How to install Softaculous Apps in cPanel

Install Softaculous Apps in cPanel

Softaculous is a library script library that automates the installation of commercial and open source web applications on a website. Softaculous scripts are run from the admin area of a website's dashboard, usually through an interface tool like cPanel, Plesk, H-Sphere, DirectAdmin, and InterWorx. Softaculous applications generally create tables in a database, install software, adjust permissions, and modify web server configuration files.

Softaculous targets open source software and is available in Free and Premium license versions. The free version supports 46 scripts. The Premium version has 436 scripts and 1115 PHP classes. The premium license version costs $1.5/month for virtual servers and $2.5/month for dedicated servers.

The installation of Softaculous in cPanel can be relatively simple, we simply access our server with the permissions of the root user and execute the following commands.
As a requirement to download the Softaculous installer it is necessary to install (wget) so we execute the following command.

Yum install wget
