What is Softaculous

Softaculous is the free HostUpon One-Click App Installer that automates the installation of over 350 scripts. Softaculous makes installing software such as WordPress and Joomla simple and easy.

Softaculous does everything involved in the installation process, including creating databases and setting up usernames and password.

Customers can access Softaculous inside their cPanel under the Software section.


Third party applications are not fully managed and are beyond the scope of HostUpon support. Since these applications are not developed by HostUpon, outside assistance for these applications is available through online forums or by contacting the script provider directly.

HostUpon simply provides an easy way to install open-source software. We cannot guarantee that every script is compatible with our hosting services.
