We also have Windows one-click installation packages.

1. Installation

Zsite 6.4+ and Zsite Pro 1.5 have upgraded the one-click installation for Windows. Its security and interface have been optimized and control panel added. Now let's take a look at how to install, start and visit Zsite with the new installation package for Windows.

1.1 Install

Download Windows integrated operating system (zsite.***.exe) from our website. Double-click to unzip it to a root directory of any partition, such as C:\xampp or D:\xampp. Go to the folder named xampp, and double-click start.bat to launch Zsite control panel.    (If VC is not installed, there will be a prompt asking you to install VC++.)

Start Zsite and you will see the control panel as shown below,

Change the password of Zsite database:

  • The default account to Zsite database is admin and its password is 123456. You will be asked to change it right after you start Zsite for the first time
  • Click OK to save the password, or change it and save.
  • Go to xampp/chanzhi/system/config/my.php to check the password you set or change it.

Apache authentication:

  • Apache authentication is ON by default. You can uncheck it.
  • If it is ON, the account and the password will be required to visit the frontend as shown below,

Log in Zsite database:

It is the default setting that database can only be login on Zsite sever. 

Enter (Port is required, if it is not 80.)in the browser, then click "MySQL" on the login page to enter the Adminer.

Enter the parameters in xampp/chanzhi/system/config/my.php to access Zsite database


Server:paratmeters of $config->db->host and port. For example, $config->db->host = '',$config->db->port = '3306', so the server is。

Username:the parameter of $config->db->user = 'root', so it is root.

Password:the parameter of $config->db->password = ' '.(Enter what is between the single quotation marks.)

Database:the parameter of $config->db->name = 'chanzhi ', so it is chanzhi.


2. For Zsite version <= 6.4

2.1 Install

Download Windows integrated operating system (zsite.***.exe) from our website.  Double-click to unzip it to a root directory of any partition, such as C:\xampp or D:\xampp.

Go to the folder named xampp, and double-click start.bat to launch Zsite control panel.

Click "Start" to launch Zsite service.

Click "Access Zsite" to enter Zsite front-end, or enter

The default backend address with a default admin account "admin" and the default password "123456". If your default port is not 80, you have to manually add one.

3. About Zsite runtime

3.1 The access path to Zsite is http://Zsite IP address:port/zentao/. Zsite IP address is the IP address of the machine installed Zsite. If the Port is not 80, change it to the actual port you use.

3.2 Zsite control panel will install Apache and MySQL, and the service names are apachezt and mysqlzt.

3.3 This environment is a simplified version of xampp.

4. What if the control panel failed...

In case you could not launch the control panel, you can start Zsite with control script.

4.1 Go to xampp\service.

4.2 Double-click install.bat, then Apache and MySQL will be automatically installed and launched.

4.3 After you install Zsite, there will be port.apache and port.mysql to record the port number of Apache and MySQL. If you want to change the port, please delete the two files and run install.bat again.
