How To Demo a Script Before Installing With Softaculous

You can use several applications to create a website, and you may find it confusing which among them you should use. Wouldn't it be awesome to view how a website would look before actually installing it? This article discusses how to use the demo functionality of Softaculous. We will use WordPress as an example.

You may find some links below that will take you directly to your cPanel, provided that the following conditions are met:
  • You are logged in to your Customer Portal. You can also log in after clicking the link.
  • The hosting package you are attempting to access is either Shared or Cloud. The link will only work for the first type of this package listed in the billing account.
  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. Under the Software section, click on Softaculous Apps Installer.
