Want to know if you have any ideas why my other php sites (SuiteCrm, Adimino, qdPM, X2) work ok residing on my WordPress site but when I go to




to try to install I get a Page not found / 404 Error from WordPress?

Tried both Softaculous and manual unzip installs.

Thx for any help.

I don't try install zentaopms under wordpress yet.

Perhaps there're some url rewrite rules under wordpress which block the www path in zentao.

If you can control the apache server or nginx server, you can try add an alias in the config file like this:

# setting for zentaopms.
Alias /zentao "/the path to/zentaopms/www/"
<Directory "/the path to zentaopms/www">
  Order deny,allow
  Allow from all
  AllowOverride All
  Require all granted
then you can access zentao by the url: http://www.mulikids.org/zentao/

Perhaps you should change the .htaccess file in zentaopms/www/

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d 
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f 
  RewriteRule (.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]

change the RewriteRule (.*)$ index.php/$1 [L] to RewriteRule (.*)$ /zentao/index.php/$1 [L]

Also you can add a virtual server in your webserver like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerAdmin zentao@local.net
  DocumentRoot "/path to zentaopms/www"
  ServerName zentao.mulikids.org
  <Directory />
    AllowOverride all
    Require all granted
  ErrorLog "logs/error_log"
  CustomLog "logs/access_log" combind

Thx but none of this worked.

I am not installing as part of wordpress, just shares the server as my package doesn't have sub domain ability

Using a shared server

If I move everything out from under the www folders what will I need to fix?  My other apps dont have this extra layer...

 RewriteRule (.*)$ /zentao/index.php/$1 [L]

should this be

RewriteRule (,*)$  /zentaopms/....?

you can try to remove .htaccess under zentaopms/www/

or change the rewrite url to /zentaopms/www/

May some rewrite rules of wordpress confilcs with zentao.

That didn't work either, bummer because I really liked the demo and how the program works.  Want to use it for a current project I am working on for a major hospital so I was really wanting to use it.

There are 74,652,825 WordPress sites and 13,437,508 are self hosted so hopefully in the future you can add a section on how to install Zentao in a shared server with WP.  Thx for trying.

OK, I will test it.

We have tried on my server, it's ok.

So, perhaps it's the problem of the shared server.

You can add my skype: wwccss@gmail.com

I can check the server by remote.
