Softaculous is an app that if very helpful with Wordpress installations.
I like that the library pairs well with web host management systems and is also self-explanatory to use. The icons that accompany the breakdown of the library's portions help display exactly what you need, which is nice. It's the best way to generate the installation of web applications to a website, particularly Wordpress.
I like how large of a variety Softaculous encompasses, but I do think it can get kind of confusing if you're not used to working with the applications. Because they partner with so many apps, it can be overwhelming to determine the function of each.
Quick easy 1-2 click installs with Softaculous
Softaculous has been a time saver, as a web developer I install all kinds of software...and Softaculous makes installing any of it much faster and simpler. No manually creating databases and clicking through multi-step installs. Instead, open Cpanel and click on Softaculous, select the software and you're done! I love it!
Very easy to use, pick one of dozens of available open-source software scripts (including Wordpess, Joomla, Magento and more!) and with 1-2 clicks you are done. Saves time and makes installing software SUPER EASY!
I actually don't have anything I dislike about Softaculous, the only thing I'd say, is perhaps more scripts?
No value to client - company with bad management
A leading solution provider but still without a phone number.
A shared hosting can have off peak hrs support but such a reputed old industry player don’t have anybody for escalation as they enjoying weekends
Team member was made aware but other than formal words no help
Seems they don’t find a reason to understand customer pain that end users can’t wait for days to have weekend end
Company don’t have any phone number but may have 100s of people working shows the kind of detachment of customer from main stream
Technical support was requested with all details and screenshot shared but still did or unsuspend the account even when all details of payment shared with screenshot
Go and sleep and may be only time will tell and cost you for your karma.
Karma has to be paid a day. if you drop in unpleasantness you will have to suffer for what you did
May you realise the value of word client and word business values soon. Nobody can survive without client and business factor in service industry better know before it’s late.
Hiring someone for SOS is not that big issue as far as you know what’s missing.
They don’t know others are still having TDS and still have online payment mode they don’t have much time with their own complicated payment modes. You have no common sense that even when TDS payment can be still made online.
When you have manual payment mode why no sos arrangements for people paid the amount. Very bad mgt.
Very bad management client suffers and they don’t care of SOS
Great Way to Easily Install Programs
My experience involves installing programs with Softaculous through a dashboard offered by a web host (a few different hosts). Softaculous makes it easy and fast.
I like how easy it is to use Softaculous. Most of my experience with it involves installing WordPress and I've found it easier to install with Softaculous as compared to some of the options offered by web hosts.
There is really nothing I didn't like about Softaculous. I use it for installing programs on my web hosting account, it works great and it's easy to use. No cons.
It runs along with wordpress, doing what needs done. I've not had any error signs saying anything was wrong.
I used this along with wordpress, when I had a question they answered quickly and clearly. Since it runs sort of in the background, I know it reccommended using it. I'm still not sure of it's purpose. Since I don't have any error messages, I assume it is doing what it is supposed to.
I don't have any complaints. It does what it should.
Makes installing Wordpress easy!
The only software I've ever used Softaculous to install is Wordpress. If your web host has cPanel and you are looking to install Wordpress on your new site, then Softaculous is the way to go. One click and a few fields to fill out and Wordpress is yours!
Honestly there is nothing I can think of. I have NEVER had to contact their customer support, so I have no idea if they are good or bad.
Easy to use installer
Quite easy to use and straightforward to use as an installer
I rely on this to install wordpress. This is an easy to use installer to install software required for my websites
Overall it is quite easy to use and I have no complaints about it. Quite straightforward to use. Quite useful
Very poor support
Best Option for Installing Software
Likelihood to recommend: 7.0/10
Waiting on support
Fairly easy to use and a lot of well written templates in SitePad
Last week it was down for 18 hours and we were not notified until we reached out to them.
They notified us it was fixed well after the issue was actually resolved.
Right now the site is throwing errors - I have logged a ticket and I am waiting for a response.
Speed up setup/testing of web CMS
I was impressed by the amount of software that this tool can install on your hosting server. I've used it to install Wordpress and it relieved me from many boring tasks, and it's especially very easy to test a large number of web applications. Definitely get a hosting that provides Softaculous. It even manages the backups!
Sometimes updates mess up with the installation and backups stop working. During an installation you may be asked questions that need some knowledge to be answered, and the default answers might not suit your needs. If you're not a provider, Softaculous is not something you should consider installing.
