This tutorial will review the process of installing Drupal through the Softaculous auto-installer. The process is simple and you can complete it with a few clicks.
Log into your cPanel account and locate the Software/Services section. Then simply click on the Softaculous icon.
Softaculous will display all of the applications available for a free installation. They are categorized by their functionality so you can find what you need easily. Now, for the purpose of this tutorial, let us choose the Drupal application, which is located within the "Portals/CMS" section.
You will be presented with a Drupal overview, which includes information about the application, reviews, ratings and much more. You will also be able to test a live demo of the script, before you can choose to use it. Click on the Install button to proceed.
Next is the actual configuration of Drupal on your account. Softaculous will allow you to edit a list of options for the new installation and we will review them in full. The first section, named "Software Setup" includes the following options:

The new installation of Drupal is now completed. The system will display the main direct link to your website. Keep it safe as you will need it in the future.
