2)Go to the “Integration”=>”Modules” section of the panel’s left side menu. Softaculous is already available as one of the options to be installed on the server. Click “Install”.

3) Wait for Softaculous to be installed on your server. This will only take a moment.

4) Once installation starts, a message will be displayed asking you to confirm that Softaculous should be configured on the server. Click “Ok” and wait for the installation to finish.

5) Softaculous is now installed on your server and ready for use! You can access it from the “External applications” =>”Softaculous” section of the panel’s left side menu.

That’s it, Softaculous is now installed and ready to use!
