What is Softaculous

Softaculous is one of the most popular and favorite auto installers in the Web hosting industry. It includes a list of more than 400 scripts and 1115 PHP Classes which is continuously updated and extended.

Softaculous has become over the years the leading Scripts installer as it includes almost every script and CMS that anyone will need. Some of the most popular scripts included are WordPress, Joomla, SMF, Drupal, Dolphin, PrestaShop and a thousand more.

Whilst Softaculous can be installed in the most popular web hosting control panels like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Interworx, Plesk and ispManager, in this article we will provide a step-by-step tutorial on how to install Softaculous in cPanel.
