If you install Zdoo in a shared space, make sure it meets the requirement of Zdoo RTE.

The core code of Zdoo is encrypted by Ioncube, an encryption software ( HTML, CSS, JS, configuration, and language are open source). Therefore, in order to run Zdoo it, you have to install ioncube first. Check Chapter Install Ioncube.

3. Start installing

3.1 Start the installation wizard

Go to your domain http://domain/www/sys/install.php. If you configure the root directory of your virtual host to /www, visit  http://domain/sys/install.php to start the installation. If you want to install Zdoo to the second-level directory, you need to add a second-level path, e.g.  http://domain/zdoo/www/sys/install.php .

3.3 Configure database

Note: If you have installed Zdoo before, you can click "Clear data" to reinstall.
