Posted by Brian F. on 15 July 2020 03:03 PM

This article assumes your cloud compute already has an existing cPanel/WHM license with the cPanel/WHM software installed.

Once you have purchased Softaculous for your cPanel/WHM cloud compute follow the steps below to complete the installation:

  1. Login to your cloud compute WHM admin panel (How to login to WHM)

  2. Once you have logged in to WHM using the top left search and locate the "Tweak Settings" interface:



  3. From the "Tweak Settings" menu use the right side search to look for "ioncube". Enable ioncube and save the changes:



  4. Now that ioncube is enabled we can SSH in to your compute and start the Softaculous installation. 

  5. Login to your cloud compute as root via SSH (How do I login to my compute using SSH?)

  6. Now we need to download the software. Copy and paste the following command to your computes SSH terminal then hit enter:

    wget -N http://files.softaculous.com/install.sh

  7. Once the download is completed copy and paste the following command to your computes SSH terminal then hit enter:

    chmod 755 install.sh

  8. To start the installation copy and paste the following command to your computes SSH terminal then hit enter:

    ./install.sh

  9. Softaculous is now installed and you can view/manage the installation through WHM under the Softaculous interface.

You can also refer to the official Softaculous cPanel/WHM documentation for usage instructions and other useful commands.
