In order to simplify installation, a one-click installation for Windows has integrated with Xampp, a very famous AMP integrated environment. 

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. Reuse your Apache and Mysql (Optional)

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 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  : )

6. Visit ZenTao database(Optional)

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

6.2 Browse (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.

Note:  your browser might autofill a Username and Password, which is not the one that you need. Refer to what have been mentioned above and change it.
