Softaculous is a leading Auto Installer for control panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, InterWorx, and H-Sphere. It currently has 404 excellent scripts, with more being added all the time. We are all lazy, and we require a one-click solution for installing scripts (CMS : content management system) on our servers. Softaculous will assist you with this. After installing Softaculous, you can manage many scripts from your account’s cPanel. We can use Softaculous as an addon in a WHM/cPanel server to manage all installations.
For the Softaculous installation to work, the php extension IonCubeLoader must be enabled on your server. The installation is very simple and only consists of a few steps. We’ll go over the installation process here.
