Bingo! That’s all. All your cPanel accounts will now see a new section called Softaculous Apps Installer using which you can install some great web apps using a single click.


If you’d like to customize the apps displayed on Softaculous Apps Installer, you can do it easily. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Login to WHM

  2. Search for the Plugins section on the navigation to your left

  3. Click on "Softaculous (Instant Installs)" in this section

  4. On this page, you’ll see a wide range of Web Apps that can be installed using Softaculous Apps Installer.

  5. Just enable all the Apps that you’d like to see on Softaculous

That’s it. You will now see the new apps visible under the Softaculous section of your cPanel accounts
