How to Install bbPress Forum 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 Forums category. Click on it and then click on the bbPress 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. Enter the following details under the Site Settings field:

  • Site Name: Name of the forum.
  • Site Description: Site Description.
  • Enable Multisite (WPMU): Leave this as it is.




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

  • Admin Username: Your new bbPress username (for security reason do not use the Administrator or the Admin username.)
  • Admin Password: Use a strong password.
  • Admin Email: Your e-mail address. (Useful for administrator account password reset, notification, etc.)



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

9. Select Plugin(s): You can skip this or select plugins you wish to install.


10. 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

  • Very happy with service, just no longer a requirement for the server. will definitely be looking again should our needs change.

    Jason - TFLI Ltd
  • Jon@RackSRV has been great to us, we have a couple of off-net servers with them for backup/DR purposes and have had zero problems. Everything was set up quickly, despite us choosing the wrong options when ordering the server and the prices Jon gave us are fantastic, no-one else could even come near them. I've never...

  • Just a quick note to say that the support and the server have been second to none, with no downtime which has been a first!! Any problems that I had have been sorted quickly (all user errors on my part though!)

    Ian

    Alexander - Dev Advisory Uk Ltd
  • Neither Call of Duty 6 (Modern Warfare 2) nor Battlefield: Bad Company 2 support fully dedicated servers, so we no longer have any use for a dedicated box. I'd like to say though, your service has been truly excellent and I deeply regret that we cannot continue renting from you.

    Oliver
