How Does Softaculous Work?

If you’ve ever struggled with installing applications, you know how frustrating the process can be. Imagine being able to install applications with a single click? Sound too good to be true? – Well, it’s not! Thanks to Softaculous!

Softaculous essentially automates the entire process of installing web applications onto your website. How? – By using predefined scripts. The installations of applications are launched directly from the admin area of a site. The auto-installer runs in the control panel of your system, which is precisely why the process is so simple. The applications covered by Softaculous are pretty incredible. Some of the web applications covered include:

  • Blogging
  • eCommerce
  • Customer relationship management
  • Content management
  • Customer support
  • Enterprise research management

And so much more!

Softaculous has made the installation of web applications a single-click process. Once the required information is entered, the program will automatically configure and organise the database, files for your web server, permissions, and installation.

Does Softaculous Integrate with Control Panels?

One of the first questions our clients ask is whether or not Softaculous integrates with control panels. The answer to that, of course, is a resounding YES! While there are plenty of auto installers out there, many of them only have the ability to be integrated with specific systems, like Plesk or cPanel; however, that is not the case with Softaculous. This application installer integrates with virtually every system, including:

  • InterWorkx
  • cPanel
  • ISPmanager
  • H-Sphere
  • CentOS Web Panel
  • VestaCP
  • ISPConfig
  • Plesk
  • Windows Hosting Controller

Those are just a few of the control panels this auto-installer works with. It’s this type of flexibility that will allow your small business to stand out from bigger competitors.

Softaculous Saves Major Time

If there’s one thing all small business owners have in common, it’s that there never seems to be enough hours in the day. Trying to juggle all of the various facets of your business while also attempting to figure out how to install software and applications onto servers means that many small business owners are left with very little time in their days.

With Softaculous, you can get back some of your time! Why? – Because it handles the installation and updates of your software needs for you. In the time it would typically take you to install a single application, you can have severe applications installed with Softaculous.

In addition to being able to install several applications with just a click of your mouse, you can also be assured that your applications will be installed with exact precision so that everything functions exactly how it should. Once the install is complete, your applications will be fully functioning and ready to use. That’s not always the case with a traditional application install.
