How to Install Textpattern via Softaculous in cPanel?

1. Log into your cPanel account.

2.
In the Software section, click on the Softaculous App Installer Icon.


3.
cPanel will redirect you to the Softaculous Panel.

4. On the left side of your screen, you should locate the Blogs category. Click on it and then click on the Textpattern link that will appear.


5. Click on the Install button.



6. Fill the necessary field under the Software Setup field:

  • Choose Installation URL: Choose the appropriate protocol/domain. Inside the "In Directory" field, should you want to install this in a directory, i.e. example.com/directory, enter the directory name. Otherwise, leave it blank to install in your main domain, i.e. example.com



7. Under the Site Settings field, enter the following information:

  • Site Name: Enter the name of your website, such as my first website.
  • Site Description: Site Description.




8. Under the Admin Account field, enter the following information:

  • Admin Username: Your new Textpattern username (for security reason do not use the Administrator or the Admin username.)
  • Admin Password: Use a strong password.
  • Real Name: Leave this as it is or enter your real name.
  • Admin Email: Your e-mail address.



Note: Copy the admin username and password on a notepad because you will need these login details to access the admin area of your Textpattern blog.


9.
Advanced Options: Leave this as it is unless you want to change the database name or take an automated backup. Please note that taking frequent backups may take a lot of disk space.


Finally, scroll down to the end of the page and click on the Install button.

Customer Feedback

  • Since our clan first got a server with RackSRV we've had nothing but good experiences. The reliability and cost of services were top notch and support are a great help on the very rare occasions they're needed (and that's mostly due to us).

    Martin
  • These guys are brilliant, uncompromising support, go out of their way to help even above and beyond their remit. We needed a fast turn round on a new dedicated server, they delivered as promised and have been amazingly helpful ever since. Cant recommend them highly enough.

    Tom - DesignPlusHosting
  • Racksrv's VPS's are awesome, they're powerful servers, with very little load, plus an excellent network and staff.

    Adam
  • I recently moved one of my servers to RackSRV and I have to say the service I am receiving is without a doubt the best I have ever received. Very quick and extremely thorough. I will be moving the rest here soon for sure now.

    Peter - BlueBox Ltd
