Summary : This article will talk about how to upgrade ZenTao via source code for various installations.

The upgrade is to save the data of the old version, so make sure to backup the data before the upgrade to avoid data loss due to accidents during the upgrade. After the service is stopped, copy the ZenTao code directory as the backup and the database backup.

Here are the steps to upgrade for all systems:

I. Upgrade Steps

  1. Download the new version of the source package ending in .zip from our website. For the versions after open source 16.5, please select the installation package according to the php version.
  2. Unzip the new program and overwrite it to the original directory. For example, if the directory where zentao was previously installed is under c:\xampp\zentao, overwrite the code to c:\xampp\zentao by copying all the files under zentaopms/ to xampp/zentao/ and pasting them under it.
  3. Execute the upgrade process. If the access path of ZenTao is, the upgrade path is
  4. Follow the guide, select the right version and just follow the steps.


  • Do not remove the original program and unzip the new version, pay attention that it is overwritten! Do not copy into c:\xampp\zentao\zentao.
  • Do not download the program with .exe end for upgrade, that will overwrite the original data!

II. Plug-in Compatible Issues

If you have installed 3rd party plug-ins before the upgrade, you need to check if they are compatible with the new version of ZenTao. If you find that you cannot access it after the upgrade, please replace the ZenTao running code with:

  1. Rename the current running code folder of ZenTao ( the default is usually zentao or zentaopms).
  2. Download the same source code of same version of ZenTao from our website, unzip it and put it under the same directory, keeping the folder name the same as the name of the previous folder of ZenTao running code.
  3. Copy the config/my.php www/data/upload/1 www/.ztaccess www/.htaccess from the original folder to the corresponding directory of the new ZenTao folder, and then try to access ZenTao.
