Firstly i install plone 6 from its packages from this site--Install Plone from its packages โ€“ Install โ€” Plone Documentation v6.0

Secondly : after install of plone 6 it run frontend and backend so on opening the plone 6 website folder using vscode it shows different folders and stuff as from the plone Barceloneta repository
