How to Install FUDforum via Softaculous in cPanel?

1. Log into your cPanel account.

2. In the Software and Services section, click on Softaculous 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 FUDforum 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.
  • Data Directory: You can leave this as it is.


7. Enter the following details under the Site Settings field:

  • Site Name: Name of your Forum like Your Domain Name - My Forum Name.
  • Site Description: Site Description.




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

  • Admin Username: Your new FUDforum 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 FUDforum Forum.


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.

  • 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
  • I trialled the service for a future project and I'm very satisfied. I will be back in the near future for sure!

    Pierluigi - Computer's Home
  • Over the past 2 weeks we have been hit by every conceivable problem a hosted service might have - catastrophic hardware failure, DDoS attack and overwhelmingly high organic load - all at once. We have had to lean heavily on the guys at RackSRV to get us through. On every occasion, they responded calmly, professionally...

    Ian - Chalkface Project Ltd
  • Like many I had been buying servers from American companies with poor customer support under the illusion that you just can't get a decent server for a decent price in the UK. Racksrv disproved that myth for me. Their offer of a powerful server based in the UK, generous transfer allowances, and awesome customer supp...

  • Great service super impressed with your infrastructure. I really loved your server I but I did not get enough traffic to my site to justify keeping it. You guys rock. I will be back when I have more servers needed.

  • We have been very happy with the service provided by RackSRV. The few times we've had any issues, RackSRV have been quick to help us out, even after-hours and on weekends. RackSRV have been very good at informing us in advance if any down-time could be expected etc.
