This upgrade instruction applies to users who have installed ZenTao open source and want to upgrade it to ZenTao Pro.

1. Ioncube Loader

If you are using the one-click installation package which includes Ioncube loader, you can skip this step.

If you are using the uniserver or other PHP runtime environment, you can refer to this article  //www.zentao.pm/book/zentaoprohelp/135.html to install the loader.

2. Back up ZenTao

Back up your data in ZenTao in case it is lost after upgrading. Refer to Back Up ZenTao in ZenTao open source manual.

4.2 Unzip the license file of ZenTao Pro and copy its last four files to zentao/config/license/. If there is no such folder, create one.

Can you tell me the open source version number and the version you would like to upgrade to? When I have the information, I can prepare a package for you to upgrade it. You can also send it to renee@easysoft.ltd.
