In order to simplify installation, a one-click installation for Windows has been integrated with XAMPP, a very well-known AMP integrated environment. ZenTao’s one-click installation package is mainly simplified based on the XAMPP, and integrates our self-developed integrated panel, which will be more convenient to use. Regarding the one-click installation package of XAMPP, you can visit the following official website if you have any interest: https://www.apachefriends.org/ (Note: This is the official website of XAMPP, not the one-click installation package of ZenTao).

ZenTao 9.2.stable version has upgraded the Windows one-click installation package.

The ZenTao running integrated panel has upgraded to version 2.0.0. We have packaged separately for 64-bit and 32-bit. Please download the corresponding Windows one-click installation package according to your computer.

Enable the function of Apache user authentication and change the MySQL password, and you will be prompted to install the VC environment during a new installation.

The XXD service has been integrated into the windows one-click installation package, so there is no need to install and deploy XXD separately. For the windows operating system, the server version is recommended to be 2012 or 2016 and above.

1. Installation 

1.1 Download the latest one-click installation ( .exe file).

1.2 Double-click to unzip it to a root directory, such as c:\zentao or d:\zentao, be noticed that it must be the root directory.

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 configure 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 log in ZenTao (the 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, log in 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 the 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 the one-click installation package has been improved and the PHP parser is forbidden.

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

Note: Your browser might autofill a Username and Password that might not be the one that you need. Refer to what has been mentioned above and change it.

When other users accessing my zentao app, every day first time it does not work. I will have use ADMIN login in their PC first and then actual zentao login appears. How can i avoid this?
