Summary : Except for the one-click installation packages, you can also install the ZenTao runtime using source code package.

Except for the one-click installation packages, you can also install the ZenTao runtime using source code package.

1. Deploy PHP and MySQL runtime environment

There are many installation guides for PHP and MySQL, but you should pay attention to the followings.
1.1 ZenTao requires modules like pdo, pdo_mysql, json, and filter, so make sure that PHP environment can load these modules.
1.2 Linux + Apache + PHP(5.3/5.4/5.5/5.6/7.0/7.1 + MySQL(5.5/5.6)/mariadb is recommended, followed by Nginx, while IIS+PHP is not recommended.

1.3 On Linux,  it is NOT recommended to compile and install PHP. You'd better install the PHP by built-in Package Manager.

2. Download ZenTao source code

2.1 Download the latest source code (.zip file) from the ZenTao official website.

2.2 Unzip to get 'zentaoalm' directory. Copy it to the doc directory of webserver, such as 'www' or 'htdocs' of Apache.

2.3 Visit http:// IP:PORT/zentaoalm/www/index.php and it will automatically start the installation.

3. Installation Steps

 3.1 Welcome splash

 3.2 System checkup

 3.3 Database configuration

 3.4 Admin account

 3.5 Finish Installation

4.Reuse your Apache and MySQL (Optional)

Try Zdoo (our team collaborative product)),  Zsite (our CMS product)  and Xuanxuan(our IM for self hosted)

I installed Zentao on my own server.

Installation was successful and I could login.

But after login no theme is working. What can I do to make my themes work?

I also recognized I can't click anything that's triggered via "j a v a s c r i p t :;". This important for changing themes and languages.

What am I missing? How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance and good work so far!
