Softaculous is a software installation program that makes it easy for you to load internet applications like Wordpress, Joomla or Drupal. This simplifies the installation process saving you time and the frustration of gathering and interpreting installation files using pre-programmed setup routines.
This tutorial will show you the simple steps to installing a program with Softaculous. There are well over 200 programs in Softaculous, but installing each application follows the same procedure.
How to setup an application using Softaculous:
|Browsing programs||Top Applications|
|If you want to browse through the available programs you can install using Softaculous, click on any category in the left menu. For example, if you want to run a blog, then click the Blogs category. This will list all of the blogging applications available in Softaculous.||Under Top Applications, you will find a listing of the most popular applications being used on the web today. For example, Joomla, one of the most popular programs on the web, is listed with their program logo under TOP APPLICATIONS
|Choose Protocol||The most common option here will either be http:// or http://www.
|Choose Domain||If you are managing multiple domain names on your account, choose the one that you will specifically use for the program you are loading with Softaculous
|In Directory||This setting allows you to select the specific folder name used by Softaculous for the installation of the program. This will affect the URL used for your application. For example, if you wanted users to visit http://domain.com/blog (instead of simply http://domain.com) to see your WordPress site, you would enter blog for this setting. The application files will reside in the folder you specify.
|Database Name||Name used to create the application database. Do not change this unless you have a specific requirement to do so.
|Table Prefix||This prefix is used in the creation of the tables of the database created for the application. Again, do NOT change this unless you are familiar with the database and you are required to change it.
