How do I use the Softaculous – One Click Installer via cPanel?




On the 27th of May 2003 WordPress was launched and has since become the most popular open source blogging tool on the web. Joomla! was created little over two years later and is a close rival along with Drupal. Opencart is now one of the most popular shopping carts in world and it is also open source. What do these all have in common?

They can all be set up easily using our “Softaculous”! This is a feature on your control panel that will allow you to set this up very easily and quickly. The result is that you can create powerful, professional websites or shopping carts quickly and easily. There are a couple of things to note before you start:

1. This requires a MySQL or MS SQL database to be allowed on your domain and this is only available on hosting packages above Home hosting. 

2. Installing this requires you to turn PHP safe mode off on your domain. For instructions on this, 

3. Installing this will over-right any website you may have previously had on your domain.

This is free on all our packages above home hosting and you can set this up by logging into your Yournic control panel.



Once you are done you simply need to need to choose your application, click install and fill in a quick form. It is as simple as that to get started on building your very own professional website.
