One-click Installation Package for Linux has built-in Apache, PHP, MySQL. All you need to do is to unzip it. ZenTao has 32-bit and 64-bit packages. Please choose one that fits your OS.

1. Installation

The download address of Zentao: http://www.zentao.net/download.html 

1.1 Unzip to /opt.

    Do NOT unzip to other directories then copy it to /opt, as the owner and read/write privilege of the files might be changed. 

    Neither do NOT use the 777 permissions after unzipping the entire directory.

    Unzip it directly to /opt.

    You can use the command: tar -zxvf  ZenTaoALM.X.X.stable.zbox_XX.tar.gz -C /opt.

1.2 Start/Stop Apache and MySQL 

    Start : /opt/zbox/zbox start

   Stop : /opt/zbox/zbox start

    Restart: /opt/zbox/zbox restart

Note: If you want to start automatically after booting, you can add /opt/zbox/zbox restart to the self-start directory of the OS.

1.3 Login ZenTao

    Visit http://IP_of_ZenTao_Server: apache_port(default account is admin, password 123456) in your browser.

Notice: If the webpage cannot be accessed, please turn off the firewall and selinux of the computer where ZenTao is located, and then refresh the webpage to try it again. (Please open apache port in the security group when using cloud server)

1.4 Config Server (optional)

    Change Apache Port: /opt/zbox/zbox -ap portNumber

    Change Mysql Port: /opt/zbox/zbox -mp portNumber

    Start with ports config: /opt/zbox/zbox start -mp mp -ap ap

    Stop    : /opt/zbox/zbox stop

    Restart: /opt/zbox/zbox restart

    Get Help: /opt/zbox/zbox -h

2. Reuse your Apache and MySQL (optional)

For ZenTao 9.2.stable+, the security of Linux one-click installation package has been improved that PHP parse 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. 

3. Visit ZenTao database(optional)

3.1 Web 

    3.1.1 ZenTao database is managed by Adminer. For security reasons, account authentication is required when login. 

    Run /opt/zbox/auth/adduser.sh to add one account. 

    3.1.2 Visit http://IP_of_ZenTao_Server: apache_port, and click "MySQL" at the right bottom of the Page. In the popout window type your account that you added in addusers.sh . 

    3.1.3 Login the database

  • System: MySQL is selected by default.
  • Server: For example, Please be noticed that the IP can only be
  • Username: zentao. The default username is zentao.(if you changed, you could find it in /opt/zbox/app/zentao/config/db.php)
  • Password: 123456. The default password is 123456.(also in db.php)
  • Database: zentao.(also in db.php)

3.2 Command line

    Login database:  /opt/zbox/bin/mysql -u root -P mysql_ port -p . For example, /opt/zbox/bin/mysql -u root -P 3306 -p.

    Import database: /opt/zbox/bin/mysql -u root -P msyql_ port -p DATABASE NAME < XXXX.sql. For example, /opt/zbox/bin/mysql -u root -P 3306 -p zentao < zentao.sql.
