What Is Softaculous?

Softaculous is a free website and plugin installation software that is prepared for the installation of many content management systems such as Joomla, WordPress or Drupal and does not require any technical knowledge.

Softaculous is offered free of charge along with the cPanel control panel by many hosting companies already operating in Turkey. besides cpanel, it supports hosting control panels such as ISP System, Plesk, H-Sphere, Interworx, Parallels, ISPCONFIG, ISP Manager Direct Admin. For this reason, Softaculous hosting service for people who attract customers can also be called an add-on.

How To Enter Softaculous?

In today's article, we will describe the installation of Softaculous on cPanel. To install Softaculous, you must first log in to your cPanel management menu. After finding the Softaculous menu in this area, you can switch to the screen where you can install. If you are using a WordPress-based website, you can click on the “Install Now” tab. Here you can list the titles, features, and what you need to do, if any:

Choose installation URL: you can choose which website to install Softaculous for and whether you want to install “https://” or “http://”. If you do not have an SSL certificate, you must select “http://”. You can also choose to start with” www “or without” www".

Choose the version you Want to Install: from this field, you can choose your WordPress version. However, it is generally recommended that the default values remain.

Site Name: you can type your site name in this field. If you want, you can change it from the management panel later.

Site Description: you can write your descriptions of your website in this field.

Enable Multisite: if you are not going to use WPMU(WordPress MultiUser) on your site, you do not need to mark this area.

Admin Username: from this field, you can specify the user name that you will use to log in to your Administration panel.

Admin Password: this is the field where you will specify the user password that you prefer. The password must be at a certain level of difficulty.

Select Language: you can specify the language of your website in this area.

Limit login Attemps: a feature that allows you to give a limit error if there are too many attempts to enter the control panel(brute force attack)..

Advanced Options: in this field, the database name, user and password are created. Additional editing is not recommended because the system is created by default.

In addition, if you want to install in cpanal through a server SSH connection, rather than through its interface, you can type the following codes in the installation screen. Of course, installation will take some time, but all the scripts that Softaculous supports are pulled to your server.
