One-click Installation Package for Linux has built-in Apache, Php, MySQL. All you need to do is to unzip it.  We have 32-bit and 64-bit packages. Please choose one that fits your OS.

1. Installation(3 steps: unzip/start/login)

1.1 Unzip to /opt.

 Do NOT unzip to other directories then copy it to /opt, as the owner and read/write privilege of the files might be changed. 

 When Unzip, 

 please use : tar -zxvf  ZenTaoPMS.X.X.stable.zbox_XX.tar.gz -C /opt.

1.2 Start/Stop Apache and MySQL 

    to Start : /opt/zbox/zbox start

1.3 Login ZenTao

    Use browser to access http://IP_of_ZenTao_Server: apache_port. (default account is admin,and its password 123456)

    Installation is ok.

1.4 Config Server (optional)

    to Change Apache Port: /opt/zbox/zbox -ap portNumber

    to Change Mysql Port: /opt/zbox/zbox -mp portNumber

    to Start with ports config: /opt/zbox/zbox start -mp mp -ap ap

    to Stop    : /opt/zbox/zbox stop

    to Restart: /opt/zbox/zbox restart

    to Get Help: /opt/zbox/zbox -h

2. Reuse your Apache and Mysql (optional)

   For ZenTao 9.2.stable+, the security of Linux one-click installation package has been improved that PHP parse is forbidden.

If you want to install  Zdoo (our open source  collaborative system) ,  Zsite (our open source CMS) , Xuanxuan(our open source IM)  or  other third-party software, you have to change the file /opt/zbox/etc/apache/httpd.conf

Modify SetHandler text/plain to SetHandler application/x-httpd-php  then restart Apache. Welcome to try  Zdoo , Zsite and Xuanxuan : )

3. Visit ZenTao database(optional)

3.1 Web 

    3.1.1 ZenTao database is managed by Adminer. For security reasons, account authentication is required when login. 

    Run /opt/zbox/auth/adduser.sh to add one account you will. 

    3.1.2 Visit http://IP_of_ZenTao_Server: apache_port, and click "MySQL" at the right bottom of the Page. In the popout window type your account that you added in addusers.sh . 

    3.1.3 Login the database

  • System: MySQL is selected by default.
  • Server: For example,
  • Username: zentao. The default username is zentao.(if you changed, you could find it in /opt/zbox/app/zentao/config/db.php)
  • Password: 123456. The default password is 123456.(also in db.php)
  • Database: zentao.(also in db.php)

3.2 Command line

    Login database:  /opt/zbox/bin/mysql -u root -P mysql_port -p . For example, /opt/zbox/bin/mysql -u root -P 3306 -p.

    Import database: /opt/zbox/bin/mysql -u root -P msyql_port -p DATABASE NAME < XXXX.sql. For example, /opt/zbox/bin/mysql -u root -P 3306 -p zentao < zentao.sql.
