SoftaculousMany web hosts turn toward Fantastico to handle their automatic script installs, but did you know there are other script bundles that do the same?  Another very popular script auto installer is Softaculous.  This collection of scripts is ideal for any web hosting company that wants to offer a lot of “one click” script installs to their customers.

With this installed on your server, you can offer the ability to quickly install over 250 of the web’s most popular scripts. You have all the favorites like WordPress, Joomla, phpBB, SMF, Drupal, MyBB and more all ready to go.  They also do a much better job (in comparison to Fantastico) when it comes to interfaces too.  Everything is categorized, colorful and easy to use.

Softaculous also works with all the most popular control panels, including:

  • H-Sphere
  • cPanel
  • DirectAdmin
  • Plesk
  • InterWorx

If you are a web host looking to offer a different way to handle the automatic script installs on their hosting account, Softaculous is a great tool to look into.  You can learn more about them by visiting their website at
