61 1.1 Installation
62
63 A XEM installation works like XWiki Enterprise (XE). Thus to install XEM check the [XE installation instructions>platform:AdminGuide.Installation#HInstallingtheXWikiWARmanually].
64
65 When compared to XE, XEM is different in the following areas:
66 * Actually at this time only MySQL and Oracle databases engines are fully supported.
67 * You'll have to configure your database so that it has the rights to create new databases. See the [Virtualization guide>platform:AdminGuide.Virtualization#HRequirements] for details on how to do this.
68
69 Once you have finished the standard XE-like installation, go to the XEM home page and follow the instructions there.

72 1.1 Common Migration notes
73
74 The database structure has been changed but we have set up an automatic migration system so you shouldn't have to touch your Database to upgrade to 1.3. Thus you can simply install this version and configure it to point to your existing database.
75
76 #warning("You'll also need to define the property <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=all</tt> to your <tt>xwiki.cfg</tt> file or explicitely name all databases to be migrated as in <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,...</tt>.")
77
78 You may also want to [import the default XEM wiki XAR>Main.Download] in order to benefit from improvements listed above.
79
80 #warning("Always make sure you compare your <tt>xwiki.cfg</tt> file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Of note, you should add <tt>xwiki.store.migration=1</tt> so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.")
81
82 #info("Make sure you import the new [Panels Application XAR 1.4>extensions:Extension.Panels Application] since it's required by the new Albatross and Toucan skin versions.")
