Initialize scripts

ZentaoPHP framework enables configuration and maintenance of ZenTao through the command. Please read http://devel.cnezsoft.com/book/extension/34_cli.html for more info about it.

The command line is very powerful, but it is a little bit complicated to use it. So common scripts, such as scripts to database backup and Burndown chart updating, have been provide in ZenTao 4.0+. Next, let's initialize these scripts.

After ZenTao is installed, there will be two scripts in the directory of  zentao/bin, init.bat and init.sh, which is applicable to Windows and Linux respectively. These two scripts are basically used to generatecommand lines. Why is it configured like this? Scripts, such as checkdb.php and backup.php under the directory of bin was included in ZenTao, but these scripts must be configurated before used it. Once ZenTao is updated to the latest version, all the modified scripts will be overidden. So these two initial scripts are provided to generate other scripts in ZenTao 4.0+. Now, let’s look at how to generate those scripts.

1. Windows

Use init.bat script in the Windows. For example, ZenTao is installed in the directoy of i: \ xampp
cd i:\xampp\zentao\bin

  • This script will notify you to enter the PHP file path, i:\xampp\php\php.exe. If other php environment is run, please enter your actual path.
  • You also need to enter ZenTao URL path. Please enter your actual domain, e.g. pms.abc.com. If the Port Number is not 80, you also need to enter the port number. Notes: For the one-click installation package of Windows or Linux, the address is ( for the Pro version). "zentao" must be included (for the professional version, include "zentaopro"). 
  • When the path of php executable files is set, init.bat will automatically generate scripts, such as backup.bat and computeburn.bat.

2. Linux

For Linux, init.sh will be used. Take the Linux one-click installation package as an example.
cd /opt/lampp/zentao/bin
sudo ./init.sh

  • This script will prompt you to enter the path of php executable files  /opt/lampp/bin/php. For other php environment, please enter your actual path.
  • You also need to enter the URL path for ZenTao. Please fill according to you actual domain, e.g. pms.abc.com. If the Port Number is not 80, you also need to enter the port number. 
  • When the path of php executable files is set, init.bat will automatically generate scripts, such as backup.bat and computeburn.bat.

3. Generate one-click installation package through the control panel for Windows

For Windows one-click installation package, scripts can be genetated through the control panel.

Notes:The access path of ZenTao is automatically judged when the scripts are generated through the control panel. So it may be wrong. If it is wrong, you can execute init.bat manually to regenerate scripts.

4. Generate one-click installation package through control panel for Linux

For Linux one-click installation package, scripts will be automatically generated when executing start or start88 script to start ZenTao runtime. The scripts can be regenerated later through the init.sh mentioned above.

Notes: When generated through start or start88 script, the access path to ZenTao is automatically judged. So it may be wrong. If it is wrong, you can execute init.sh manually to regenerate scripts.
