I host all my sites on Linux systems with cPanel and my webhost uses Fantastico previously to help with installing popular scripts (ex. drupal, joomla, wordpress, phpbb etc) on my websites. While logging into cPanel today, I noticed that my web host has replaced Fantastico with Softaculous.
Are you looking for more software to install, but don’t have time to read through instructions for installation? We’re glad to announce availability of a new tool to help install software on your account: Softaculous – Instant Installs! Softaculous has replaced Fantastico in your account, providing more software for automatic installation and upgrade. New features are available including a user-feedback rating system, software demonstrations, and more.
Softaculous currently offers 131 applications and scripts for quick, easy installation, with more arriving every day. If you already have software installed via Fantastico, these installations have been transitioned* into Softaculous already, so that you can continue to maintain them.
*A small number of older applications formerly available in Fantastico are no longer available in Softaculous, so these are unavailable for new installations (but any existing installations are still present in your account of course). These applications include phpWCMS, phpWebSite, Siteframe, Typo3, PerlDesk, Support Logic Helpdesk, Support Services Manager, YaBBSE, AccountLab Plus, phpCOIN, Soholaunch Pro Edition, Templates Express, Dew-NewPHPLinks, PHPauction, and phpFormGenerator.)
