you can install the batch of applications and generate\compile the website. 

It's not really necessary to generate source code\compile the website before installation

Kind regards,
Roman
