You can upgrade ZenTao Pro to ZenTao Enterprise. Look at the example below. It is to upgrade ZenTao Pro via one-click installation package for Window to ZenTao Enterprise.

Note: One-click installation package for Windows is in xampp/zentaopro/ and that for Linux /opt/zbox/zentaopro/.

1. Before the upgrade

1.1 Make sure that ZenTao open source is accessible.

1.2 Back up data for ZenTao open source and refer to the manual HERE.

1.3 Download ZenTao Enterprise installation package that fits your PHP version.

1.4 Back up the license file of ZenTao Enterprise which is the bizext.txt and callback.php in zentaopro/config/license). After you override the directory of zentaopro, copy bizext.txt and callback.php to the new directory of zentaopro/config/license.
