It’s really easy to install Softaculous on DirectAdmin and this tutorial will guide you step by step.
You are going to need two things:
1) Ioncube loaders installed
2) DirectAdmin root access
Step 1 – Login into DirectAdmin with your “root” account via SSH.
Step 2 – Execute the following commands:
# cd /usr/local/directadmin/plugins # wget -n http://www.softaculous.com/da/install_softaculous.php # chmod 755 install_softaculous.php # /usr/local/bin/php -d open_basedir=/ -d safe_mode=0 -d disable_functions="" /usr/local/directadmin/plugins/install_softaculous.php
Installation will begin and you should see the status of your installation in a moment.
If ionCube is not installed, here are the steps. Do take note if your web server is powered by CentOS, Softaculous will install ionCube loaders automatically.
Step 1 – Login into DirectAdmin with your “root” via SSH.
Step 2 – Download ionCube loader and rename it to “ioncube.so”.
Step 3 – Move “ioncube.so” into the following directory.
Step 4 – Softaculous is now ready to be used.
