One-click installation package for Windows based on Xampp is offered to simplify the installation for you. Xampp is a well-known AMP integrated operating environment. ZenTao one-click installation package is simplified based on Xampp, and integrates our self-developed integrated Runner, which will be more convenient.

For one-click installation of Xampp, visit the official website

ZenTao Runner is upgraded to version 2.0.0. ZenTao Max is packaged separately for 64-bit and 32-bit. Please download the corresponding Windows one-click installation package according to your device.

Enable the Apache user authentication and modify the mysql password, and the fresh installation will prompt to install the VC environment.

Note: The XXD service has been integrated in the windows one-click installation package, so you do not have to install and deploy XXD separately.

1. Installation 

1.1  Download  the latest  one-click installation  ( .exe file).
1.2  Double-click to  unzip it to a directory, such as d:\zentao.

1.3 Double-click  Xampp\ start.exe to launch  control panel shown below

   (If VC is not installed, there will be a prompt asking you to install VC++.)

1.4 You can  config your ports by going to "Services->Config port", then click  'Start Zentao', and wait a moment for it to start.

2. Change MySQL password

2.1 Once started, a prompt will remind you to change the database password. You can use the password recommended or set one for your own. 

2.2 You can check and change the password by "Password->MySQL setting" later.

3. Login ZenTao

3.1 Enable 'Apache authentication' refer to Section 4.

3.2 Use a Super Admin account to login ZenTao  ( default account is  admin  and its password is  123456).

3.3 If the password is too weak, ZenTao will remind you to change it.

3.4 If you want to use a weak password, login ZenTao as Super Admin and go to Admin->Security to change it.

4. Apache authentication( Optional)

4.1 Once started, Apache user authentication is ON by default. Uncheck "Enable Apache authentication", if you want to set it OFF.

4.2 If Apache authentication is on, users have to enter the account and password to visit ZenTao, unless by clicking "Visit Zentao" on control panel. Non-Admin users have to ask for the account and password from the Admin.

5.  Re use your Apache and Mysql ( Op tional)

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

If you want to install   Zdoo (our collaborative system),  Zsite (our CMS),  Xuanxuan(our 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.

6. Visit ZenTao database( Optional)

6.1 It is default setting that database can only be login on ZenTao sever. 

6.2 Browse PORT (Port is required, if it is not 80), then click "MySQL" on the login page to enter "ZenTao Adminer".

Type config in  xampp/zentao/config/db.php to visit ZenTao database.
