What is Softaculous?

Softaculous is a script library that automates the installation of web applications to your website, including blogs, shopping carts, and full-featured content managers. All you have to do is install the script, one per directory, using the easy directions provided for each one. Go ahead and try them out – they’re just as easy to uninstall!

Using a script will take up one MySQL database, but you’re given 100 to work with, which is more than most users require.


If you still have questions about the powerful script auto-installer, please visit our Softaculous page or contact us by opening a support ticket or by using our live chat feature.
