Installing Softaculous in ISPmanager

If you are using ISPmanager 5.33+ then Softaculous should be enabled by default on your server. In case it is not installed you can follow the guide below.

Note: Before starting the installation make sure ionCube extension is installed and SSL support is enabled for the domain. You can refer to the notes below on how to enable the same. Notes

1) Login to your ISPmanager control panel as root.
2) Go to the "Integration"=>"Modules" section of the panel’s left side menu. Softaculous is already available as one of the options to be installed on the server. Click "Install".
